    Preparing our Hearts for Yom Kippur

    An Or HaLev and HaMakom joint project

    Yom Kippur is an opportunity for extraordinarily deep and transformative practice - if, and only if, our hearts are ready.

Grounded in Jewish mindfulness practice, this retreat will also offer daily opportunities to engage in concrete practices of deep forgivenes, loving soul searching and transformation of harmful patterns, returning to our true selves, and 

    cultivating abiding and liberating joy
