A Journey of Healing Through Comfort – In Honor of Shabbat Nachamu

Wed August 14 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

One of the most important spiritual challenges we face is the need to sweeten the bitterness that is in us. Bitterness can accumulate within us, even without our knowing it, made from small or large disappointments, regrets, unhealed grief, grudges, anxieties or resentments. That bitterness forms the obstacle to fully stepping onto the Path of Love.

According to the Baal Shem Tov, here are the steps we must take in order to sweeten that bitterness.

Hachna’ah (being humbled, surrendering, Yielding)
Havdalah (discerning God’s Presence in the midst of it)
Ham’takah (Sweetening our Bitterness)

First we face and taste the bitterness within us, and are humbled by it. Then we look into that bitterness and find the seed of soul-growth. When we focus on that seed and water it with our compassion and awareness, the sweetening begins.

In this workshop of contemplative chant and sacred conversation we will take the journey through comfort from bitterness to sweetening.

This event is co-sponsored by Mount Zion Temple.
