Practicing Balance:
A Jewish Mindfulness Meditation Retreat

Life often feels off balance. Jewish spiritual practice can help us cultivate an orientation of increased balance, so that we can thrive as human beings. This primarily silent, Jewish mindfulness meditation retreat will explore the ways in which our practice can support our capacity for finding healthy equilibrium in an off-kilter world.

Led by Rabbis Jordan Bendat-Appell, Nancy Flam and Sheila Peltz Weinberg.

This retreat is ideal for those with established meditation practices, as well as for those who are beginning a mindfulness meditation practice. Our schedule on retreat will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, contemplative prayer, practice instructions and teachings that will bring the wisdom of Jewish tradition to bear on our lived experience.

Participants will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a faculty member.
