A Message from our Founder

The violence we have witnessed these past three days in Israel/Palestine, and which will continue, is horrific and unconscionable. Violence will beget more violence. These perpetual cycles of trauma, pain, and injury will only cycle forward yet again, both for all of those currently experiencing it and as downstream ripples of inherited personal and cultural trauma for generations to come. I hope these words offer some benefit, some recognition of the magnitude of what has already happened, and what is yet to come.

Day 47: Daily Omer Wellness Practice — A Story Towards Sovereignty

Daily Omer Wellness Practice 5780 Day 47: In this practice, you’ll be asked to envision this sovereign self, and then tell the story of how that came to be. For some, that may be a quite literal version of yourself as royalty. For others, royalty may be the farthest possible vision from where you see yourself ever becoming. In either case, it’s less the external vestments of this personage that matter. It’s the qualities that we embody, and the journey we’ve undergone in this process of becoming.
