The Jewish calendar follows the moon cycle so at the beginning of each month, womxn all over the world get together to mark that moment. We welcome all who feel they belong in a Jewish-woman’s space, regardless of sex assigned at birth, gender expression, religious history or practice (thanks to Wominyan for this definition).
The month of Shevat is a month to draw the Divine in for one last winter cuddle and begin making moves to manifest all the work we’ve done in the past few months on inner, hidden planes. Tu B’Shevat, “The Birthday of the Trees,” arrives on the FULL moon of this month. For Jews, Tu B’Shevat is one of the most spiritual and joyous times of the year. On this day, we express gratitude for the trees, some of the oldest life forms on the planet. Stand in awe of their silent, tranquil existence, marvel at their beauty, and tune into the magnitude of their life-sustaining power.
This session will be led by Fellowship alum Danielle Brief of HamsaMade. We will enjoy some mindfulness, ritual, light learning with At The Well’s excellent resources, and small group discussions in breakout rooms.
