Seventy Tongues: Shavuot & Pentecost
Amichai Lau-Lavie & Rev. Kimberleigh Jordan, Ph.D
The two holidays that mark Revelation on the Jewish and Christian calendars coincide this year, inviting us to explore our common themes of mystery and meaning. Rev. Kimberleigh Jordan joins Amichai Lau-Lavie for an interactive study session and conversation about spiritual and civic bridge building – the power of pluralism, diversity, and interfaith co-existence in making this world a better place for all.
Buzz the Vocal Chords, Buzz the Soul
Musical meditation and the Jewish Mantra. Using mystical and liturgical sources as a starting point, we will explore meaning and practice through the medium of the musical soul. Sacred Jewish geometry, the laws of vibration, toning, sound healing, and Kirtan chanting.
She Opens a Tiny Door: Zohar for the Night of Shavuot
The Zohar, Judaism’s central mystical work, blends stories and secrets that seduce the soul to wake up to life’s real mysteries. Amichai Lau-Lavie unpacks one of the core Zoharic parables, perfect for the night of Revelation, as a user friendly tool for anyone who wants to learn about the art of undressing reality in four simple steps.
Fallow Lab Study Salon
Inspired by the Jewish Shmita tradition, Fallow Lab reinterprets the biblical agricultural practice of a year of release for today’s social, economic and digital reality. Our ancestors worked the land, lived its cycles and knew when to let go, release and renew. Can we extend the logic of the old sacred cycles and recycle Shmita back into our lives.
