Instructor: Melanie Gruenwald or Rabbi Jamie Arnold

Who Are You?: In this first semester of Inner Transformation you are challenged to strip away your previous understandings of who you are and explore the relationship between your outer selves, inner selves and your essence. The Kabbalah teachings have a profound interest in revealing the masks (ie. selves, identifications, roles), you wear to ensure that you can answer the question: Are you wearing the mask or is the mask wearing you? What was oblivious now becomes obvious.

Base of Awareness: Returning to the Tree of Life we learn the Kabbalistic practices of awareness (Base, Core and Subtle). Base of Awareness focuses on four practices connected to the four lower Sefirot on the Tree of Life: The most basic awareness is mirror awareness- the practice of paying attention to what shows up in our life (Malchut). The second awareness is being present, which includes fully integrating both past and future in this moment (Yesod). The next practices of awareness help us to find balance between acceptance for what is (Hod) and the pursuit of our intentions, what can be (Netzach).

Contemporary Kabbalah - The 2020 Shakeup: In the year 1290 Moses de Leon, author of the Zohar, penned a remarkable foretelling of humanity’s progression in consciousness. He highlighted that there would be leaps every 60 years—from 1900 to 1960 to 2020. We will look at text, film, art, and music to discover the underlying metaphors hidden in what we see currently manifesting. After the shakeup, how might humanity reorganize so that all can freely breathe? What role will you play in this unfolding of the human story?

Tikkun Olam: How do we put into practice the vision of a greater consciousness put forward by the Kabbalists? Tikkun Olam- the repair of the world- assumes that there is a need to address the imbalances created by the human narrative and actualize social change. We will look at those who are advocating and implementing change globally and locally which inspire us to commit to changes we can make in our lives- individually, with family, and in our communities.

○ One Day Workshops

Walking with Grief: A Mini-retreat-like experience with others who are experiencing loss

Note:  There are two separate mini-retreats on personal grief and collective grief.  You can attend one of these or both.

Session 1: Breaking Open our Hearts – Learning to Walk with Personal Grief

Oct 8, 9am - 1pm MST

We are remade in times of grief, broken apart and reassembled.”  ~ Francis Wheeler

Where do you stand in your own Tragic Gap of who you were and who you are becoming?   We will explore how to make our way through the “Silent Lonely Void”.  Reb Zalman taught that this is a place we each “crawl into . . . in order to just let your wounds be alone….because you can’t stand to be around and be vulnerable.  But being invulnerable also means not to be in contact.”  Using Kabbalah teachings, Nonviolent Communication and Courage & Renewal Practices, you will experience a safe & trustworthy space to explore your own questions without having to find “the” answer.  

Session 2: Breaking Open our Hearts to Each Other – Collective Grief of our Times

Oct 15, 9am - 1pm MST

"There is nothing more whole than a broken heart.  If your own suffering does not serve to unite you with the suffering of others, if your own imprisonment does not join you with others in prison, if you in your smallness remain alone, then your pain will have been for naught.”    Chassidic Kotzker Rebbe

Join us as we walk the “dark places” together . . . to explore and be honest in your emotions, trusting that whatever arises, you will be able to hold it within our “zoom circle”.   Trusting our interconnectedness with the Great Mystery and each other, this will be an opportunity for you to bring your larger pains for the world, any losses that you have experienced, and the suffering & inequities you have witnessed during this pandemic.  Using Courage & Renewal practices and principles, we will create a safe and trustworthy container to explore our collective grief.
