Broadcast on August 19, 2022
With Taya Mâ Shere
Hosted by Mike Morrell

Immerse in the wisdom of modern-day mystic and transformative ritual artist Taya Mâ Shere as she speaks to the ancient art of prayer and the power of pulsing presence in body and spirit. Renowned for her radical spiritual leadership in Jewish communities and beyond, Taya Mâ shares perspectives from her own spiritual practice, offers insight into ancestral healing, and invites us to root in blessing as a path to contend with these turbulent times. Come home to embodied presence and emerge renewed.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Healing at the root of our spiritual traditions and how to reclaim these ancient practices to be relevant for the current time
  • How to reclaim prayer from antiquated distant cosmologies toward an alive practice rooted in our bodies, an awareness of right pace, and devotion to pleasure
