Mikdash: Personal Growth with Movement and Jewish Spirituality

Upcoming Workshop:
Embodied Soul Journey
Sunday February 16, 2020
6:30 - 8:00 pm
at 509 Bloor Street West, 2nd Floor, Twisted Yoga Studio (between Spadina & Bathurst)

In this experiential workshop we will go on a journey towards greater embodied presence and personal wellness with dance/movement therapy tools, mindfulness, and Jewish Spirituality.

  • There are no choreographed steps. Instead, we are guided to listen to the movement as it unfolds within us. In a non-judgmental space, moving mindfulness meditation will assist us in reconnecting with our bodies and extending a kind welcome towards our experience. 
  • Gently guided movement explorations and authentic movement will help us to follow our own unfolding.
  • Jewish spirituality can help us connect with the voice of the soul and with the Divine/Great Mystery we are a part of. It can also be an opportunity to find a personal embodied connection with Jewish prayer.

One thing I ask of You
I ask it with all of my heart
That I may dwell in Your House
All the days of my life.
Behold the beauty, the beauty of
Yeah and to be in that Holy Place
