This summer the Jewish Yoga Network is delighted to co-sponsor Or HaLev’s Mindfulness Meditation Retreat. Daily yoga classes will be taught by Marcus J Freed, and the retreat will be led by Rabbi James Jacobson-Maisels and Rabbi Nancy Flam.

Together we will explore how the practice of meditation helps us cultivate the qualities of well-being, contentment, gratitude, forgiveness, compassion, and wisdom.

This six-day experience held in social silence includes daily instruction in meditation to guide both beginning and advanced practitioners into the sacred space of the retreat, which also incorporates daily periods of prayer and yoga. The form of weekday communal prayer consists of chanting excerpts from the liturgy, interspersed with silence, as well as space for each participant to fulfill their own prayer practice. We welcome people of all ages, all backgrounds. There will also be times for questions and answers, as well as small group and private interviews with the instructors. We will together celebrate a meaningful and joyful Shabbat.
