Whether you meditate every day or have never figured out how to even approach this valuable life tool, please join us.
We will be speaking about Judaism, meditation, and mindfulness, all which can contribute to leading a richer and more meaningful life.
Our speakers are Rabbi Josh Feigelson, PhD, the Executive Director of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality (IJS) and Rabbi Wilfond, who will discuss current practices and terminology as well as historical traditions. For those who are unfamiliar with IJC, its programs combine contemplative Jewish traditions with mindfulness meditation, yoga, singing, and prayer -- all focused on engaging the heart, body and soul.
IJS teaches people who are seeking a deeper, richer and more meaningful life experience Jewish spiritual practices that are grounded in mindfulness.
We do this by reclaiming texts and practices from contemplative Jewish traditions, including mindfulness meditation, yoga, singing, prayer and working with middot, better aligning our behaviors with our innermost values— all taught within a Jewish context.
Some people come to IJS because they want to start a mindfulness practice to add a greater sense of meaning and connection to their life.
Others are seeking more from their Jewish practice. They want a deeper, more holistic relationship to Judaism – one that isn’t just intellectual but also engages the heart, body and soul.
Still others, including clergy, educators and lay leaders, come to IJS to explore and strengthen their own connection to God and the Jewish spiritual tradition and to learn tools and programs they can bring home to their communities.
IJS online courses and retreats offer you Jewish spiritual practices you can use to cultivate awareness; connect with greater authenticity to yourself, others, and God; access wisdom and resilience; deepen your connection to Judaism; and help you find greater meaning in life.
