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

The sun rises on a world of possibility. Of a world where people gather in love and enthusiasm and excitement to share their passions and build a better world. A world of organic farms, immersive retreats, earth-based ritual, outdoor education, Jewish-holiday-based farming and camping and spiritual outdoor practices, permaculture communities and gender equity task forces. Of sacred embodiment and feminine power, of local sustainable food and innovative use of resources. A world where all our wildest dreams are coming true thanks to a group of crazy, passionate, ridiculously visionary and diligently hard-working people who won't take no for an answer and see a better world behind this sunrise. To the world of JOFEE (Jewish outdoor food farming environmental education), thank you for welcoming me and showing me what's possible. #jofee #jofeenetworkgathering @hazonvision

Here at @pearlstonecenter about to celebrate the Shabbat of Sukkot with prayers for salvation, for rain, for abundance and expansion.
May we all find with us the ability to leap with faith, to believe, to trust, to know what is right... And in that, to experience the miraculous, the transformational, the world-changing and the magical, held in the safety of the Divine even amidst the uncertainty and impermanence of our man-made structures, from sukkot to supreme courts.

May the blessings be reaped #adbliday

I learned to play this song at age five. It's still the only song I can play. This time, on a child size piano with my dear aunt accompanying me. I'm astounded at how magical it sounds... Back to basics may be the answer in more ways than one

I've lived in this apartment building for almost four years, and for three Sukkot holiday experiences. Each season I've dreamed of building myself a little sukkah hut, that expression of impermanence that Jews build all over the world - rain, hail, dust storm or shine - to indicate our trust in the Divine, the embodiment of full Divine presence in our lives, and our desire to literally step into a sacred embrace of Oneness with the creator and the elements. I've spent the day before sukkot in tears, wailing, "Goddess, why! All I want is to build you a house!" I've sat upstairs listening to the sweet songs of my neighbors, feeling strange to be indoors, uncomfortable being at the mercy of friends, no matter how kind and generous they are, without a space of my own.
This year, I articulated the prayer. "All I want for the new year is a sukkah," I said. But I may be a Burner, but I'm the girl holds the pole still while others stake it down and spray paints the poles and wraps them together and zip ties the canvas things to the poles but I really can't mastermind such a build, and it kills me. At this epic week of burning man for Jews, I've got the singing and the hosting and the decorating down, but never have I manifested a hut of my own...
Until today.. Exiting my building I see two Israeli young me carrying poles... I find out they're visiting and staying in a rental in my building, and built the sweetest hut to share with us all. On heading out back to check it out, I discovered another minuscule structure; the portable popup type, also sitting pretty in the backyard.
I always wanted to build Goddess a house. This time, She built me two.
So tonight I will pray, I will bless, I will sit with gratitude in a sukkah of our own.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
May we be blessed to rest under the sukkah of peace, the clouds of Divine love, and feel grounded in the impermanence and blessed in and out of the structures of our lives.

Ahead of the game getting my holiday swag and some back to school needs from my favorite concierges of spiritual practice at @judaica_world crown heights. Thanks Tali (@mimulo) and Sroli for always being there for me through my random and always somewhat urgent purchases, in an environment that sometimes feels challenging as a lady, even in 2018. In today's world, supporting local bookstores - especially Judaica - is paramount and I'm grateful to have this lovely space to race into before a holiday and get my needs taken care of by my soul family there. Even if a dude did tell me to pipe down as I tried out every shofar in the store... Baby steps! And now I'm going home with a sleek black fancy pants model that I'm super amped (pun intended) to wreak all kinds of havoc with some epic spiritual sound healing this Rosh Hashanah!

Sunrise series. No filters can show the magic of what I'm seeing outside the lens. A hot pink ball of benevolence, warming us and feeding us and giving us Light, rising to greet the day. V'zarach hashemesh... What are we going to do differently to honor the magic that is this day?

Good morning Brooklyn

Found the ultimate #coles #collectables

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.
