This joy fills us as water fills a well from a deep and unseen source, fills us to overflowing so that we effortlessly become sources of joy for those near to us.
In this workshop we will learn to cultivate joy. Judaism offers many teachings and opportunities to help us practice. Together we will study, eat, breathe, pray, sing, dance, meditate and reflect in ways that open us and fill us with the simple, sustaining pleasure of being alive. As Reb Nachman of Bratslav taught, “Mitzvah gedolah lih’yot b’simcha tamid!” – “It is a great mitzvah to always practice being in a state of joy!”
(This workshop was originally designed for the celebration of Sukkot, but works anytime!)
