I hope there is still a bit of an afterglow from last weekend’s retreat with Daniel Matt – there certainly is one for me.
I wanted to take this opportunity on behalf of the Metivta Board to thank you for participating and for helping to make this retreat a success with your kavanah (intention) and hakshavah (attentive listening). Your questions enriched the experience of learning for all of us and your contemplative silence during meditations elevated us all higher. Even if you had never meditated before or chose not to actively participate in all the contemplative sessions, you meaningfully held the space of kavanah in participation with and value for all of us.
We hope you benefitted from Daniel’s teachings and that you’re able to incorporate some of these ancient but “radical” ideas into your own understandings and practices.
We look forward to your joining us at some future Metivta event. Do look for email announcements, especially about the Jewish High Holidays which start at the end of September. Metivta offers a unique experience for the holidays which is truly hard to find anywhere else: a rare blend of tradition, mysticism, and contemplation. One does not need to have prior knowledge of the holiday services to fully participate, nor does one need to fear the loss of the beauty of Jewish liturgy. I think we achieve the perfect blend with Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, leaders from the Metivta community, and participants such as yourself.
Yasher koakh! to you – “From strength to strength!”
