Shabbat for Women: Spirituality, Mussar, and Havdallah

Loving hands
In the tradition of Jewish women gathering in community,
We invite you to join us at Solel for this women’s-circle, a Jewish spiritual gathering created by women just for women, is a sacred space for personal exploration in the context of community and sisterhood.
It’s open to adult Jewish women of all ages.
What to expect:

  • An introduction to Mussar (the fascinating ancient Jewish practice of personal spiritual awareness).
  • Insight into the Mussar teachings that we are all living a “specific personal curriculum.”
  • A Jewish consideration of the notion that we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

Because Mussar is meant to be a practice that integrates intellect with heart and soul, we’ll practice some relaxing guided meditation in the Mussar tradition, and we’ll conclude with a Havdallah service. Bring: a journal or notebook, and your spirit for heart-full exploration.

About the facilitator, Lisa Morris Miller:
Lisa is an original Solenik, excited about “coming home” to lead a Mussar retreat in her original favourite Jewish community. As a mind-body health specialist trained in inter-faith chaplaincy and certified in a variety of therapeutic modalities, she is especially passionate about women’s health as it relates to spiritual, physical, and emotional wellness. Lisa has been a Mussar Group Facilitator since 2011, leading workshops and retreats in the U.S. LisaMillerBeautifulDay.com.
Pre Registration a Must. You can download the Registration Form or contact the Solel office to register no later than June 12. The cost is $36 including the workshop, havdallah and dinner.
