This full-day retreat will allow space for connection with community, personal intention-setting, and time in nature, as well as deep musical prayer, some gentle movement practice, and a shofar service.

Come set a course for the year ahead.


Through musical prayer, movement exploration, spiritual reflection, heart sharing, shofar, meditation and time in nature, this Rosh HaShanah our sacred container will allow us to dive deep.

As we tune into our authentic selves, the next steps often begin to appear. What are we being called to now, in service to our communities and the unfolding of our own sacred paths?

Together let’s welcome in this next adventure with a day of healing, transformation and joy.
