About the Workshop
Passover, or Pesach, was the ancient spring festival of the land of Canaan, a time of cleansing and renewal, that became intertwined with the story of the Exodus from Egypt. In this one-day workshop, we take a new look at the old stories. Right now, we need sources of resilience and creativity to help us counter the bondage of a society growing ever more callous, cruel and oppressive.
Miriam — an ancient Hebrew Goddess long before she became a Biblical figure — was said to have a well that followed her wherever she went. We too can find deep sources of strength and regeneration that can replenish our energy and deepen our magic even when we wander in the desert of our current social and environmental breakdowns. Together we will co-create ritual to drink from the well of renewal and restore the promise of justice and compassion.
