The Wisdom of Beauty
Guest Price: $325.00
Join us for “an intimate look at an essential quality” drawing upon wisdom from Kabbalah, Musar, and more. What is Beauty? What role does beauty play in my life? Where can beauty be found and how can it be lived?
Together, in a series of seven conversations and experiential workshops with author-artist, J. Ruth Gendler, and rabbi-musician, Jamie Arnold, we’ll grow our capacity look and listen, draft and craft a life that celebrates and embodies beauty in words and symbols, melodies and harmonies, images and experiences.
This class is held weekly:
- Wednesday 10:30-11:45am (beginning July 8- Aug 19)
Instructors: Rabbi Jamie Arnold and J. Ruth Gendler
