• Yelala Spring Retreat 2023

    Swindon, UK | 24-26 March 2023

    At last! We will gather together at the much beloved home of our first Yelala retreat, with many friends new and old. Join us to sing, soak in knowledge, celebrate Shabbat and be in each other's good company.

     

     

  • Your own Yelala Event

    We often work in partnership with co-hosts. These events can be private for you and your friends / participants, or open to the public - it's up to you. We make some basic agreements, and then you can promote to your heart's content. If the event is open to the public, we will help you to promote the event, too.

    We have been guests at music festivals, faith communities, interfaith events, meditation groups, podcasts, Red Tent & Rosh Chodesh (New Moon) groups, retreats, & private homes. We are happy to participate in single or multi-gendered gatherings, and Jewish, multi-faith, or secular groups.

    In Devotional Circles we learn accessible chants & song based on ancient Hebrew liturgy, and enter soulful, song-filled meditation together. Occasionally we also run rituals online, from Tu b'Shevat seders to moments
    ~
    In Learning Circles we can explore a rich variety of sessions based on the creation and history of Jewish rooted ritual, feminine archetypes* and narratives in a Jewish context, and we can adapt our teachings to suit all levels of Jewish knowledge. We use song, study of sacred and anthropological texts, and invite embodied exploration, and personal reflection.
    *Archetypes are based on the Netivot wheel, created by the Kohenet Institute as a tool for finding feminine representation in Jewish text & history.
