For many, the journey from Liberation to Revelation between Passover and Shavuot is held wonderfully by daily counting the Omer. For others, finding meaning during these seven weeks is more elusive. 

The liberation we glimpse during Passover is often supported by community, prayer, altered eating habits and/or a dollop of intention, reflection, and spiritual practice. But these 7 weeks can be a more solitary trek, and it can be challenging to complete in splendid isolation. Especially in a time when extreme discourse puts us at odds with those we want to connect with. How can we discern and open to receive what is true, what is right, what is holy?

If you yearn for a beautiful community of thoughtful seekers to support you on this season’s path, please join us! Teachings from a kabbalistic reading of the Omer, the weekly Torah portion, guided meditation, midrash, mystical commentary, and spiritual friendship will be our companions. We will meet on the first evening of Shavuot in deep ritual space AND go beyond Shavuot for a session to integrate all we have gleaned.
