The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU presents #BeWell, a wellness event series

March 9, 2021 at 5:00pm

From March 9 - May 25, the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU will present #BeWell, a series of five virtual workshops on health and wellness. This series will provide arts and culture programs that examine practices of mindfulness, healing, and wellbeing, through a range of offerings such as aromatherapy and Feng Shui workshops as well as more traditional modes like meditation and artmaking.
 #BeWell series aims to help people develop a mindfulness practice and learn about healing arts from wellness experts working in various fields. The series features events from “Feng Shui Your Home & Change Your Life,” which allows guests to explore Westernized Feng Shui and discover new ways to shift the energy of one’s home and life; to “The Magic of Artmaking and Mindfulness,” an hour-long workshop that works with participants to create wellbeing-themed mandalas with simple art materials.
“In this time of uncertainty and hardship, we at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU have been reflecting on our history and role as a place of refuge, community building, and resilience. Built from these values, the #BeWell Series aims to bring together members of our community, who come from many different backgrounds, yet are seeking similar things – to feel connected to a community, to develop a mindfulness practice tied to Jewish roots, and to cultivate a range of tools to cope with the increased stress and sense of isolation resulting from the pandemic,” said Luna Goldberg, education manager at JMOF-FIU.
The #BeWell series is sponsored by the
 Greater Miami Jewish Federation's Incubator Grant, FIU’s Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs, and the Program in the Study of Spirituality at the Green School. 
“We are keenly aware that it is especially important that people are nurturing their inner lives and well-being during these challenging and uncertain times,” said Erin Weston, assistant teaching professor in the Department of Religious Studies and director of the Program in the Study of Spirituality at FIU. “The Program in the Study of Spirituality at FIU is committed to helping our students and community members to find practices that facilitate personal growth and peace.”
