Standing at Sinai: Opening to Presence

Five-Day Jewish Mindfulness Retreat in the High Desert of New Mexico Guided by Rabbi Yael Levy

May 17-22, 2018, Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center, Abiquiu, NM

Join us as we gather for the tenth A Way In retreat in the sacred beauty of the red rock desert of New Mexico.

In a unique combination of silence, song and movement, woven together by Rabbi Yael Levy’s inspired teachings, we will celebrate Shavuot and the revelation on Mount Sinai, and mark the end of another Omer journey. The awesome surroundings and the power of community create a holy time that helps us to open to the Mystery that fills all creation.  


Rabbi Yael Levy Video: "Why Go On A Retreat?"

We go on a retreat...

To step out of our daily lives.

To regenerate, realign, re-balance, and enable ourselves to see more clearly so we can act more wisely.

To heal our own souls... and to come back and to heal the soul of the world...
