Jewish Mindfulness adds the teachings of our tradition to deepen the meditative experience. No previous experience is necessary to attend.

 

Are we happy? Are we living the life we want to live? Mindfulness Meditation is the practice of cultivating our attention to the present moment. As we learn to quiet our minds, we see our truth more clearly, and open a path to living a fuller, happier, healthier life.

These courses, led by Rabbi George Gittleman, Alissa Hirschfeld and occasional guest leaders, will include teaching, meditation instruction, and periods of silence.

By practicing together, we’ll enhance our ability to listen to the voice within and expand our sense of interconnectedness. The seasons of the Jewish calendar serve as a guiding theme, to deepen the meditative experience.
