Rabbi Laura Bellows’ class meets for six sessions and focuses on the days between Passover and Shavuot, known as the Omer. This is a powerful opportunity to count our days, noticing and reflecting creatively on ecological, spiritual and personal changes over this set period of uncertainty, transformation and growth.
Rabbi Bellows will use the Hasidic practice of mapping each of the seven lower sephirot (divine attributes) onto the seven weeks of the Omer, using a creative art process to reflect on and design an Omer counter for each day of the seven weeks. Drawing on the model of design thinking and maker spaces, participants will each use a pack of multimedia mini canvases, one for each day. Participants will study the sephira (attribute) for each week, reflecting on the role of that attribute in our lives, drawing on classical kabbalistic and contemporary sources to guide our learning and, ultimately, letting it inspire the next seven days of mini canvas designs.
Class time will be split between learning, discussion and dedicated time for guided art-making. Participants of all artistic backgrounds are encouraged to join us in this virtual maker space as we create a dynamic, supportive, seven-week community of learning and practice, and a unique and reusable Omer counter to guide your counting for years to come.+ More... - Less...
