December 2, 2021

In this series of videos for Hanukkah, Emily offers a different teaching and writing exercise for “getting to know your candles” before lighting Hanukkah candles each night. Corresponding to the number of candles we light each night, these teachings and writing prompts are to help you get in touch with your personal intention and cultivate a unique relationship with your candles each night. The 5th night of Hanukkah reminded Emily of the hamsa, the sign of the protecting hand of God. Let’s  commune with the archangels, protection, and our guidance before lighting our 5 candles.
