God’s Light is the Human Soul: Kindling the Inner Lights of Awareness
Sunday, December 15th
9:00 am – 12:30 pm
The Ba’al Shem Tov (founder of Hasidism) taught that rather than chasing away the darkness with a broom we should light a candle. This foundational message infuses the Hanukkah lights, which can serve as a beacon for dispelling inner darkness by kindling the inner lights of awareness. By developing our mindfulness to bring unconscious habits of heart and mind into the light of awareness, we can then show up in our lives in a way that shines more wisdom, compassion, love, and connection into our dark world.
Join Orot for a half-day mindfulness meditation retreat to kindle the inner lights of awareness as we prepare to celebrate Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights. No prior experience with mindfulness or Jewish learning needed.
Rabbis Lauren Henderson and Sam Feinsmith serve as faculty for this retreat.
