Intergenerational Rosh Chodesh Circle
February 15, 2018
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Intergenerational Rosh Chodesh Circle Co-Sponsored by At The Well
Reset and renew in the ancient ritual of Rosh Chodesh, an opportunity for women and trans folks to come together on the night of the New Moon. We will celebrate the first night of the Hebrew month of Adar, a time of mystery, joy, and opening to power. This will be a community space to honor our lineage and learn from one another’s wisdom through songs, blessings, sharing, and ritual. We invite female-identified people of all ages to join in this special night of warmth and love.
Rosh Chodesh, the first day of each Hebrew month, is historically associated with women’s renewal and celebration. Groups convene on this day for ritual, learning, spiritual connection, and honoring the passage of the seasons.
Tickets are $5 – $10 sliding scale. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
