Liberation, and the joy which accompanies it, is our birthright. Yet, too often we are stuck in places that feel closed and small, shut off from our natural joy, playfulness and freedom. Incorporating the profound freedom of Passover, this six-night meditation retreat will give participants concrete tools to access and open their joyful, free Divine nature and to release that which imprisons usUsing the vehicle of silence, mindfulness and a variety of Jewish meditation approaches, this retreat will help you to look deeply into life. The retreat also includes daily periods of prayer, chant and meditative movement. The form of prayer consists of chanting excerpts from the liturgy interspersed with silence. Those who follow traditional rules for davening may pray separately to fulfill their obligations. Daily instruction in meditation will help guide both beginning and advanced practitioners into the sacred space of the retreat process. Throughout the retreat, we will maintain social silence. There will also be times for questions and answers, as well as small groups and private interviews with the instructors. The week will include a deep celebration of Shabbat.
