Healing the Jewish Self
Lev Shalem Institute of the Woodstock Jewish Congregation
Woodstock, NY
Share this event:

Being Jewish is glorious, maddening, enriching, burdensome, enlightening, confusing, inspiring, and depressing, sometimes all at the same time! Jews are heirs to an astonishing spiritual and cultural legacy, but that legacy is inextricably bound up with the trauma of oppression. The Holocaust, the climax and most extreme expression of anti-Semitism, was a concerted and nearly effective attempt to annihilate the Jews, and the trauma of that collective experience, as well as previous horrors, still resides, often unconsciously, in our psyches, our muscles, and our bones.

"Healing the Jewish Self" addresses these internalized effects of anti-Semitism. As American Jews, we live in a place and moment in which the immediate threat of anti-Semitic discrimination and violence is mostly dormant, but unconscious fears can continue to warp many of our relationships to our Jewish identities, our bodies, the Jewish community, Israel, and the world as a whole. However, we can shed significant light and healing on our wounded Jewish psyches. We can reorient our relationship to our Jewish identities in a way that makes us creative actors rather than unaware reactors to being Jewish. Judaism and Jewish identity can become a source of creative inspiration and guidance, but only if we are willing to confront the pain and fear that are inextricably bound up with the legacy of a being a Jew.

In this transformative workshop, through lecture and discussion, interpersonal sharing, spiritual teaching from the Jewish tradition, visualization, creative movement, and song, participants can explore their relationship to Judaism in a safe, confidential, and "judgment-free" environment. By identifying and exploring the negative stereotypes we have absorbed as Jews, we will grow in love and compassion for ourselves and for one another. We will also gain new insight into relationships between Jewish men and women, the character of Jewish communities, the relationship of the State of Israel to the world, and even the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

This weekend workshop meets at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation. It begins with registration late Friday afternoon, followed by dinner together and ends at 2:00 pm on Sunday. Take advantage of the EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT, which ends on October 8, 2014.
