#1 — A Jewish Meditation from the Code of Jewish Law
The first level of meditation instruction appears on the opening page of the Code of Jewish Law (Shulchan Arukh). It is an obligation that takes hold at the moment of awakening.
This THIRD video teaching on Jewish Meditation, called LABELING AS MEDITATION TOOL explains how to use the meditative calm for a different kind of inner work. It is possible to use the negative spaces–the distractions from focus–to gather precious information about our personality.
This FIFTH video teaching on Jewish meditation explains how meditation, and in particular the practice called Speaking Truth to Lie, is a powerful agent of Tikun Olam (mending the world). This illustrated video teaching describes the kabbalistic underpinnings of this discipline.
One of the most difficult and subtle challenges of a spiritual path is the matter of “strange fire” which we’ll define as: “taking pleasure from something that violates one’s own moral code.” It makes sense to avoid temptation whenever possible, but that’s a strategy that needs to be augmented with an equal (perhaps even greater) measure of inner work, i.e., meditation.
