Description

Me and You: Practicing Interpersonal Mindfulness, Cultivating Loving Connection
a half-day mindfulness retreat with Rabbi Sam Feinsmith

Sunday, May 6 - 9:30am - 12:30 pm


Those who meditate are sometimes accused of navel gazing. In fact, meditation practice can be used as an escape, a way to retreat into ourselves and avoid friction when our relationships feel challenging and unpleasant. Yet the mindfulness practices we teach at Orot are specifically designed to help us develop the skills to be more present and responsive in the face of difficulty so that we might strengthen our capacity to connect with others more lovingly. Join us on May 6th for a half-day mindfulness meditation and mindful communication retreat with Rabbi Sam Feinsmith to deepen your capacity for loving connection. We will use the intention of the 36th day of the omer count, chesed sh'b'yesod (love within connection) as the lens for our practice. The retreat includes text study and silent meditation, followed by paired mindful communication and listening exercises. No prior experience with Jewish text study or meditation required. Invite a friend, a spouse, a child (high school and up), a parent, or anyone else with whom you'd like to connect more lovingly. Or come alone and connect with new people. Remember, mindfulness is never forced. Bring people who express genuine interest to explore and grow.
