    “Recipes for a Sacred Life,” by Rivvy Neshama

    in Self Help

    Who is Rivvy Neshama?

    At twenty-two years old, Rivvy Neshama's mother gave her a book of handwritten recipes that taught her how to make a good roast and not much else. Not advice on how to establish a good marriage or even a good life. Instead, Rivvy had to go on a path with many twists and turns in order to find a connection with the sacred and add purpose in life.

    Rivvy has held on to lots of jobs in the past. She has been a teacher and social worker in Harlem, a campaign manager in Boulder, a college instructor in Queens, and even a Tarot card reader at Macy's on Halloween. Given such a storied life, it's no wonder why she has an innate ability for storytelling, which is clearly shown in this book.

    Recipes for Living a Sacred Spiritual Life

    in Current Events

    Are you meandering through this ever changing life and hitting circumstances that challenge your beliefs, habits and engrained patterns to only bring up the deeper questions of existence?  Is there a place where you can hear stories of how other people may have experienced the same things you are thinking about and can share these with you in a simple way?  While you may hear a new language about gratitude, sacred sex, loving nature and forgiveness, how can you see this fitting into your busy life? 

    My guest is Rivvy Neshama, author of Recipes for a Sacred Life, which is a recipe book for how to live a sacred life in a world that is very busy.  She has collected meaningful and inspiring stories from her life that answer profound questions which no one before has provided even a template to start to answer.  Rivvy is a writer, editor and longtime community organizer whose spiritual path draws from many sources; Eastern/Western religions, Native traditions, shamans and her mom. 

    No matter your age, Rivvy has many true stories to lighten your load and let you know, there are many like minded people having the same experience; what is most important is to share these experiences so others can reflect back on 'your recipes' for a sacred life.

    Shmitta year: What it means for Israel

    in Judaism

      Starting at Rosh Hashanah, Israel will be going through the Shmitta [Sabbatical] year. Why is that significant? Because it's one way of signifying that Israel [and the world] belongs to G-d. Just as the Jewish people get a rest day one day of the week [Shabbat], the land is to rest every seven years. The Torah gives two reasons to observe Shabbat: to acknowledge G-d as the creator and to remember their liberation form Egypt [Mitzrayim]. Shabbat ultimately sends the Jew two messages: that they acknowledge G-d as the ultimate sovereign and that they're not slaves. And with letting the land rest, it is to acknowledge that the land belongs to G-d. Just as the neshama Yehudi  [Jewish soul] naturally clings to Torah, G-dliness, and mitzvot, the land of Israel is a holy land, as seen even from Jewish law [Halacha]. Even when eating, the Jew acknowledges the holiness of Israel. For instance, for olives and apples, both of which is haetz, olives take priority just by being one of the seven species of fruit that Israel is praised for. And the Shmitta acknowledges G-d as the sovereign. It goes back to what Rashi said, when he said that the reason why the Torah did not begin with the first mitzvah, but with the creation of the world, was so then Israel can say that G-d ultimately gave the land to them if the other nations accuse Israel of stealing Canaanite land. Just as Shabbat is something from G-d that's out of this world, so too, Shmitta is something from G-d out of this world. The difference is that whereas the Jew goes by days, Eretz Yisrael [the Land of Israel] goes by years. But it's still the same principle. Shmitta also teaches that just as Klal Yisrael [the community of Israel] is holy, the land is also holy as well and is not merely something to be walked on and taken for granted.
