Sacred Time Cheshvan The Living Jewishly Podcast

    • Religion & Spirituality

“Even when it doesn’t feel like there is excitement, there are our rhythms and there are our cycles.”
— Bluth 


After the social and structured rituals of the High Holidays, the month of Cheshvan is a period of personal contemplation during which we turn to the quieter rhythms of our daily commitments. The absence of Holy Days during this month challenges us to source our connection with the sacred from within. In doing so, we are able to look both back and forward to address our priorities — what is meaningful and important at this moment.


This instalment of the Living Jewishly Podcasts revisits the Cheshvan episode of Sacred Time, a podcast devoted to the healing art of the Hebrew calendar.  Bluth and Ganga Devi discuss the month of Cheshvan, and the many ways that we can develop structures and systems to reconnect us with our true priorities in life.


Though it is a more introspective month, it is still one of action. The process of self-inquiry identifies what is precious and tender to us, so we are then able to step fully into those relationships — with the divine, with our loved ones, and with ourselves.


“The structures and systems of religions should exist to support each of our own personal and direct relationships with what is sacred.”
— Ganga Devi


This‌ ‌episode discusses:‌ ‌
Being mindful of how we relate to systems of authority and power outside of ourselves in our relationship with what is sacredThe importance of motivating ourselves to find empowerment in responsibility by creating our own structures in the absence of external onesWhy Cheshvan is the perfect time to focus on restorative and nurturing self-care  ‌
