Blessing of a Broken Ankle

Hmmm….”Living Creatively”.

Seems that this upcoming course (see below) which I am very excited and honored to teach is maybe something that I not only desire to share with fellow friends, but it is something that I look forward to internalizing myself.

In my current journey to health and healing after breaking my ankle in 3 places 2 weeks ago, “Living Creatively” takes on new meaning.

What has inspired me to delve deeper? Is it the fact that I am trying to figure out how to run a household from my bed? (or let go of running a household from my bed!) Is it the challenge of conveying my needs when I would simply rather do it myself? Or is it the formidable task of mothering 8 kids ka”h, from a horizontal position, while reading books, beading necklaces, doing homework all while trying to rest, heal and let go?

Is it the surrendering and letting go that inspires creativity or is it seeing and feeling the intentions and blessings of  G-d within the painting of life? Are we an admirer of art or are we the artist? Are we choosing our attitudes, thoughts and perspectives and are we blending our colors to create a vibrant life? And how does Judaism fit in?

How can we as women tap into the energy that is found deep within our Judaism? How can we take our very own canvas of life, and paint it with magnificent hues of depth, meaning and connection, all while we go about our busy day to day life.

We as women, have an intrinsic connection. We have the power of Jewish Femininity that infuses our life with a symphony of color in our very own palette, our very own soul.

But how? How do we really live beautifully, with purpose, with creativity? How does Judaism inspire living with color and passing it along to others?

Please join me on a 7 month journey, to delve into our inner spiritual palate, one we may not even know exists.

Looking forward to sharing the experience with you,
sincerely,

Chana

LIVE CREATIVELY

We are fascinated by artists. Their work embodies what we want our lives to be: beautiful, meaningful, purposeful. But art is not only for artists. It’s for anyone who craves to know how to live more creatively, more deeply. Join us on a seven-part journey as we explore Judaism’s insights into the arts and how they beautify and transform our lives, one brushstroke at a time…

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 17

7:30pm – 9:00pm

LESSON ONE
I – Painting & Drawing
The Inner Eye of the Artist
What is art? What endows a painting with that magical power to convey a dimension of beauty and meaning that the object or scene it represents does not reveal to us on its own? Is it only artists who have access to that magic, or can we all learn to discover it? How do we transform our everyday lives into a work of art?
