Jewish Meditation Group: A Hasidic Approach to Jewish Meditation based on the Teachings of the Maggid of Mezeritch and other Hasidic Masters, in theory (haskafah) and practice. This is not a class! It is a group to create and support a chevre of meditators in our community.  Beginners can come to learn the basics.  Those more experienced can practice a quiet meditation you already do and discover more of the wealth of our contemplative tradition.

We will cover:

  • Preparatory Practices
  • Quieting/Settling the Mind (hashkatah)
  • Meditative Mussar (yeshuv da’at): Strengthening Positive Qualities (middot)
  • Developing Meditative Concentration
  • Thinking Deeply (nachshav ha-ruchaniyut) and Transforming Confusion (aliyat machshavot zarot)
  • Experiencing Unity
