for Native Hebrew Spirit
at last, a gathering place wherein the essence of tribal hebrew ways are recovered and integrated into contemporary jewish practice. a place without institutional bounds on the cultivation and immediate expression of the sacred. whoever is moved to be present is welcome.
the Hebrew word “omana’ya” could translate as faith-artist-of-yah. it is both an ordination title (for the hebrew ritual artist) and the name of our center for native hebrew spirit.
our intention is to revitalize essences and wisdoms of hebraic spirituality within contemporary and immediately relevant ritual and prayer. we re-source the pre-judaic (pre-religious establishment) native hebrew spirit to tap the essence of our ancestral ways:
- attentive & direct experience of divinity
- sensuous & sacred embodiment
- attunement with nature & seasons

the omana’ya center hosts kabalat shabbat, holy day rituals & enrichment workshops, source kabala classes, as well as individual spiritual guidance sessions with keren. echoing of the hebrew ancestry, our rituals and teachings walk in this lineage by engaging the essences of full embodiment with song, music and dance, spontaneous prayer in word and gesture, connection with natural elements, and hebrew as a mystical language.
by keren’s ritual artistry, ceremonies are immediate and co-created including music, movement, ritual gesture, prayer and teachings. come celebrate, honor, place attention, and pray with us, touching both earthbound and heavenward ecstatic experience! all events are by donation and open to people of all religious/spiritual affiliations.
we are revitalizing contemporary jewish practice with a dose of its own ancient tribal root-medicine.
see video to the right, an omana’ya documentary, to learn more about how omana’ya was initiated and what it is initiating….
not unlike other worldwide shamanic traditions, this ancient, feminine-balanced tribal knowledge is a resource for maturing consciousness, self-integration and peace work. by nature, omana’ya ways are inviting, cooperative, supporting of the intuitive, non-invasive and serve to unify the self while freeing the dissonance caused by doubt, fear, and other emotional pain. we attend and act for self healing and wholeness as well as for the integrity and healing of the lineage.
