Interfaith Wellness Retreat

July 15 - July 18, 2024

Dr. Alyssa M. Cady

Dr. James Bae DACM, E-RYT, C-IAYT

Join us for a restorative week of conversation and spiritual renewal, sponsored by the Center for Interfaith Dialogue at Temple Emanu-El, Manhattan. We seek to foster an inclusive, welcoming getaway in which members of all faith traditions may engage in meaningful dialogue while enjoying the therapeutic setting of the Menla Resort and Spa.Led by experts in the field, our morning seminars will explore such topics as Tibetan Buddhism, common themes in global religions, and spiritual practice in the modern era. A wide array of optional yoga, meditation, and Qi gong classes will be offered daily for those wishing to integrate mind and body in an accessible and supportive environment. With the afternoons free, participants can take full advantage of the natural splendor of the Catskills, luxuriate at the spa, or strengthen emerging relationships with those of different faiths.At the Center for Interfaith Dialogue at Temple Emanu-El, we strive to offer programming that is as open and inclusive as possible. To that end, it is our privilege to support the cost of tuition for the duration of the retreat – registrants need cover only their own lodging and travel. We hope that you will return home from our Interfaith Wellness Retreat with a stronger and more expansive community, as well as a greater sense of peace in the modern world. Whether you are a cleric, a lay practitioner, or a secular person seeking a respite from city-life, all are welcome to join the conversation with us this July!If you have registered with Temple Emanu-El please use the password TE724 to book accommodations today!
