Repairing the Soul: Intergenerational Healing and Kabbalistic Wisdom — An Online Course with Rabbi Tirzah Firestone

Wednesdays, October 16 – November 6
6:00pm – 7:15 pm MT (5:00-6:15pm PT, 7:00-8:15pm CT, 8:00-9:15pm ET)

This month-long course, for people of all backgrounds, takes students on an intimate journey of self-exploration and intergenerational healing. Combining Jewish mystical texts, relevant research from neuroscience, teachings from the field of Jungian psychology, guided meditations and ritual, Reb Tirzah will demonstrate how life’s greatest challenges often originate in our ancestral legacies, and how we can transform the into usable wisdom and moral leadership. Every person has a family and every family has a story. Our family stories contain riches to be mined and ruptures to be healed. Join me for this life-changing journey!

The course will be based at Kabbalah Experience’s online classroom. Classes will be held remotely with Zoom Video Conferencing. Questions? Email Reb Tirzah.

This course is for you if you:

  • Wish to deepen your transformative work in the world from a place of personal awareness.

  • Want the blessings of wise and well ancestors whom you feel are out of reach.

  • Want to move forward with your life but feel some heaviness in your family of origin that keeps you unsure, unsteady, or lacking direction.

  • Have relatives who have died or left the family under difficult circumstances such as war, displacement, accidents, suicide, mental illness, or addiction.

While this work is based in Jewish source teachings, it is open to people of all ethnic and faith backgrounds.

$137 KE members, $187 KE guests
Scholarships and discounts are available.
In addition to registration for the course, Reb Tirzah is offering course participants a private session at a discount of $85. You may schedule your one-on-one session with her online after registration.

2:00 PM14:00

Intergenerational Trauma and Ancestral Healing Workshop and Book Signing in Portland

Family wounds can reverberate for generations.  Many of our ancestors suffered traumas such as war, poverty, mental illness, addiction, suicide, or early death, creating patterns that can become lodged in the resonant field of our families. Such patterns can act like magnets, profoundly influencing our lives and the lives of future generations. In this experiential workshop, you will have the opportunity to harvest your family's healthy resources as well as to heal problematic ancestral patterns. Dr. Firestone will share remarkable case studies and trauma science as well as ritual, and guided meditations that engage both sides of your brain and promote life-changing transformation. Questions?

High Holidays with Metivta
Sep
29
to Oct 9

High Holidays with Metivta

Santa Monica Synagogue

"We come to High Holidays because we are hungry. Not for bread or water, as the prophet Amos said. Certainly not for schmaltzy platitudes or pie-in-the-sky prescriptions. We come because we are starved for the immediacy of God's presence. We come because we need a direct experience of the holy, to be awakened by the raw and primal blasts of the shofar, to sit with a community with whom we can be our most genuine selves."

Join us for INCLUSIVE services with an eclectic and rich mix of prayer, contemplation, chant, teaching, movement and silence.

Reb Tirzah Firestone leads us in prayer, chant, and contemplation to create a meaningful and inspiring Jewish High Holiday experience. Rev Tirzah will be joined by prayer leader, Evelyn Baran, and Cantor Marc Bachrach.

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/high-holidays-with-rabbi-tirzah-firestone-tickets-70101287839
