A Conversation with Rabbi Donna Berman about Spirituality, Grace, and Healing


Women’s Evening Retreat

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Rabbi Donna Berman, Ph.D.

Rabbi Donna Berman will explore how spirituality, the arts, psychotherapy and social justice each lovingly hold both the Divine and the Shadow at their center. Through text and story, she will share how these seemingly opposite spheres, when taken together, can lead us to a life of open-heartedness, honesty and compassion. Donna is a strong believer in Emma Goldman’s famous statement: “If I can’t dance to it, it’s not my revolution.” Therefore, you can expect an evening of laughter, joy and learning. 

Offering: $40, includes dinner
