Description A New Vision of Jewish Women’s Spiritual Leadership Week 1: August 9 – 15, 2010 Kohenet Open Shabbat: August 6 – 8, 2010 "Studying text, integrated with women's other ways of knowing, has helped me find places in Judaism where I can fully engage as a woman.” –Kohenet participant The Kohenet Training Intensive seeks to revitalize the connection between Judaism and the Divine Feminine by helping women reclaim the ancient role of the kohenet — the priestess or sacred servant who facilitates holy Jewish experiences. Kohenet trains women to exercise their spiritual power in a distinctly feminine way as the needs of Jews, women and the planet as a whole continue to emerge and evolve. Kohenet supports Jewish women on their journeys as individuals and as communal leaders. Participants study traditional texts — Torah, Talmud, Kabbalah and Near Eastern myths — in ways that call forth Shechinah, the indwelling feminine Presence. Kohenet trainees also explore practices that have been passed down by generations of Israelite and Jewish women, including birthing amulets, dreamwork and the celebration of women's holidays. Each of the four weeklong Kohenet retreats is organized around thirteen netivot — paths that correspond to archetypes such as Wise Woman, Mother, Shamaness, Priestess, Prophetess, Midwife and Matriarch. By weaving these netivot throughout prayer, sacred chant and experiential learning, participants learn to create and lead powerful rituals and to embody the many forms of the sacred feminine. Our core programs are facilitated by Kohenet founders and faculty, and we often welcome leadership by our students themselves and by select guest teachers.
