The Sacred Practice of Dreaming
The month of Kislev is the month of dreaming. We explore the practice of dreamwork to connect to deep places within ourselves, to the vastness of the universe and to the deep feminine.
Rabbi Jill Hammer, PhD, is an author, teacher, midrashist, mystic, poet, essayist, and priestess. She is committed to an earth-based and wildly mythic view of the world in which nature, ritual, and story connect us to the body of the cosmos and to ourselves.
Rabbi Hammer is the Director of Spiritual Education at the Academy for Jewish Religion, a pluralistic rabbinical and cantorial seminary in Yonkers, NY. Rabbi Hammer is also the co-founder of the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute, a program in spiritual leadership for Jewish women. As a leader of the Kohenet Institute, she creates and teaches earth-based, embodied ritual and study that transforms Jewish conceptions of prayer and ceremony.
Rabbi Hammer is also the author of five books including Sisters at Sinai: New Tales of Biblical Women; The Omer Calendar of Biblical Women, The Book of Earth and Other Mysteries, and The Hebrew Priestess. Rabbi Hammer also has written an unpublished book titled Elemental Dreaming, and her forthcoming book is called The Magic, Meditation and Mystery of Sefer Yetzirah.
