Retreat Program

February 10-12, 2017, 14-16 Shevat | Pearlstone Retreat Center, near Baltimore

A Holistic, Healing Journey into Your Inner Essence

Engaging the Mind, Body, Spirit and Soul

Torah Wisdom 

The retreat is centered around stimulating Torah study sessions taught by award-winning author and renowned Torah teacher Rebbetzin Chana Bracha Siegelbaum of Midreshet B’erot Bat Ayin in the Holy Land of Israel. Together as women, we will explore Torah teachings on eating in holiness, and practice mindful eating. We will also elucidate the medicinal & mystical lessons of the holy fruits of the land. Meditation, visualization, writing exercises, music and even “laughing” yoga will be woven into the textual study for a completely integrated experience.

Song, Music & Dance

Music and song are profound vehicles for moving the spirit. We will express ourselves through joyful singing and before and after Shabbat Rebbetzin Chana Bracha will be accompanying our sing along with her guitar. We will unify as holy Jewish sisters at the drum circle and Rivka Malka Perlman will lead us in exhilarating creative dance Motzei Shabbat (Saturday night)

Meditation 

Based on techniques rooted in our own Jewish tradition, you will integrate Torah teachings through guided visualizations, connect to your Divine spark and enter the path of inner spiritual experience.

Meditative Movement 

Kosher invigorating Yoga sessions will facilitate you to observe your breath moving through your body, allowing your life force to awaken. You will discover, experience, and enhance the beauty that Hashem has imbued within your entire being.  Developing an awareness of your body-mind-breath connection will help you recognize and express your individual potential.

EmunaHealing 

Based on Torah sources on spiritual healing you will learn to let go and allow Hashem to act, in order to open blocks and engender healing and well-being. Steeped in Torah texts, EmunaHealing promotes spiritual growth and closeness to Hashem. Rebbetzin Chana Bracha’s EmunaHealing workshops will teach you practical healing tools through strengthening your emunah and connecting with Hashem’s light inherent in your neshamah. 

Women can bring redemption

Exile from Eden came about through unholy eating

Rectified eating will return our lost Paradise

Conscious Eating the Torah Way

The healing space you created totally nourished my heart and neshama. It allowed me the space to process certain pivotal life events that l hadn’t had time to reflect and absorb due to my hectic life.

The experience of your enlightening presence in my life and inspirational emunahealing with such a special and amazing group of women is still very strongly resonating in my consciousness.

The music, chavrutas, davening, workshops, and meditations offered a unique integrated experience. I hope to utilize the practical skills that you taught us in my professional and personal life.
