This retreat is designed and led by Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman. Participants will explore the ways in which we are all enslaved by inner and outer forces. Through Jewish mystical teachings, music and chant, meditation and mindful eating, participants will discover a liberating path forward.
On the evening of April 8th, experience a unique Earth Seder that honors our interdependence and reframes our relationship to Mother Earth based on indigenous wisdom. Participants will experience the beauty of a Passover Seder that draws Torah from the rhythms of nature and from sacred Jewish texts and traditions.
The retreat will conclude on the morning of April 9th as we journey forth from Freedom to Love. The Song of Songs is traditionally read on the Sabbath after the Passover Seder. We will step into these waters of love through a comparative look at Song of Songs and the poetry of Rumi. Group discussion, music and meditation will seal the experience.
Between sessions, participants can enjoy yoga classes and other services provided by by Kriplau.
