Join our member and meditation leader Laura Hegfield to examine themes Rabbi Jon has outlined in his Elul Roadmap for our community during this month leading up to the Yamim Noraim (High Holy Days).

Each session will begin with a brief guided mindfulness meditation followed by a prompt for further exploration through journal writing. After 20 minutes of FreeWriting (a technique of writing without lifting the pen off the paper, stopping or editing, circumventing self-judgment, and yes I see the possible irony posed by the words I’ve just typed considering Elul is a time sacred time for focused self-assessment to facilitate teshuvah!), we will take turns reading and listening to one another without comment, simply loving presence.  

No previous meditation or writing experience is necessary. Just bring a pen, a notebook or a few sheets of paper, a willingness to trust the practice and the love in the Zoom room.

While this offering is limited to 7 participants to allow for intimacy and enough time for everyone to share, it is possible to add a separate evening group if there is interest.

The Zoom information will be sent with your registration.

Sorry, Registration has ended.
