Building Sabbatical Culture: Letting Our Hearts Lie Fallow
December 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
*Please note this program has been postponed until further notice. Stay tuned for the rescheduled date which will be announced soon.*
Join us for the 2nd session in our year-long exploration of different facets of building Sabbatical/Shmita culture during this Shmita year. In this session we’ll explore teachings for growing the inner states of mind and heart that strengthen our capacity for the outer work. We’ll engage with spiritual practices of letting go, letting be, becoming ownerless and welcoming the wild. All are welcome (the 1st session is not a prerequisite)!
This year is a special opportunity to explore ways of shaping our contemporary lives with the earth-based traditional wisdom and practices of Shmita. Each “Building Sabbatical Culture” session will engage a different focus. Upcoming sessions will include: Restorative and Regenerative Agriculture – letting the land rest, renew and reclaim wildness; Habits of Consumption – exploring what we eat, use and buy; Economic Justice – softening our grip on ownership, radical sharing and collective well-being; Building Sabbatical Communities – forging the relationships that sustain us all. You are welcome to participate in individual sessions or the entire series. You can read Rabbi Miriam’s Rosh Hashana sermon about Shmita here.
