Year of the Priestess
The Moon Circle
On the full moon we gather to honor the wisdom of each moon, to witness each other's stories and to share our own in the spirit of our matriarchs. Each month Zivar Amrami, along with circle-makers Vanessa Fried and Elyssa Ackerman and special guests, we will engage with a theme mirroring the Kabbalistic and Astrological wisdoms for the designated moon. We will do through this learning, ritual, and song. Please join us in this safe, intimate and intentional space.
Female-identifying humans of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Breathwork with Dr. Aimée Derbes
Where: Prospect Heights, Follow this link to sign up now!
….including but not limited to grief, sadness, loss however it registers for you, orphanhood, transitions of all kinds, all manner of rugs being torn from under feet, and whatever else it is that teaches you at this juncture but maybe doesn’t have a space in your everyday life / spaces / conversations. All the difficult emotions are welcomed in this group, where instead of trying to heal from the level of our thinking minds, we will rely on the breath to do the letting go for us. All the difficult emotions are welcomed in this group, where instead of trying to heal from the level of our thinking minds, we will rely on the breath to do the letting go for us.
Breathwork is an active meditation using a specific 2-part breathing pattern to connect to your body and vitality, open up space for stagnant old energy and emotions to flow freely, and expand your heart. Most (more like, all) of us are carrying around pain, fear, trauma, and outdated beliefs about ourselves and the world around us, which all live tucked away in our cells. Breathwork is a simple tool that supports us in finally shedding those heavy weights.

Torah Talk with Rabbi Zach
Where: Le Pain Quotidien, Union Square, 801 Broadway Avenue
When: November 19, 6:30 PM
Rabbi Zach will lead an informal study of the week’s Torah portion, addressing questions and intriguing sections selected by those attending. It’s best to read the portion or parts of it ahead of time, and pick out one verse, concept, or idea to examine more deeply. You can send that to Rabbi Zach ahead of time, or bring to the session itself.
All are welcome—if you’ve never read the Torah, have been hearing it recited for years without understanding, or are a veteran student of the text—come on out. The Torah is a scroll and is said to be without a beginning or an end, so come once, or come regularly. Order something to eat or drink from the café (everyone pays for their own fare) and be ready to discuss together.
