Jewish contemplative practice (mindfulness/heartfulness) can be the most direct vehicle for Divine Realization—the recognition of the Divine Presence as our true nature. In this “no-experience-required” class, we will learn meditative practices that bring about an awakening in consciousness. This awakening transforms our perceptions of reality, too often characterized by a mistaken dualistic perspective. We will focus on practices that open the heart, leading to wisdom, compassion and kindness. Our work together will include silent practices, chant, didactic presentations, questions and sharing, all designed to help us direct our attention into the present moment of experience, which is the only place the Divine Presence can be experienced.
