I am taking two classes each day, for four days. In the morning I am taking a class in Jewish Musical Shamanism with Richard Kaplan. This included sharing and discussion on how music affects both our own spirituality and how we interact with others. We also learned a number of songs which Richard has collected from around the world, from both Jewish and other sources. At the end of the week we performed a few of them for the Kallah. In the afternoon David Seidenberg taught a combination of teachings from Rebbe Nachman of Breslav about serving God with dance together with actually doing various dances, ranging from traditional Hassidic dances to modern dances.
Evenings were full of talent, often with a choice of several programs.( Collapse )
