    Workshops and Residencies

    Sign up now for an intensive week-long course on Embodied prayer this summer, August 3-9, at the beautiful Isabella Freedman retreat center in Falls Village, CT. Move, stretch, and chant with traditional Jewish prayer and your own heart… check it out: http://isabellafreedman.org/embodied

    All courses can be made into two-hour introductory workshops, one day or weekend events, and 8 – 10 week courses.

    The Workshops and residencies are presented into two areas:“Arts, Education & Ethics” and “Movement, Yoga & Spirituality”

    Please discover both areas of interest below.

    Emuna ve Omenut (Faith and Art)

    Grounded in the philosophy that as we are created in the image of the Divine, we create images, through the medium of our body, which are divine.  Emuna ve Omenut focuses on the ability of each individual to reach his/her divine self through movement, music, writing, and drawing.  Using either the text of Jewish scriptures, or the texts of our own souls, we discover our own creator inside the Creator.

    Classes include movement, text study, drawing, discussion, and lots of fun.

    Manna for our Souls: Yoga, Meditation, and Judaism

    Based on the cyclical calendar of Jewish holidays and events, and the underlying ethics of both Yoga and Judaism, this class works with your body and mind, to create the space inside necessary to receive the wisdom of Torah.  Specific classes in Jewish and Yogic ethics are taught in an embodied way, as well as understanding the Jewish holidays through the medium of our bodies.

    An example:  Sukkot is a holiday where we build a temporary, fragile structure to connect to our own immortality and to nature’s abundance.  Our own bodies are temporary, fragile structures that also can bring abundance and new fruits.  We can invite the ushpizin of our ancestors into our body-sukkas to create a connection to the Divine.  For instance, Abraham and Sarah, representing hesed, can come into our bodies by doing the postures, movements, and meditations with complete care and unconditional love.

    Dancingsoul

    This class offers the absolute freedom of dancing from our souls.  Movement, improvisation, and personal or global story makes up the class that is freeing, invigorating, warming, and emotionally evocative.  We can dance out our fears, and sway in our dreams.  We can still our minds, and free our souls.
