Join us for an Upcoming Virtual Gathering
Prepare for Shabbat through chant, movement, and healing prayers – designed to calm the nervous system and cultivate kindness, compassion, and healing energy in this challenging time. You’ll have an opportunity to share the names of specific people and places you’re holding in your heart for healing; we end by speaking the mourner’s Kaddish prayer, to support those who are mourning the loss of loved ones.
This five-part class series will delve into some of the main streams of Jewish mysticism, from the prophets and merkhavah mystics of ancient times through the medieval and more contemporary approaches. In each session we’ll learn background, read texts, and try on practices, with an eye to experiencing how these transformational methods might enrich our spiritual lives today. No prior experience with kabbalah or meditative practice is needed; all are welcome!
Class is free for TBI members; $36 minimum donation for non-members. To register, contact Beth Parker at TBI. For more information, contact Rabbi Diane.
Spiritual Direction with Rabbi Diane Elliot
Spiritual Direction is an evolving discipline built on the art of holy listening. Together, the director and the directee listen deeply and with compassion for the currents of truth, of wisdom, and for the sacred, held in suspension in even the most challenging experiences. In the process of Spiritual Direction, Rabbi Diane will help you to focus your awareness on your inner space, listening for kol d'mamma, the soft, murmuring voice of Spirit within and around you. You will feel companioned, heard, and encouraged to open your heart to Loving Presence in the midst of the distractions, busyness, and yearnings of your own life. Spiritual Direction sessions with Rabbi Diane generally last one hour and can happen by phone or zoom.
