Tikkun Ha-olam (repair of the world) is one of the key commitments and practices of Judaism. In this retreat we consider Jewish (and maybe some Buddhist!) teachings on love and compassion and how we can work with them to open up our lives. Practice sitting and walking meditation, engage in contemplative prayer, and listen to talks by Makor Or teachers Norman Fischer and Rabbi Jonathan Slater.

This retreat includes a ticket for a book talk by Norman Fischer.

About the Instructors:

Norman Fischer is the spiritual leader of Makor Or, a Zen master, founder of Everyday Zen and a poet. His books include Jerusalem Moonlight, Taking Our Places, Sailing Home, and Question/Places /Voices/Seasons.

Rabbi Jonathan Slater is a renowned teacher of mindfulness meditation and a leading authority on, and translator of, classical Hasidic masters. For many years, he served as rabbi at Congregation Beth Ami in Santa Rosa and currently is Co-Director of Programs of the Jewish Spirituality Institute.
