Led by Rabbi Sarah Tasman and Gideon Culman, Professional Certified Coach

September 7,  October 5 and November 2  2016 at WeWork Dupont Circle 

We’ll integrate practical coaching techniques, spiritual practices and mindful exercises all set in the context of the season of renewal and transformation in the Jewish calendar. In Session 1, experience a spiritual year in review process which will allow you to end the year powerfully and ready for Rosh Hashanah, the New Year. Session 2 will fall in during the 10 Days of Awe (between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) to make sure you’re on track to enter the holiest time of year with clear intentions for how you want to dedicate your year. Session 3 will follow the harvest holiday of Sukkot in which we’ll set managable steps for achieving our goals and allowing us to reap the spiritual benefits of this process throughout the year.

Wednesdays September 7, October 5, and November 2 at WeWork Dupont 1875 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington DC

PRICE: Early Bird Registration by August 7th: $120; Registration after August 7th: $150

Running Away: A Discussion on the Book of Jonah with Rabbi Sarah Tasman (Sanctuary)

Running away and then finding our way back again is one of the themes of great literature and the book of Jonah is no exception. In this session, we’ll take a look at the story of Jonah the reluctant Prophet and how his time in the belly of the big fish actually helps him become ready to do what he needs to do. As we ready ourselves to head into the New Year, do we experience any of Jonah’s reluctance in our own lives? What would help us to hear the still small voice within and really dive head first into our lives?
