Thank you for choosing to join me and artist Jacqueline Nicholls on this 40 day journey into a new year. I hope these reflections on the ripples of our being inspire private introspection and public conversation. Here’s today’s post:

Prepent Day 14

How are you from 1-10? This is one of my mother’s check in questions that can infuriate at times but regardless – always helpful. When it comes to relations between us and our parents there’s a lot going on including remorse, regret, and room for repair. Whatever your relation to whomever you identify as your parents – present or absent, alive or dead – take time today to call if you can, write a note, reflect on where you are right now in terms of parental relations, from 1-10. Then what? Resolve to solve as best if possible. Thank you mother!

Very excited for Lab/Shul’s fifth season of High Holy Days, back in Tribeca. We invite all ages to return to center, recharge soul, reclaim community and co-create our widening circles of care, compassion and justice.
