A Creative Ketubah-Like Writing Workshop for Any Relationship

A ketubah is a traditional Jewish marriage document signed by both partners before the wedding. In this workshop we will create a ketubah-like document for any relationship in our lives: friends, family, work associates, community members.

Every relationship has a life unto itself. Whether we experience the full fruits of what is possible or fall far from our potential has a lot to do with who we are and our assumptions about what we need and expect of each other. Often these assumptions are left unsaid, felt subtly, argued about or ignored. The Blueprint of We is a framework for co-creating personal, business or community relationships that have more trust, ease, honesty and creativity — for two people, a group, or an entire organization. Come learn how to apply this framework in your life by writing your own ketubah-like document for any relationship.

Tickets are $10-$20 sliding scale and $20 at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds.
