Would you like to experience how your spiritual and psychological selves are companions on the same journey? I offer workshops that combine my experience as an Expressive Arts therapist and a Morah L’Hitbodidut/Jewish Meditation teacher.
Many of us traveling a conscious spiritual path are filled with longings and questions. We want to navigate our daily life with guidance from our spiritual Center. Chanting creates a doorway through which our consciousness can travel into the realm of Spirit. Meditating in this space can be profound, opening us to the hopes and fears in our hearts. Our unresolved issues may surface. In many settings where we chant and meditate, the structure does not allow for engaging in individual or group reflection on what arises.
Heart and Soul
In the Heart and Soul workshop, we combine contemporary Hebrew chanting with suggested and self-directed meditations. Using expressive arts therapy, which may include drawing, clay, movement or writing, we will explore what we’ve experienced, with a focus on spiritual and psychological yearnings, questions, discoveries and healing.
The Shechina can be thought of as the presence of the Divine Source in our material world (among many interpretations). In the Shechina workshops, we explore how we can experience this through body, meditation and sound, as we focus on different aspects of Divine energy. I lead you on a personal, internal exploration of and encounter with the Shechina that is our animating core. We use a special breathing and visualization practice to enhance our awareness of and connection with this Source. Participants then have time to deepen and express their experience through the use of expressive arts.
The workshops are from 10 – 4 on a weekend day. Groups are no larger than eight participants to allow time for individual processing. No prior knowledge of meditation, Jewish spirituality, singing or art ability is required in these safe, encouraging and accepting settings.

I am excited by and grateful for the delighted blossoming of participants’ hearts that occurs in these workshops!
