Please join me for another morning prayer experience outdoors in the beautiful Berkshire hills. We will gather together at "Diane's Trail"  for an alternative morning prayer service that will include chanting, walking meditation through the woods and davening. See below for directions.

As Rebbe Nachman said, "when a man goes out to the meadows to pray, every blade of grass, every plant and flower all enter his prayers and help him, putting power and strength into his words." (Lekutei Moharan II)


This prayer hike will be gentle. 
Please bring bug spray, water and a tallit  if you so choose. I will provide an alternative siddur designed for this hike. If you would like to daven the complete traditional shacharit, please bring your own siddur.


RSVP to this email address would be appreciated.
