Rishe G  Bringing ancient traditions to sacred spaces. Embodied Jewish spirituality, greeting the Shechinah as the Divine Feminine rises. We got this #itstime

It's astonishing how life moves on us: ebbs, flows, shifts, changes in the dance of life. How some things stay the same while others move on, and others change so rapidly it's hard to remember they were ever another way. Sometimes we get the gift of glimpsing down an old road, seeing the path taken and living in a moment of Wow at the beauty of Divine orchestrations through the incredible unknown.
Today I'm in North Melbourne, sitting with my latte and paper in the very spot where I sat each day with my latte and paper and lunch for almost two years at my very first job at the age of nineteen. I look out the window of this cafe - now moved two doors down from where it used to administer my daily caffeine - and see the same view I saw at my very first job interview, the same spot where I cried, laughed, teased, joked, harassed and was harassed, shared my traditions, ate lunch, told stories, dreamed big, had my ambitions trodden on, sold shoes and learned everything I could ever imagine about the school of business, corporate Bs, cooperation, friendship and yes, plenty of patriarchy. It's a space where a 19 year old girl became a businesswoman, and despite the tears and hardships, one I would never take back in a million years. I sit here with my same soy latte and feel the healing course through my veins as all the pain transmutes into medicine, the teachings into a blessing of the warrior I've become today. This job was my first place I was seen as an adult, my own person. I had my first hangover, did my first uni assignment, bought my first car, all in this sacred spot. It's all I can do to throw up my arms to the heavens and say Thank You, thank you North Melbourne. Thank you Flemington Road, thank you for teaching me so beautifully.

Call of the Shofar: an ancient sound healing. What do you hear in its sound?

BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS!
It's bittersweet to part with some of these dear friends as I make space in my life and home for more books and ongoing learning. There's #chicklit #memoir #nonfiction #historicalfiction #autobiography #biography #tennis books #foodbook and more... Make an offer and take as many as you want, suggesting $1-$5 per book plus shipping. Can also offer pickup in Brooklyn - all before Thursday AM when they go off to Housing Works! Get in on it and love these babies as much as I do.

Life: on my own derech

"Round round round we go
Round and round we go...."
Such are the lyrics written by my brilliant soul sister @valeriegeffner, as we explore that carousel we're all on. "Their end is in the beginning, and their beginning in the end," says the ancient work of #Kabbalah, the #seferyetzirah, reminding us that there is no linear way about time, and it serves us to remember the patterns of the circles we traverse so we can ensure we travel in a spiral, getting closer to the middle even as we go round and round.
Thank you carousel of Brooklyn shvitz for inspiring today's teaching, and my favorite tourists @lanacg and @rayelberg for getting me there.

The camera will never capture the actual colors here, so I've gone for an artistically filtered view. Who knew I'd be so blessed to get a custom painted mural of lavender, mauve, lilac, cornflower blue, and hot pink magenta amid some sweet violet purples this fine morning?
Spoiler alert: we get one of these EVERY BLESSED DAY.
New trick, btw: instead of using a word like damn, f%¥%ing or anything else that was once a negative connotation, flip it to blessed.
.... And really blessing mean it.
Good morning. Brooklyn!

Mars gone retrograde, our summer season of astrological whaaaaat-thes just beginning, and I'm sitting here getting my Things In Order, wondering what the next few months will bring and praying dear Goddess that it's easy on me, that the lessons are learned smoothly, that the gains are big and beautiful, that the pain is bearable C that the teachings are memorable. The moon and our human path following the meandering journey of growth and development, waxing and waning, becoming and being. La Luna, Mama Moon, shining down on me and teaching me how to glow and grow, every day. .

As the sun sets on the longest day of the year, the heat of summer is upon us. For some that means long lazy days, but it also means feeling the fire, the heat within us that compels us to do more. The fire that cooks the meal and reshapes the metals and fuels our home. Are we ready to use it and transform? To take the heat of this week's heatwave - in our climate and in our national news - and use that to spur us into real change? On this solstice evening, what is your intention- to bring heat and fire into your life, to dwell on the work long and hard even when it gets hot, to stick it out even at its longest most drawn out moments. Here comes the sun. Let's show it what our planet is capable of.
