Enchanted Circle with Rabbi Shefa Gold

Chanting, the repetition of a sacred phrase, is an ecstatic form of meditation that can open the doors of the heart, clear the mind of clutter, focus and refine intentions, and connect us to each other. The chant can attune us to ever-deepening levels of meaning, unlock the treasures of the heart, and give us an opportunity to generously serve each other.  By entering into silence after a chant, we can receive both the Divine influx and the gifts that bubble up from the soul. In this evening of chant we will taste and experience the power and potential of this ecstatic practice. 

Led this month by Kol Zimra alumni; Shefa will return to the Enchanted Circle in May.

Chanting Kabbalat Shabbat

A Chanting Kabbalat Shabbat service one Friday evening a month (usually the fourth Friday) provides a contemplative way to greet Shabbat through sacred Hebrew chanting and meditation. Celebrate the end of your week, nourish your soul and welcome Shabbat. Join us as we move into holy space/time in a meditative mode: chanting sacred phrases and melodies and then melting into silence. No prior knowledge or special talent is necessary, only the willingness and intention to go inside yourself, to listen deeply and to be in community with others who are engaged in this practice. Led by Judy Brown and Sofie Shefia Stephanie Cohen.  We meet at 7:30pm in Bayt B'racha, the building on the north side of the courtyard.
