Rituals for Healing: Workshop & Ceremony
Glazer Campus (eastside)

Join us on Sunday, February 24 and Saturday, March 2 for a healing ritual for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. We will draw upon rituals and texts of the Jewish tradition and the Muslim tradition along with personal reflections and prayers.

Both sessions are held at our Glazer Campus (eastside).

Sunday, February 24, 10:00 a.m.

Writer Racelle Rosett will offer a creative, hands-on workshop for participants to craft their own prayer of healing. In preparation for our Havdallah ritual and drawing on creative writing practice, participants will be guided and supported in the creation of a personal healing prayer for use in silent prayer, and another prayer for others in need of healing within our community. Past workshop participants express that this creative work helps them to find a renewed and deepened sense of connection to their individual spiritual prayer practice. Working together with faith groups that draw from different traditions, our shared prayer writing experience holds within it a recognition of our common cause as we create this new ritual of healing.


Saturday, March 2, 6:30 p.m.

A ritual of healing.
This past year has brought a new reckoning with the #Metoo movement that is only just beginning to break through the layers that need to be healed and changed and held accountable and rebuilt and healed and healed again.
Open to all - those who are healing from sexual abuse, trauma, assault, harassment and those who want to be present as support and healing witness.

Bring an herb or spice to add to our communal spice bowl. (lavender, cinnamon, rosemary, sage...)
