‘Crossing Lines’ Reflection Activity

From Emma Golub ’16:

The Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) is celebrated this year beginning on the evening of September 22. Following the traditional evening service, I will be leading an exercise in mindfulness called ‘Crossing Lines’. Talia Baurer ’15 brought this to our community at Wes; you may have participated in variations of it with her throughout the past 3 years(!) or elsewhere.

One side of the room will be designated ‘Agree’, the other ‘Disagree’. I will read aloud statements and we will shuffle about the room according to our levels of agreement. If you are uncertain about a statement or don’t wish to share, you’re welcome to stand in the middle, or step outside of the activity. The space we create is judgment-free and confidential. The idea is to practice a consciousness, to be a support system, to learn. You certainly do not need to be Jewish to participate. The statements range from small-talk/sillier to quite personal, and we will have a discussion afterwards!

Date: Today, September 22
Time: 9-10pm
Place: The Bayit, 157 Church St.
