Update! Mindful Preparation for the Days of Awe
A Half-Day Jewish Mindfulness Retreat
Sunday, September 25th
10am-3pm at the Heller Nature Center in Highland Park
$36 (includes lunch)
Please join us for this opportunity to deepen your practice, ask new questions, and to experience the truths of this Season of Awe in the deepest way possible. The day will include teaching on the themes of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, sitting meditation (with instruction), walking meditation (on the beautiful trails of Heller Nature Center), and study and discussion.
We are thrilled to announce that joining Jordan in facilitating the day will be: Rabbis Sam Feinsmith and Ruth Durchslag as well as master yoga teacher, Carole Caplan, who will lead us in light yoga themed for the day. No previous experience with meditation or yoga needed to participate-- so spread the word!
Unfortunately, we inadvertently scheduled this retreat at the same time as the Chicago Maot Chitim food delivery. This essential program that delivers food before the holidays to the neediest in the Chicago Jewish community is well-deserving of our support. Please consider doing a mitzvah and donating to Maot Chitim. If you are planning on delivering food for Maot Chitim and also want to attend the retreat, please let us know-- and join us when you can.
Please RSVP to Jordan by September 15 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
