Queer Mikveh Project: Water Immersion for All

September 10, 2023 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm PDT

Welcome the Days of Awe with ritual and community with the practice of Mikveh (Jewish ritual immersion in water) through a queer lens. While the historical roots of mikveh come from ancient notions of purity and impurity, this workshop will explore ritual immersion as a spiritual technology for healing the body, mind, and spirit for all bodies.

Using Mikveh we will come together in community to collaborate in our healing, interdependence and transformation through ritual, prayer, and song. What we can let go of to be most present for our upcoming holy days, be in community, sing, pray and revel in the holy mayyim hayyim, living waters.

This offering will take place over Zoom.

Featuring contributions from Harriette Wimms, Aliko Tree and Rebekah Erev
