Welcoming the Sabbath/Entering Sacred Space (and Veggie Pot Luck)

with Yankl Josephson

In the Jewish tradition Friday night is the beginning of sacred/transformed time. Similarly entering into Poly Living is also a time of transformed consciousness. Participants are invited to participate in a ritual to enter into that sacred space, based on the Kabbalistic ritual to entering the Sabbath. All beliefs welcome. (Location TBA at registration table) After the ritual we will share a vegetarian meal of celebration.
