Facilitated by Renna Ulvang, Spiritual Director and Psychotherapist
There are still spaces in our ongoing monthly women’s spirituality group, recommencing on Sunday,, September 6th, 2015 from 10:30 – Noon.
We are a group of inclusive and interfaith women who meet monthly and reflect on topics chosen to deepen and expand our spiritualities and connect us with one another. There is a mix of poetry, sacred text, reflective silence, sharing, journaling, movement, art making, tears and laughter as we open to one another’s sacred stories. Our group is designed for emotional safety.
We engage in the art of “holy listening.”
We meet for an hour and a half on the second Sunday of every month (rescheduling for holidays) in private homes in Richmond, California. If you are interested, please contact Renna at 415-298-1649 or visit: rennaulvang.com.

Project Nechama: Sukkot Yizkor Service in Memory of Children We Have Lost
At Beth El Berkeley
Congregation Beth El in Berkeley invites members of the community to join us at our second annual Sukkot Yizkor service in memory of all children we have lost. The service will take place on Sunday, October 4 at 4:30 pm. At this service, we will names our losses and remember all of our children – including adult children and those whose lives were never realized. The Yizkor service is open to everyone and we welcome anyone who has experienced such a loss – at any age or stage of life – to come together as we create a space for naming, grief and comfort.
Project Nechama engages in outreach, the dissemination of resources and building awareness to ensure that individuals and families experiencing pregnancy loss, stillbirth or the death of a child are supported by the community. Nechama is Hebrew for “comfort.” Congregation Beth El is at 1301 Oxford St at Rose in Berkeley. For more information, please visit www.bethelberkeley.org/projectnechama.
