Havdalah, the ceremony that marks the end of Shabbat, ritualizes our transition into the unknown of the new week. In this post-havdalah session, we’ll explore the wisdom of not-knowing, using a methodology that combines learning and a facilitated creative process. This session is for everyone, not just those who think of themselves as “creative” or “artistic” or artists. Bring a notebook, something to write with, and a few materials for creating (anything from watercolors or paints to old newspaper or magazines). Together, we will surface new insights into the potential and power of the unknown.
