Shabbrunch: Sacred Rejuvenation Mini Retreat

  • The Chanda Lair Arion Place Brooklyn, NY, 11206 United States (map)

Sink into your weekend with the ultimate ancient ritual guaranteed to get you relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to shine as your highest self.

Why Shabbrunch?

Leave the drama at the door, and sink into a sensuous experience of delight. Learn to experience the moment through mindfulness meditation and chant, and feast on a nourishing Shabbat brunch.

Let your anxieties and fears be gone, and equip yourself with tools for the week ahead, by discovering ancient sacred text with lessons for life through storytelling and discussion.

Reenter your highest self with a meditation-based movement experience, dancing our way into the peak of our restful selves.

This mini-retreat will focus on showcasing tools and methods for living a more stress-free life in deep presence. With a mix of meditation, chanting, movement and sacred text study, we'll explore the various aspects of Shabbat/Sabbath/Shabbos as a chance for connecting with our own truth outside of the noise of daily life.

"The meaning of the Sabbath is to celebrate time rather than space... on the Sabbath we try to become attuned to holiness in time. It is a day on which we are called upon to share in what is eternal in time, to turn from the results of creation to the mystery of creation..." - ABRAHAM JOSHUA HESCHEL

This event has been generously subsidized by Moishe House Without Walls and UJA ArtsXBrooklyn. Investment includes meditation, study, movement and nourishing brunch. Email the organizers for partial scholarship and work-trade options.
