Jewish practice is filled with blessings, for almost every possible occasion or activity. We also bless one another. Blessings carry genuine power, and transmitting the energy of blessings makes one into a channel of awareness and goodness.
In this workshop we will learn how to be expert blessing-givers. We will experience the power of blessing: how it nurtures gratitude in the giver, and is a mindful tool for bringing us into the present moment; and we will practice the beautiful art of blessing others, giving them our best in the form of energy and loving words. We will also study the deeply meaningful structure of the traditional blessing formula
Baruch Ata Adonai Eloheinu Melech Ha’olam – Blessed are You, YHVH, our God, Sovereign of Time and Space. Properly understood, each word of that formula clarifies our intention as we bless.
