Giving to others in our many roles as parents, adult children of elderly parents, health providers, clergy, teachers and volunteers can be rewarding and draining. In order to be there for others, we also need to learn to love ourselves fully as a friend, an aspect of the central teaching of the Torah expounded on one foot by Hillel the Elder, “Love your friend as yourself.”
As we enter the new month of Nissan and prepare for Pesach, what better time is there to focus on our own personal liberation and renewal? In this six-session Zoom series, you will learn and practice the art of Jewish mindfulness meditation, a comforting, loving and strength-building practice to help restore a sense of balance and inner peace and refresh the soul. Each class will include text study related to the Jewish calendar and weekly parasha, meditation instruction, meditation practice and sharing within a supportive chevruta/friendship circle.
All levels of experience are welcome. Three optional, 10-minute, one-on-one private check-ins between classes with the instructor will be offered. Sliding fee available.
