Welcome to Wellsprings of Wisdom, a Virtual Retreat Center
Wellsprings of Wisdom is a site for your soul, an island of quiet contemplation in a sea of noisy information. Pause here to refresh your soul, re-enchant your world, and renew your inner life.
At this virtual retreat center, ancient Jewish symbols from nature become gateways to personal growth and action. You are invited to immerse yourself in the Torah of mother earth through creative experiences, shared stories, and ancient wisdom.
“Let everyone who thirsts come to the waters,” (Isaiah 55:1). This site, rooted in teachings from the Bible and Jewish tradition, welcomes spiritual seekers of all backgrounds. The wellsprings of Torah are the inheritance of the Jewish people, no matter your denominational background or style of observance. And the Torah was given in the wilderness to demonstrate that it is open for everyone (of any faith) who wants to receive it.
Wellsprings of Wisdom is created, written, and tended as a labor of love by Rabbi Julie Hilton Danan. It is free to use and is not tied to one institution or denomination, while expressing the inclusive spirit of Jewish Renewal. Guest contributors (“fellow travelers”) from many backgrounds have generously shared their teachings, music, photography and more.
You are invited to use the introductory pages as a guide to this virtual retreat center and to enrich your experience.
