A Workshop with Estelle Frankel at JRC

Spiritual Preparation for the New Year

A Workshop with Estelle Frankel

 Co-Sponsored by Beth Emet Synagogue and Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation

 The Jewish New Year is a special time for healing the soul.  According to the Kabbalah, it is a time of spiritual pregnancy, when we have the power to re-imagine and refashion our lives.  The High Holiday liturgy reminds us that our days on earth are finite, and that to be fully alive--in the spiritual sense--we must continually turn and return to the Source of Life.  This theme is echoed in many of the rituals and scriptural readings for the High Holidays, which are saturated with images of births and new life.  Through contemplative study, guided meditation, chant and text study we will reflect on what gives us "life," as we fine-tune our spiritual direction and sacred intentions for the coming year.

Estelle Frankel, MFT is a practicing psychotherapist, spiritual advisor, and Rabbinic Pastor (Mashpiah-Maggidah) who blends the healing wisdom and spiritual practices of Kabbalah with insights from depth psychology. She is a seasoned spiritual teacher who has taught innovative programs in Jewish studies for over 30 years, and is currently on the teaching faculty of Chochmat HaLev Center for Jewish Spirituality in Berkeley, Ca.  Estelle offers continuing education courses for therapists on Kabbalah as Sacred Psychology and lectures widely on the interface of psychology and spirituality.  She has published numerous essays on psychology and Jewish mysticism, and is the author of the award winning book, Sacred Therapy:  Jewish Spiritual Teachings on Emotional Healing and Inner Wholeness.
