Hillula: Ancestral Healing Rooted in Jewish Traditions
Join Daniel Foor of Ancestral Medicine and Taya Shere of Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute for an evening exploration of practices of ancestral reverence and healing rooted in Jewish traditions. We’ll discuss ways to relate safely and directly with family ancestors, both helpful guides and those still in need of assistance. Conversation will include practices of ancestor honoring based in the Hebrew Bible, rabbinic and mystic teachings, and Jewish lore across time and place.
Hillula, a Hebrew word meaning praise-celebration suggests a festive pilgrimage, often at the anniversary of death, to honor the continued influence and blessings of our great ancestral teachers. Everyone has such loving and wise ancestors among your people, and reaching out for their support can calls in personal, family and communal vitality. When rooted in the traditions of our personal lineages, engaging in practices of ancestor reverence can also bring about larger cultural healing.
We welcome participants across the spectrum of Jewish experience, including those new to Jewish practice, as well as folks new to ancestor work, adoptees and those with a tough experience of family. Evening is by donation, $25 suggested, no one turned away due to cost. Address for Rudramandir is listed above and we'll be in the Lotus room. Please plan to arrive on time and stay for the duration.
This evening is an introductory exploration which can be deepened by private sessions with the facilitators as well as through participation in trainings visioned to begin in 2017.
