The Book of Creation: Sefer Yetzirah as an Ecotheological Text with Rabbi Jill Hammer
Hosted By: Lake Erie Institute / Sacred Earth Judaism
The ancient mystical book Sefer Yetzirah conceives of the cosmos as a sacred space, and includes in its model of creation the elements of air, water, and fire as well as time, space, and the body. Each letter of the alef-bet embodies one of the diverse forces that build our world, and together the letters are a network supporting the existence of life. Sefer Yetzirah cultivates a sense of presence and sacred place wherever we are, and can be understood as a contemporary resource for ecotheology. In this session, look at passages of Sefer Yetzirah and consider how we might understand them as earth wisdom for our time.
