As we leave the last cleansing lights of Chanukah and look forward to the subtle creativity growing everywhere beneath the frozen surfaces of our world, it is time on the Jewish calendar to drop in and awaken to this quiet underground renewal. To welcome Tu b’Shevat, the “new year of the trees,” join in the contemplative mood of the waning hours of Shabbat. Moving together in embodied prayer, song, Torah, and meditative silence, we will tune into our own inner bio-rhythms and urge the body’s private capacity for health and renewal. No prior experience necessary.
Thursday, February 19th at 7:30pm
