Shir Hadash Retreat 2019

Join us at the Land of Medicine Buddha for this weekend retreat.

BRIDGES: Exploring Jewish and Buddhist perspectives; connecting in community to create internal bridges between body, mind and spirit.

Do you notice a need to balance the life of the mind with attention to body and spirit?

Do you wonder why so many Jews are drawn to Buddhist practices?

Would you like to experience awe and wonder at the beauty of our world in a natural setting? 


Come for a special weekend with Shir Hadash to explore these questions, learn and discuss other topics at the Land of the Medicine Buddha Retreat Center.  Join us to pray and learn with Rabbi Postrel, Rabbi Aron, and teacher Venerable Drimay in the Redwoods. Enjoy drumming with Dror Sinai. Listen to stories told by Erica Lann-Clark. Enjoy meditation, yoga, folk dance, hikes, and gentle movements. Discuss contrasts between Judaism and Buddhism and share expressions of Jewish art, music, nature poetry and humorous perspectives. Take advantage of this serene setting to relax in nature, hike in the redwoods, dip in the pool, or have a massage (available by appointment and for an extra fee). Nurture your inner self while also building and renewing friendships. Enjoy a unique Shabbat experience and vegetarian meals with our Shir Hadash family. 


UPDATE: We are excited to announce a wonderful addition to the upcoming Retreat. Sylvia Boorstein, author of That's Funny, You Don't Look Buddhist, will be joining us for a presentation and discussion.
