Sacred Listening Circle

Many in the community are having strong feelings about the elections.  There are many people who have expressed to me that they are literally grieving, or anxious, or depressed.  I am sure that there are also some who are hopeful about the changes to come.  

 

Glancing through my emails and Facebook, one friend has suggested giving ourselves a day of grief and mourning, as in a shiva.  Others have quoted Rebbe Nachman of Bratslov's teachings about never giving in to despair.  Another friend sugguested that we re-double our commitment to our values by by giving to causes and organizations that promote our values, such as those that engage in healh-care in minority communities or assist needy immigrant families.  

 

I am calling a "Sacred Listening Circle" for this coming Friday, at the start of our Shabbat gathering.  (7:45 pm at the Vets Hall, 846 Front Street in downtown Santa Cruz).  This will give us a time to be together, to share what is on our hearts and to truly listen to each other, as we find our way through this new reality.  

 

B'shalom, 

Rabbi Eli
