Daily Omer Wellness Practice 5780 Day 42: As we close our week of Yesod — connection — today we bring in Malkhut, sovereignty and groundedness, with a practice focusing on our own tree of life: on the roots that nourish and sustain us, the branches that allow us to reach for new places and new energy, and the core that holds it together, providing stability and resilience.
Daily Omer Wellness Practice 5780 Day 41: Today we bring our focus to strengthening foundation and connection for our practice of Yesod within Yesod. We’ll start in mountain pose, focusing on bringing our bodies into alignment, stacked and strong; then move into a seated meditation pose, looking for a similar sense of alignment and strength.
Daily Omer Wellness Practice 5780 Day 40: Today, we channel Noah and his family after the flood and our wandering Israelite ancestors by taking a walk outside. Barefoot.
Daily Omer Wellness Practice 5780 Day 39: This week of the Omer, Yesod, is of course all about connection. For today’s practice of Netzach (endurance) within Yesod, Ben Becker offers a practice to help us maintain the endurance needed for continuing to stay connected through a lovely practice that we hope you won’t just phone in … but actually mail in.

Daily Omer Wellness Practice 5780 Day 36: Today we begin our penultimate week of Yesod — foundation and connection. As with every week, we begin with the sub-sefirah of Chesed, lovingkindness, which is definitely at the foundation of strong connection and relationship. Today's practice is contributed by Catherine Bell.
Daily Omer Wellness Practice 5780 Day 35: Today is all about sovereignty and splendor — Malkhut within Hod — feeling *really good* in your own body. When monarchs hold court, they take on the accoutrement of sovereignty and splendor. Beautiful, gleaming clothing that delights the eyes, perfumes to delight the nose, jewelry and bells to delight the ears. Crowns to signify height and stature. We dunno about you but we sure have been wearing a *lot* of the same sweatpants-sweatshirt combo lately. But we are now on the other side of Lag b’Omer and this is finally a Treat Yo’ Self Day.
Daily Omer Wellness Practice 5780 Day 34: In the spirit of Yesod (connection/foundation), one and two weeks ago we spent time working on our hands and feet as important connection points to the ground. This week for Yesod within Hod (humility) we’ll get down low to spend time on *both* our hands and feet, engaging with the ground as our movement partner ...
