reFresh your spirit ~
reAwaken your purpose ~
reNew your whole self
Join Rabbis Diane Elliot and Shefa Gold, with Rachmiel O’Regan, Adam Horowitz, and David Bronstein for an intimate and soul-nourishing Teshuvah/Yom Kippur retreat under the expansive skies of New Mexico!
This year, the Jewish calendar affords us a particularly potent trajectory, with Shabbat Shuvah (the Shabbat of Return) taking place the very day before Erev Yom Kippur. Through chant, prayer, movement, meditation, and connection with the land, we’ll trace that journey together, traveling from the silent depths to the ecstatic expanses, attuning to the turnings of our own lives, and creating conditions for deep listening and joyful at-one-ment. If you’ve been yearning for a spacious and nourishing container for rebirth and reconnection with mystery, consider joining us—and the piñon, juniper, and ponderosa pine—to begin the new year of 5784 with this desert journey to the holy of holies. Register early, as the group size will be limited to 18!
This retreat is filling fast!

Prepare for Shabbat through chant, movement, and healing prayers – designed to calm the body-mind 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.
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.
