Reminder: GPS for Your Inner Landscape: The Shore is happening this Monday, June 24th.Please register on Zoom (ℹ️7:30pm ET / 4:30pm PT⬇️) LOCATION: Zoom 🔗⬇️Join Rabbi Julie Hilton Danan to connect to your soul by connecting to the beauty of the natural world and Jewish wisdom about nature. Just as the earth has her seas, gardens, rivers, and mountains, inside each of us is our sea of the unconscious, our garden of toil and pleasure, our streams of flow, and our peak experiences. Our inner world is a reflection of the planet and of ancient teachings left for us by our ancestors.In this interactive class, we will explore “the shore” in nature, Jewish wisdom, and your own life; from sea caves to sand, seashells, and life on the edge of mystery. We will experience media including stunning original nature photography, text discussion, ritual, guided meditation and mitzvah ideas. The practices we will learn may lead not only to a richer inner life and a heightened sense of awe, but to a deepened commitment to stewardship of the Earth and its inhabitants as the dwelling place of Shechinah. 💡Register here: aleph.org/civicrm/event/register/?reset=1&id=554 ...
