Special Wilderness Encounter for the Days of Awe
Prepare for Yom Kippur with focused time in nature to reflect, forgive and pray. During this special Wilderness Encounter, we explore the Jewish tradition of Teshuvah ,or spiritual return, on how time in nature can help us realign our soul for the spiritual new year. We will explore spiritual practices including Tashlich (“casting off”), where we release bad energy from the year, and Hitbodedut, focalized prayer in nature, where we commune with directly with the Source to gain access and express our deepest prayers.
Join Maggid Zelig in the woods during the powerful Days of Awe!
What’s Panim El Panim?
Panim El Panim (Face to Face) is a daylong outdoor journey offering you solo time in nature as well as guided group integration to help you deepen your connection to nature and yourself.
Join us for a day’s journey upon the face of the earth, a ceremony of preparation, a pilgrimage through the mirror of nature. It presents a unique opportunity to delve into the realms of connection, reflection and revelation. Framed by the teachings of the Four Winds Medicine Wheel and Jewish tales and teachings about bringing in vision and marking change, Panim El Panim calls on the power of intention, listening, witnessing and solo time, all held in an intimate group. Show up fully; listen deeply; let nature speak and transform your life.
The group is limited to 10 people. Registration Deadline for the June program is September 12th.
