Monthly spiritual discussion group at CBI

soul circle soul proprietor 25Starting in late June, a spiritual discussion group will meet at CBI, once a month, on a Friday afternoon at 3pm. This group is growing out of the weekly spiritual discussion group which took place at CBI during the Counting of the Omer, but is not limited to those who participated in that group. All are welcome to join!

Unlike the Omer group, which functioned on a drop-in basis, this is envisioned as a group of people who are interested in meeting regularly together to talk about spiritual life and to do some learning. We ask that participants sign up in advance, so that over the course of the year we can build closer relationships and rapport among the participants, which will in turn deepen our conversations.

At each meeting we’ll explore a text together — perhaps part of the Torah portion, to see how and whether it speaks to our own spiritual journeys; perhaps a Hasidic or Kabbalistic (mystical) text about an upcoming holiday; perhaps a Mussar (ethical self-improvement) text — and we’ll also talk about our spiritual lives as they continue to unfold. No previous experience with any Jewish subject matter is required.

Here are the dates for the next several months:

June 27
July 18
August 29
September 19
October 17
November 21
December 19

Each date is a Friday; we’ll meet at CBI at 3pm in my office.

I know that we all have busy lives and that any individual participant may not be able to make it to every session; that’s okay! If this is something in which you are interested, please sign up by June 25 so I know how many copies to prepare for our first meeting.

Wishing you blessings for a Shabbat shalom,

Rabbi Rachel
