Thank you to all who attended the above retreat, it was a great privilege to do the good work with you! Stay tuned for more retreats coming soon…
The course has developed over a decade of teaching meditation and down-to-earth spiritual practice deeply rooted in Jewish sources with wonderful partners like Pardes and Or HaLev.
Please contact me here for further questions.
Here’s some background info about my teaching practice. I’ve been teaching meditation for a decade. Some of the venues I’ve taught meditation include: Or HaLev retreats and classes, The Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, Homestead Jerusalem, Moishe House Jerusalem, Stanford University, Stanford Hillel, Moishe House London, Limmud NY, Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, Brondesbury Park Synagogue, Yeshivat Shvilei haTorah, Yeshivat Ma’ale Gilboa, Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School, Congregation Beth Am and independent retreats in my home village of Beit Zayit.
My speciality is integrating mindfulness with traditional Judaism, helping people of varied levels of knowledge and experience to discover the richness and authenticity of a living, breathing Judaism. This involves both text-based, discursive learning and practical, experiential learning. In short, I teach that Judaism demands of us, and enables us, to work for greater compassion and self-awareness. Through this work, all aspects of Judaism, and of life, come into clearer focus.
I have also completed the Jewish Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Course, taught by Rabbis Sheila Peltz Weinberg, Jeff Roth and Jordan Bendat-Appell. The course, which I highly recommend, is a 16-month journey through many kinds of meditative and pedagogical practices, and is a collaboration between the Institute for Jewish Spirituality and the Awakened Heart Project.
