(A) Meditation Events

Building a Jewish Meditation Practice
At the center of the contemplative life is our daily practice. In this workshop, we will explore the five categories of meditation techniques: stilling the mind, visualization, concentration, mantra chanting and contemplation.

The Art of Expanding Our Inner Awareness
The heart of the meditation process is the expansion of our awareness. Meditation lifts us from the finite to the Infinite, from the temporal to the Eternal.

The Role of Meditation in a Jewish Spiritual Life
This workshop explores how we use meditation to deepen the traditional prayers and rituals and develop a personal relationship with God.

Living the Life of Jewish Meditation
Meditation is more than just a daily spiritual practice; it is a whole way of life that unfolds in five stages: preparation, intention, forging a connection, holding the link, and merging with our spiritual source.

Awakening the Divine Within Us
In this workshop, we will learn how to awaken our innate divinity and get in touch with our true self.

(B) Kabbalah Events

Walking the Path of the Jewish Mystic
This session explores how we use the seminal teachings of the Kabbalistic tradition to deepen our self-knowledge and live our lives with greater meaning and awareness.

Kabbalah, Meditation and the Nature of Consciousness
This session outlines the Kabbalistic understanding of the nature of the mind and the processes that take place during meditation as expressed in the Ari’s teachings on the evolution of the soul and the structure of the Cosmos.

Kabbalah: Roadmap to Inner Experience
Kabbalah is an experience-based teaching that guides seekers on the path, with each area of study – sefirot, the soul, the olamot and the partzufim – providing another dimension of the knowledge needed on our journey.

Our Selves, our Souls and our World
This talk discusses how we connect our daily life and our individual evolution with the evolution of the Jewish people, the whole of humanity and the greater Cosmos.

Yoga, Kabbalah and the Biblical Prophets
This talk delves into the inner life and training of the Biblical prophets using the teaching of Kabbalah and Yoga as our guides.

Kabbalistic Understanding of the Human Condition and our Place in the Cosmos
This talk investigates the mystical truths that underlie the human condition and the larger spiritual reality that infuses our existence with meaning, hope and purpose.
