Spirituality crosses all Ecumenical boundaries:

Spiritual Direction (Hashpa’ah) - the heart of the Center for Spiritual Friendship

Spiritual Direction is the cutting edge of what is next in the world of spirituality. It exists in the liminal space of not knowing. Spiritual Directors listen and lead people to the arms of God. They walk into the unknown accompanying somebody else, in the moment, openning to the spirit where it wants to go. Sacred listening transforms lives through the art of spiritual direction, spiritual guidance, spiritual accompaniment, anam cara in Gaelic, and Hashpaah in Hebrew. Rabbi Ori Har offers resources for spirituality, contemplative practice, compassionate listening, mindfulness, and discernment to all seekers. "Thy Light is in all forms. Thy Love in all beings."

"Spiritual direction helps people tend a deep connection with the holy, and contributes to peace, justice, and integrity of creation. In these difficult times, this connection is even more necessary." (Spiritual Directors International).

The offerings of the Center for Spiritual Friendship include individual Spiritual Direction, as well as interfaith Group Spiritual Direction for general individuals, and Group Spiritual Direction for caregivers as well as accompaniment for dying.

The Joy of Sage-ing ® - Acquiring a heart of wisdom

Building on the teachings of Reb Zalman and his book From Age-ing to Sage-ing, this program offers powerful contemplative tools for gathering and giving expression to the wisdom of our own ripening lives. Appropriate for all who want to gain deep meaning in the aging process, people of all ages, professionals working with elders, and clergy for their own eldering and for those they serve.

"Since I took the Sage-ing class, I feel younger." Rosemary Lohndorf

"Through sage-ing we have the opportunity to enhance our world by sharing with others from our deepest sense of self. The Joy of Sage-ing program helped me to start the interior work necessary to awakening the elder and sage that resides within. I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop for all looking to find authentic meaning in aging and a path to the ongoing growth of self, family and community.” Ken Klingman.

Dance Tefila - Pray with Your Body - "In all your ways know Her" (Proverbs 3:6)

"Know that the soul yearns to know the experience of the body, and the body in turn yearns to know the experience of the soul." Rebbe Nachman of Breslav.

If our tradition had kept sacred dance as a form of worship, what would it look like? From Torah we learn to continually be present to the gift of Life. Imagine dancing through the Four Worlds: listening to your body, allowing expression of your deepest yearning, tuning to the One hum of creation, and diving into your soul and back! Imagine being so open hearted, so attuned to the divine flow; that your whole body becomes an integrated, body-mind-soul experience! You need only a willingness to move in new ways, and to pray with your body. No background in dance is required.
