"The Way of Creation" Havdalah Program & Creativity Workshop (postponed until further notice)

November 11, 2017 - 6:00pm

THIS EVENT WILL NOT BE HELD ON SEPTEMBER 9
Postponed until further notice.

The workshop will be led by activist-artist and WES member Joshua (Greenberg) Wight, inspired by his own work with Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way" guide to creativity, which he will be adapting to Jewish themes and Reconstructionist concepts and values.

Each session will begin with a short mindfulness exercise to share the final moments of Shabbat's perfect rest together before making Havdalah as a group to mark the distinction for renewing our work as G-d's partners in Creation/Creating/Creativity.

The kavanah, or guiding intention, of this work is that the path to Tikkun Olam, fixing the world, is through Refuah HaNefesh, the individual healing of the Self and our relationships in community, by creative actions of re/connection.


The Program and Workshop are open to the public.  Please bring a fresh notebook and a comfortable pen to the first session.  Note that regular involvement from the first session is recommended, but drop-in participants will be welcomed.

**The March session will be held on the Third Saturday of that month (March 18th).
