Retreats are an integral part of the Metivta experience. They give us the opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in order to truly connect with each other and ourselves. Through meditation, chant, study, and prayer, each retreat serves to better equip us for the challenges and wonder that life brings.
For more information on any of our retreats, please contact Lyle Poncher at email@example.com.
Each Spring, we gather to meditate, pray, and study in reflective and intimate quiet. The experience is communal yet contemplative—a way of preparing for Pesach and creating a loving Shabbat, a time out of time.
This retreat is not suited for beginners unfamiliar with meditation or with our resonant style of study, speaking from a place of silence without intellectual combat. Participants should plan to attend the entire retreat.
Dates and Location TBD
Elul, the month leading up to the Days of Awe, is a period of profound spiritual preparation. During it, we are encouraged to engage in deep self-introspection, to offer and ask for forgiveness for times we have fallen short, and, by so doing, to draw the Divine out from even our darkest shadows.
For our 2012 retreat, we were joined by Andrew Hahn, the Kirtan Rabbi for a weekend of meditation, chant, prayer, and learning.
