Angels of History: how our history and our bodies are interconnected

Date: Monthly on Sunday evenings, beginning 7th November.

Join a small group of 8-12 people who will meet one Sunday evening a month to collectively process the impact of historical Jewish trauma and the ways Jews have responded. Delving into the impact of these histories, we hope to bring more awareness to the dynamics of power both within ourselves and in the world.

Your Facilitators will be Lea Misan and Alex Eisenberg

What is it?

A series of workshops exploring intergenerational Jewish trauma and our connection to the survival strategies of our ancestors. We will engage with our bodies as well as our dreams and the different roles that we carry within it. We will activate all of our senses by using storytelling, writing, drawing, music, movement and a connection to our inner feelings.

Who is it for?
All people with Jewish ancestors are affected in some way by the history of Jewish trauma. We welcome anyone who identifies as having Jewish ancestry, in all its diversity.
