Planting our Seeds, Planting our Souls: Meditations and Practices through the Omer
March 30 @ 12:00 pm - May 11 @ 1:00 pm UTC-5
Tuesdays, 3/30, 4/6, 4/13, 4/20, 4/27, 5/4, and 5/11
The first and last sessions will be from 12:00pm to 1:30pm EST. All others are from 12:00pm to 1:00pm EST.
The period of the Omer has both agricultural and spiritual significance in the Jewish calendar. In the land of Israel, it connects the barley harvest of Passover to the wheat harvest during Shavuot, and provides a sign of prosperity for the coming year. It’s also a time of refinement and preparation as each year we leave our own personal enslavement in Egypt to meet the Holy One at the mountain on Shavuot.
Over the course of seven weekly sessions, Rabbi Robin Damsky of Limitless Judaism connects the Kabbalistic practice of Omer meditations — meant to refine our bodies and our spirits– with the cycle of the seasons and Earth-based roots of this period. She will facilitate a spiritual journey using meditation, melody, movement, agricultural practice, and study of selected complementary texts.
We invite you to join us regardless of your experience with meditation or text study. This journey is designed as a seven part series and you are welcome to join any or all of it. We will plant seeds together during the first and the last session. If you register after March 22nd, you can request seeds from Limitless Judaism to plant but they may not arrive until after the first session.
Rabbi Robin Damsky, identified by Kenissa (kenissa.org), as an innovator redefining Jewish life, has just launched Limitless Judaism, her new online project of learning, earth planting and tending, movement, meditation, and melody in practice that draws the lines of connection between our physical bodies, our spiritual expression and Gaia, our earth-cosmos. Embracing this connection, we heal and grow ourselves as we heal and grow our planet. For more information about Limitless Judaism, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Robin is also the founder and director of In the Gardens, a nonprofit that enhances personal and planetary well-being through organic, edible garden design, mindfulness practice and the Mindful Gardens Project ℠.
