Jewish Meditation Practices for an Awakened Heart
with Rabbi Jeff Roth
at the Aleph Kallah at Franklin Pierce Uni in NH
One of the biggest obstacles to a compassionate heart is naiveté about the workings of our minds. This can result in a small sense of self whose functioning is protective, greedy and aggressive. Through Jewish meditation practices, it is possible to see more clearly the truth of each moment, thereby recognizing the Divine Presence. With mindful attention to body, feelings, moods, and their interactions (the four worlds), it is possible to cultivate wisdom and awaken the heart to compassion, which leads to kind actions. Participants will have ample time to experience the various core practices of this approach.
