A Partner in Holiness
II. A Partner in Holiness
8 class sessions, Jan 8 - Mar 12
(no class on Feb 12 and Mar 5)
Are you longing for inspiration for a satisfying spiritual life of practice through the combination of contemporary mindfulness practice and Jewish spirituality? Surprisingly, the perspectives of the late 18th and 19th century Hasidic spiritual teachers offer a radically different Jewish theology that speaks directly to today’s spiritual seekers whose faith has been shattered by both modernity and the Holocaust. This course brings together the teachings of beloved Hasidic master Rabbi Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev and the practice of mindfulness meditation, through the work of my teacher, Rabbi Jonathan P. Slater. Our learning will rely heavily on the chevruta experience (learning in traditional study-pairs). This class will prepare you to continue to learn the weekly Torah portion with spiritual insights and corollary practices which you can incorporate into your life.
Cost: $180 ($220 for non-members)
