NEW Hashkata: Jewish Meditation
Learn the approach to meditation which comes from the heart of Jewish mysticism.
Instructor Matthew Gindin has been teaching meditation for ten years. Since 2008 he has been teaching a Jewish form of meditation first taught by the Aish HaKodesh, Kalonymous Kalman Shapira (d. 1942), the Rebbe of the Warsaw Ghetto. In this four-week course we will begin each evening by looking at an aspect of the history of meditation in Judaism, followed by guided meditation in the method of "hashkata" (quietness). Suitable for beginners and beneficial to the experienced.
