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!
