Tikkun Olam for the Body, Restoring the World Within
A Daylong Jewish Mindfulness Retreat
Monday, February 18th 9am - 6pm (President’s Day)
Retreat Center
Led by Yael Flusberg & Alesandra Zsiba

In the depth of winter nature turns inward toward a season of quiet cultivation and tending. Our bodies mirror these cycles, and in turn, long for extra care as the days shorten and darkness falls. Join us for this signature JMCW Jewish mindfulness retreat at Pearlstone Retreat Center where we will immerse ourselves in the contemplative practices of restorative and yin yoga, guided meditation, mindful discussion and journaling. Working from the outside in, we will bathe ourselves in the healing balm of tikkun olam for the body, a gentle process of using stillness and reflection to restore the world within.


Instructor bios: 

Yael Flusberg is a senior teacher of Jewish mindfulness at the Jewish Mindfulness Center of Washington at Adas Israel. Her mindfulness journey began at orthodox yeshiva where she found herself mesmerized by the rich storytelling of Torah. She gravitated toward practices like kavanah, the art of creating an intentional mindset for learning and ritual (“with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might”). In her adult years, while working as a social justice advocate, Yael began a lifelong pursuit of mindfulness technologies, ranging from Kabbalah to Q’ero Andean Shamanism to Terevada and Tibetan Buddhism to Yoga. Yael is a sought-after yoga therapist, writer and coach who helps people find resiliency and relief in the midst of transition. Visit her at

Alesandra Zsiba is Director of the Jewish Mindfulness Center of Washington at Adas Israel. If she had one, her spiritual autobiography would open with a description of her Zayde, a flaming mystic, father of niggunim, soul friend, and the ultimate Jewish mindfulness practitioner. At JMCW Alesandra works to create a laboratory for Jewish mindfulness, a place where curiosity, contemplation and creativity meet. As a guide on the path of integrative practice, her teaching draws on a deep reservoir of mindfulness practices in yoga, meditation, pranayama, Taiji, Kabbalah, and movement meditation improvisation.
