“Remember that the meaning of life is to live life as if it were a work of art”

(Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel).

 

Join us for this special Jewish program with internationally renowned artist, spiritual director and psychotherapist, Carola de Vries Robles. In this workshop we will view her moving documentary film, ‘To Remember To Return.’ The film shows how she brings art and soul into the tragedies of life. Her personal story opens us to our own unique yet universal human story. The film shows how she turns a legacy of loss, pain, unattended sorrow, and anger, into reconnecting with the Source. This connection enables to abide in and cultivate unconditional love, compassion, and joy.

Through the use of Jewish spiritual teachings, meditation, movement and expressive arts we will practice the art of shifting from fear to love. We learn to move from resisting pain and shame. Instead of staying stuck in old patterns of identifying with our pain, (or running from it), we learn to turn toward challenging emotions. By embracing them, we ‘re-member’ and ‘re-turn’to our full selves. When we can face and bless all that is, we can allow our beauty and soul strength to emerge.  As Reb Zalman Schachter Shalomi teaches  “We will ‘re-contextualize’ the past, bringing our souls to more light and wholeness; for ourselves and the planet.”

In this workshop we will:

  • Learn to create new understandings of our painful stories.
  • Learn to re contextualize and release the past.
  • Bring light into dark areas of our lives. Opening the gates of the Heart.
  • Use the power of ‘Jewish’ Time as found in Lag b’Omer to celebrate Life.

 

Join with us in deep listening, connecting with our bodies, and drawing out the soul.
