Presentations, Workshops, Seminars, and Retreats
I am very excited to let you know that I have been selected as an Artist-in-Residence at the 2013 Summer Institute sponsored by the National Havurah Committee. The Institute takes place August 5-11, 2013, at Franklin Pierce College in Rindge, New Hampshire.
The theme of the 2013 Institute is "Limnot Yameinu / Count our Days." I will be offering a week-long course called "The Art of Teshuvah: A Mandala/Shiviti Practice." Here's a description:
Through chevruta text study, discussion, journaling, meditation, and hands-on artmaking, participants will explore the concept of teshuvah from a variety of perspectives and levels. The class is designed to enable participants to go deep within themselves, based on self-generated kavannah. The artist-in-residence will teach the mandala process, which entails drawing within the form of a circle using colored pencils on black paper. By the end of the course, participants will have created several luminous, radiant images that reflect their own sacred center and developed a spiritual practice that they can use in their daily lives.
I'll also be offering activities for the entire Institute Community (including a special activity for children in attendance). I would love to see you there!
