Deep Listening Through the Psalms May 5, May, 19, June 2 9:30-11:30am @Congregation B'nai Israel, 253 Prospect Street, Northampton, MA (You do not have to have any spiritual affiliation of any kind to participate. All are welcome!)
What happens at the intersection of word and creativity? We aren't talking "arts and crafts" here but deeply meaningful spiritual practice. This 3-series gathering is an invitation to explore and to listen to what is going on within our inner geography and our outer world, responding in ways that transcend the limitations of what we think we know. The Psalms provide the foundation; a variety of materials, both sensory and expressive, offer surprising and expansive encounter through creative midrash. Don't let the word "creative" scare you off; your open and attentive presence is all that is necessary.
We will be guided by CBI author Edward Feld’s book Joy, Despair and Hope, Reading Palms.
We hope you will plan to attend all three sessions. In the event that you cannot, you are welcome to attend one or more. Each session is $30 (includes materials); scholarship funding is available for members of CBI. May 5 Psalm of Joy May 19 Psalm of Despair June 2nd Psalm of Hope
