Breathing, meditation & a guided walk around your neighborhood.
For the Sin of Forgetting to Breathe Al Chet Lishcoach Linshom...
The Talmud teaches the center of the body is the nose, the home of our breath (Sotah 45b). In this class, we'll use gentle movement to return to the breath, helping to seal ourselves in the Book of Life. With Yaakov Ginsberg-Schreck, Director of Breath Lab and Rabbinical Student at Hebrew College.
For Entering Places of Forgiveness...Awe + Audio Tour with Rabbi Jessica Kate Meyer & Rabbi Noa Kushner(The Kitchen)
What is it? A DIY “tour” or passage through moments of the high holidays designed just for this strange and difficult year. We imagine you walking in your neighborhood, listening, using these stations as guides of where to go.
There will be eight stations, each one offering a prayer and / or a short written reflection. (Each station is about 4-7 minutes).
While we designed the stations to work sequentially, and experience at one time, you can also break them up and / or go out of order (although we insist: 8 should be last).
32 - 56 minutes + walk time.
For Exploring the Plea for Forgiveness Not Because We Are Bad, but Because We Are Human...Forgive Us, For We Are Human: A Contemplative Exploration of theAl Chet Prayer
In this contemplative take on the Al Chet prayer, Dr. C. Tova Markenson guides a mindful exploration of the areas of the body that Al Chet references (the eyes, mouth, and heart). By inviting chesed (kindness) in through the body, listeners are invited to try out a gentle form of forgiveness practice. Audio only, for those who don't want to be in front of a screen. (Music: Daniel Kieval, "Kaveh" from Elul: Songs for Turning)
