Tikkun Olam in Motion - Berkeley, USA
“Tikkun is translated from Hebrew as repair. Olam in Biblical Hebrew connotes all of time. In later Hebrew, it came to mean the world.” Indeed, the biblical narrative describing the creation of the original human beings tells us that we were placed in the Garden of Eden “to work it and to protect it”. Tikkun Olam is often used to describe acts of social justice and environmental awareness. These are important, as we are all responsible to right injustice. “Silence,” says the Talmudic edict, “is consent.” And it is certainly vital that we ensure the sustainability of life upon this magnificent stage of creation.”
In this workshop we will draw on the maps of Movement Medicine and Joanna Macy’s excellent work to reconnect and help us embody and explore these questions. We will weave the magical concept of Tikkun Olam into the changes needed to meet the current personal, local and global context of opportunity and challenge so we can do our best to be in service.
