Summer Adventures

I started writing a diary last night about the first week of Eva and Isabel’s life.  I kept a monthly diary for my three older children until they were Bat and Bar Mitzvah’ed noting milestones, experiences and people in their lives.  The best memories I have from keeping the diary for them are the words and ideas they came up with. Even though Eva and Isabel are not talking, it is wonderful to notice how they respond to Rita and my voice.  I have been singing to them a few verses from the Song of Songs while they were in- utero and yes, they now open eyes, look at me and ‘follow’ the sound of the song.

This summer we are offering a unique class on the 7-Up Series, seven documentaries on the life of 14 children from London and how they mature over the years. The filmmaker, Michael Apted creates a visual diary of his own as he checks in and discusses life with them every seven years. The eighth film comes out next year—as the cohort of children turns 56 years old.  What we will look at in class is how these children’s develop spirituality between age 7 and age 49, tying our observations in with important works on moral and spiritual development, including the contributions of Kabbalah to spirituality and consciousness.

This summer we are offering another film class entitled the Tikkun Puzzle; films to be reviewed and discussed have a theme of main characters rectifying each other—puzzle pieces that fit together for better (mostly).  Other special classes include Holding Opposites—a new and I predict powerful class on non-dual thought and practice, Mystics and Madmen explores the world’s most intriguing mystics, Reincarnation—a perennial favorite and a free class on mediation, The Practice of Presence.

Happy 4th of July and I hope to see you in class or sometime over the summer. For me it will be a summer filled with exciting learning and babes. Pass the suntan lotion, I mean desitin.
