Living in Alignment with Cycles and Seasons

Join Spirit of Sophia,The Women's Spirituality Center of Louisville, for this special event!

How do we find the time to pause and take stock when life moves so fast around us? How do we make time for our own spiritual and creative practice when there are so many other responsibilities competing for our time and energy? These are the questions we’ll answer at this special afternoon retreat. In this session, Rabbi Sarah Tasman will teach us how to integrate more intentionality and meaning into our lives through our awareness of the seasons and cycles of the calendar. Participants will learn about the spiritual practice of living in alignment with the seasons, the moon cycle and yearly calendar. Participants will also experience Rosh Chodesh, the Jewish ritual of welcoming the new moon and blessing the new month. With meditation, discussion, art and ritual, we will also focus on the upcoming month of Kislev which is a month of cultivating sleep and dreams.

Sunday, November 24th

2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

St. Matthew’s Episcopal Clingman Chapel

330 N. Hubbards Lane, Louisville, KY 40207


WellBodies: A Monthly Course in Embodied Judaism

WellBodies is a new monthly program of the Adas Israel Community Mikvah, and while it is rooted in the ethos of the Mikvah, it is not about Mikvah, per se. What does it mean to live in your body? What does it mean to live in a Jewish body? Explore the concept of the body from a Jewish perspective with us once a month from September 2019 through June 2020. This two hour circle will delve into body-related topics such as healthy boundaries, food and eating, growth and aging—through the lens of Jewish text and ritual. We’ll learn from each other and from guest facilitators’ unique perspectives. Presenters include Jodi Balis, Yael Flusberg, Rabbi Sarah Tasman, Rabbi Lauren Tuchman, Toni Bickart, and other wonderful thinkers. If you are a doctor, nurse, therapist, yogi, massage therapist, you will get a lot out of this and have a lot to contribute. And, everyone is welcome--all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Join us--all you need is your body!
