At Daat Elyon, students practice Jewish meditation and contemplative prayer, as well as study spiritual wisdom. They also undertake the crucial work of self-transformation – the labor of turning themselves into the divine instruments that they are meant to be.
In January 2018 our work took on a new dimension with the opening of our Israeli home on Disraeli Street in the beautiful Talbia neighborhood of Jerusalem.
The heart of the center is the meditation room, which has been dedicated for spiritual work and is already alive and radiant. Here students come to meditate, to study spiritual wisdom, to meet with Rabbi Yoel. In this space we have begun a regular schedule of meditations, classes and retreats. In the future, as the work evolves, we hope students will become teachers as well, and that other spiritual teachers will become part of the Daat Elyon team. The Jerusalem center is the next step in our vision of a school for spiritual training.
At Daat Elyon, students practice Jewish meditation and contemplative prayer, as well as study spiritual wisdom. They also undertake the crucial work of self-transformation—the labor of turning themselves into the divine instruments that they are meant to be.
At Daat Elyon, students come to learn how to get in touch with their own divinity—how to tap into the tremendous potential that lies within the heart of every human being. They learn how to build a personal relationship with God, to bring the Divine Presence into every moment of their lives.
At Daat Elyon, students have the opportunity to expand their consciousness and broaden their understanding. The Center emphasizes spiritual openness, universal vision, and the innate divinity of every human being. It is a place where students learn to see themselves as part of the community of Israel as well as the spiritual fellowship of all humankind.
Daat Elyon is a place where people can come to “live the life”, either as integral members of the Daat Elyon spiritual community, or as visitors who drop in to recharge and get a boost forward on their journey.
