Re//Turning: A Jewish Spirituality Retreat


  • Butzel Conference Center 3599 Perryville Road Ortonville, MI United States (map)

Are you a seeker looking for a space to gaze inward? Are you a creative looking for a weekend of play? Perhaps you are looking to rejuvenate your Jewish practice with contemplative influences?

This retreat, hosted at the beautiful Butzel Conference Center, offers the opportunity to pause, look inward, engage in creativity, and play without the constant need to achieve. In the flow of everyday life, it can be difficult to grant ourselves permission to explore our inner selves. Join The Well in exploring various means of creativity and spirituality, while practicing how such means can be incorporated into Jewish practice! Get excited for mindfulness meditation, yoga, song, experiential writing, art projects, nature walks, Jewish mysticism chats, and alternative prayer experiences!

We are blessed to be welcoming Rabbi Benjamin Shalva as our Scholar-In-Residence. A rabbi, writer, meditation teacher, and yoga instructor, Benjamin Shalva regularly leads seminars in Spiritual Cross-Training, Kabbalah Yoga, Jewish Meditation, and Mindfulness Meditation. He received his rabbinical ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary and his yoga teacher certification from the Yogic Physical Culture Academy in Los Cabos, Mexico. He is the author of two books -- Spiritual Cross-Training: Searching through Silence, Stretch, and Song and Ambition Addiction: How to Go Slow, Give Thanks, and Discover Joy Within.

Tickets are available at the subsidized cost of $100 due to the generosity of donors and also with gratitude for the generous subsidy from Moishe House, who is serving as a sponsor for this event.
