Day-to-day news can evoke fear, anger and despair. As we act to change the external reality, we must not forget the call for internal work as well. Processing our emotions allows our external actions to be focused, compassionate and sustainable—even in today’s political climate.

In this workshop, we will study and practice an early Hasidic methodology of processing fear by setting it in the context of a relationship with God. (No prior relationship with God? A problematic relationship? That’s OK! All are welcome.) Together, through text study, silent meditation and contemplative singing, we will explore the broader Hasidic practice of “sweetening judgment.” This process, a method of transforming thoughts and emotions through contemplation, will move us forward in our work.

Lunch included.
