Repair of the Soul Tikkun HaNefesh תיקון הנפש
|Spiritual Guidance & Shema-nik Healing||
Listening for the Sacred Shomei-a BaRuach שומע ברוח
(Listening with the soul / Hearing in the wind)
Led by Rachmiel Langer with Rosalie Gerut
“When God comes close, all the trees of the forest shout for joy.”
Tu BiShvat is the New Year for the Trees. Come join us for a Kabbalistic seder as we celebrate the wisdom of the trees and the renewal of the divine energy that flows into this world through the mystical Tree of Life, with its roots in heaven; we are the fruit.
We'll drink wine and eat different fruits and nuts - some with tough shells, ripe interiors, or with a pit at the core - each signifying the mystical worlds perceptible through the body, heart, mind, and spirit.
Eating is a sanctifying act that releases the sparks of holiness from within the fruit and within us.
Come read the story, sing and pray, eat and release the sparks!
This is the seder that Rachmiel led when the Kerem Shalom delegation celebrated with the Jewish community in Cienfuegos, Cuba last year, so the readings are available in Spanish, too.
¡Una celebracion de los árboles!
"There is hope for a tree; If it is cut down it will renew itself; its shoots will not cease. If its roots are old in the earth, and its stump dies in the ground, at the scent of water it will bud. And produce branches like a sapling."
