An Oasis in Time
A Spiritual Retreat with Rabbi Diane Elliot
Hadassah of Baton Rouge
Friday January 26 6:30-9 pm
Saturday January 27 10 am-4 pm
Sunday January 28 10 am-1 pm
Enjoy a weekend of pausing and inner listening, a time of true refreshment for body, soul and mind. As the cares of the week sink into the background of consciousness, we will cultivate the oft-neglected, essential practices of rest, calm, delight and communal enjoyment. People of any or no faith are welcome.
Friday: A shared meal, framed by simple ritual, song and contemplation, will serve as the gateway to an oasis in time, known in Jewish tradition as “Shabbat,” a time of “ceasing” or release.
Saturday: Flow into a full day of nurturance, expressing our deepest soul yearnings through stillness and movement, chanting and silence, shared conversation and art-making.
Sunday: Enjoy an introduction to the ancient Kabbalis-tic practice of counting the Omer. Reading from her recently published-book, This Is the Day, Ha-Yom Yom, Rabbi Elliot will guide participants in exploring qualities of heart and soul.
3-Day Price $70
Friday Only (includes dinner) $25
