Tu B'Av with Yelala | Wednesday August 10 | 19.30-21.00|
0.00 - 15.00
For our ancestors, the journey towards the New Year and Yom Kippur was a whole season of internal and external pilgrimage, the month beforehand peppered with grave-visiting, ritual candle-making, deep-night devotion, even full moon rituals by the sea.
In ancient Israel, the grape harvest began on Tu b’Av, a day filled with joyous festivities of connection and pleasure. Yelala invites you to renew and reclaim this celebration with a rich and playful introductory-level exploration of sacred text study, and sacred sexuality meditations suitable for all sexualities and genders. Meet the archetype of the Sacred Lover in Jewish sacred text and within yourself. You will not be expected to participate in or share intimate experiences with the group.
Advance booking essential. Due to the sensitive nature of this event, we may check your relationship with Yelala if you are booking an event with us for the first time.
Yelala is an ancient Hebrew word meaning a loud expression of something that needs to be release, whether sorrow or joy. Yelala is a constellation of projects curated by Kohenet Rachel Rose Reid and Kohenet Yael Tischler, the first women outside of North America to be ordained by the kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute. This is Jewish-rooted, earth-centre sharing of empowering, embodied practice and marginalised wisdom from Biblical antiquity to the present day.
