Reset: Building Resilience Through Spiritual Practice and Growth

When we renew our spirits, we renew our commitment to fighting for liberation and justice.

Reset 2020 offers Jewish activists a chance to replenish their spirits and engage with spiritually rich, accessible online content suited for people across Jewish tradition and backgrounds.

What We Offer

Immersions

We provide multi-session online workshops, called “Immersions,” to develop spiritual knowledge in a collective learning environment, and learn how to bring this knowledge into our lives and communities. In collaboration with Ritualwell, our Immersions are donation-based and taught by experts in Jewish resilience, movement practice, meditation, art, and more.

Our upcoming workshops include:

Spiritual Library

Our spiritual library provides short, accessible spiritual practices available to a wide audience of organizers, activists, and all those seeking to recharge through spiritual replenishment. From October 4th-Nov 3rd, we’re offering Harvesting Resilience: 30 Days of Spiritual Practice Before the Election. Sign up here!

Sample resources include:

  • Guided meditations by Rabbi Alex Weissman, Rabbi Sheila Weinberg, Rabbi David Jaffe, Rabbi Lauren Tuchman, and more.
  • Embodied movement practices by Yoshi Silverstein and Julie Emden
  • Traditional chants and songs from Rabbi Vivie Mayer and Koach Baruch Frazier
