"All My Bones Shall Praise": Praying through Movement, Song, and Dance
Lev Shalem Institute of the Woodstock Jewish Congregation
Woodstock, NY
Share this event:


Do you long to move, to fill your lungs, to sing out, to more fully express the life that flows through you? Full-bodied, full-hearted, full-throated expression: this is a good way to pray. Sadly, prayer has become disembodied dry and incomprehensible to those who speak the words. Prayer is not a laundry list; prayer is an expression of our innermost yearnings, joys, and desire to feel connected to life within and around us!

The siddur  the prayer book  is a script, but unless we fully inhabit our role as worshippers and embody the script, it remains lifeless on the page and in our mouths. You don't have to "believe" in order to pray. The answer to our prayers is in the experience of being more fully alive. And the vehicles and vessels for our "aliveness" are these astonishing bodies that we inhabit.

In this workshop we awaken and embody our prayers and the prayers of our ancestors. Through movement and vocal exercises, improvisational scores, text study, and a sacred and safe environment, we will become a praying community, joining our energy to the chorus of life that is joyously resounding throughout the universe.  There are no prerequisites; physical limitations are not an obstacle. Our experience will be rich and joyous and will forever change your understanding of the power and purpose of prayer.

This weekend workshop meets at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation and begins with registration on Friday afternoon, followed by dinner together and ends at 12:00 pm on Sunday. Take advantage of the EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT, which ends on November 5, 2014.
