We’ve been developing and producing Breslov workshops, classes and programs since 2010. For more information about any of the following workshops or programs, please contact crzbreslov@ gmail.com.
The Contemplative Writing™ workshop began in 2016, with classes based on Rebbe Nachman’s Sippurey Maasiot (stories) as well as other Breslov sources. It’s offered women the opportunity to write from the soul, and share their creative expression with others. This workshop has been taught as a single-time event or over several classes in a course at JCC Manhattan, other public venues and private homes, as well as on ZOOM several times per year. Several hundred participants have made this our most popular workshop.
The Azamra Program™ was developed several years ago to offer women an immersive half or whole day program based on Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s most famous teaching, Azamra (LM 282). Past programs have included lectures on the Four Azamra Principles, the Holy Self-Esteem™ workshop, guided meditations, visual artistry workshops, music/song/dance workshops, improvisation, brunch, and more. Other Breslov teachers have joined Chaya Rivka for this exciting program in public venues.
The Holy Self-Esteem™ workshop started in 2014 and is based on the teachings of Rebbe Nachman’s foundational lesson, Azamra (LM 282). This workshop encourages women to “seek and find the good points”, in other people and themselves. Those who have participated have reported lasting, positive changes to their self-image.
Special Holiday Programs & Shabbatons have been ongoing for several years. These have included programs for Elul and Rosh Hashana, Sukkot and Rebbe Nachman’s Hillula (Chol Hamoed Sukkot), Chanukah, Tu B’Shvat, Purim and Pesach. Previously, as Director of BRI Women (Breslov Research Institute’s women’s program), Chaya Rivka also taught classes, workshops and led Shabbatons, which we hope to begin again under the auspices of BreslovWoman in the future, אי״ה.
A sample of other existing workshops and classes include Rebbe Nachman’s Positive Psychology, Breslov Wisdom for the Wise Elder, Rebbe Nachman’s Approach to Healing, and many, many more.
