Shabbat Tent is a space at festivals to unplug from the digital age and experience a transcendent connection that is both tribal and harmonious with all humanity. Through creating an “oasis of chill” based on Shabbat hospitality and mindfulness, providing nourishment for the body and soul, Shabbat Tent inspires guests to practice digital-detox rituals year-round.
This digital, ultra-connected age has also increased alienation, burn-out, disunity and an epidemic of toxic addictions. Meaningful and soulful relationships and rituals are succumbing to material pursuits and workaholic-ism. Digital detox programs, an effort to counter these trends, has made inroads and offered some solutions, but the pace and spread of ills hasn’t tapered off. Those efforts are too limited and exclusive to counteract the enormity of the problem. What if there were a way to create a widespread adoption of digital-detoxification rituals and healthier, soulful living?
Through creating a space at music, film and culture celebrations, Shabbat Tent inspires all of us in making a healthier and more harmonious world, where faced-paced digital lives are balanced by nourishment of the soul and meaningful relationships and rituals.
