Mindfulness Practices

Makom@Adat Shalom is a program initiative in contemplative Jewish life, with opportunities to participate with mindfulness practices, some Jewish, such as contemplative chant, meditation and mussar study; and some originating outside of Judaism, such as hatha yoga, silent retreat and spiritual direction.

Makom Retreat – Both on-site and off-site, retreat opportunities to learn and deepen our practices and build community. SAVE THE DATE! Join Rabbi Hazzan Rachel for a special retreat Friday April 17-Sunday April 19 at Capital Retreat Center. All are welcome for a Shabbat of shared prayer, celebration, contemplation.

Makom Meditation – Guided meditation based on the Torah portion or other Jewish gateways. Join Fran Zamore the second Saturday of each month from 11:15 am-12:15 pm for an hour-long meditation appropriate for people new to meditation, as well as experienced meditators, with time for both meditation and discussion

Makom Sacred Chanting –  Meditative and ecstatic chanting to focus on a particular phrase or verse of sacred text, utilizing both sound and silence.

Makom Yoga -offered throughout the year, in alignment with the Jewish calendar to develop our kinesthetic connection with the major spiritual themes of the year.

In December, we move into the darkest part of the year with more opportunities to bring light to ourselves and the world, nourished by our affirmation of gratitude for the many gifts we’ve been given. All are welcome Friday mornings from 9:00-10:30 AM December 6, 13, and 20 to join for this alignment-focused hatha yoga, ending with brief silent meditation.

Bring a yoga mat- all other props provided. Adat Shalom members: minimum $5 tzedakah gift to our Social action fund. Friends and Guests: $20 per class
