The period of the Omer has both agricultural and spiritual significance in the Jewish calendar. In the land of Israel, it connects the barley harvest of Passover to the wheat harvest during Shavuot, and provides a sign of prosperity for the coming year. It’s also a time of refinement and preparation as each year we leave our own personal enslavement in Egypt to meet the Holy One at the mountain on Shavuot.
In this series, Rabbi Robin Damsky of Limitless Judaism connects the Kabbalistic practice of Omer meditations with the cycle of the seasons using meditation, melody, movement, agricultural practice, and texts.
We invite you to join us regardless of your experience with meditation or text study.
This journey is designed as a seven part series and you are welcome to join any or all of it.
Rabbi Robin Damsky, identified by Kenissa (kenissa.org), as an innovator redefining Jewish life, has just launched Limitless Judaism, her new online project of learning, earth planting and tending, movement, meditation, and melody in practice that draws the lines of connection between our physical bodies, our spiritual expression and Gaia, our earth-cosmos. Embracing this connection, we heal and grow ourselves as we heal and grow our planet.
She is also the founder and director of In the Gardens, a nonprofit that enhances personal and planetary well-being through organic, edible garden design, mindfulness practice and the Mindful Gardens Project ℠. Robin is co-chair of Hazon’s Rabbinical Advisory Board.
