Yom Kippur Afternoon of Learning: Contraction & Expansion - The gifts and challenges of the High Holy Day Cycle, with Susan Kaplan

Monday, September 28, 2020 10 Tishrei 5781

2:00 PM - 2:45 PMZoom information available upon registration

At the beginning of the High Holidays, we are invited into contraction - as individually and collectively draw in for reflection and teshuvah.

The end of the holy days cycle brings us into expansion and returning to our regular life with intentionality.  You will be invited into silent reflection regarding a few questions and then be put into a break out session.  There you can exchange phone numbers and go out for a virtual walk & talk or go sit in your backyard while you talk.  This is a contemplative invitation, supporting your own deeper reflection process and to hear each other into speech during the phone conversation.  During this unusual time of COVID’s impact and “contraction” of our lives, this year’s cycle can feel more profound and challenging.

Susan Kaplan, MSW, MPA, RYT, has a Coaching, Facilitator and Trainer Practice, entitled Listening & Leading From Within LLC.  She also is a Certified Nonviolent Communication Trainer, Courage and Renewal Facilitator, Hatha Yoga Teacher, Art of Hosting Facilitator, and Professional Storyteller & Story Listener.  She provides equity training and practice groups, restorative conversations, individual and family coaching sessions, professional development, and leadership development.  Currently, she is also a coach for Beloved Community, a congregational and neighborhood Resiliency project, and teaches Communication as a Spiritual Practice series and Walking with Grief retreats.  Susan invites people into reflection and discernment processes, using a variety of mindfulness, yoga, and Courage work.  She is a Mystic Jew, who loves being outside and walking!
