    Saturday, August 29, 8:30–10:00 PM and Sunday, August 30, 9:00 AM–12:00 PM

    The High Holiday season begins with the month of Elul: a call to wake up to our lives and return again to what is essential. We will be guided to experience awakened awareness and the wisdom that renews us through meditation, yoga and Qigong infused with Jewish wisdom, as well as text study, periods of silence and chanting.
