Six Week Introduction to Jewish Mindfulness Meditation with Rabbi Andrea Goldstein
October 2018 – November 2018
*Registration Due by October 8
Have you ever felt so over-scheduled, that it is rare to find a moment to stop and catch your breath? Is your mind constantly racing with things you need to attend to or do? Have you ever worried that attachment to technology is making you more distracted and less present?Do you wish you were able to respond to events and emotions with greater compassion or intention?
If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might benefit from the practice of mindfulness meditation. Through the cultivation of moment-to-moment attention, mindfulness meditation trains the mind to allow it to be more spacious, perceptive and free. Mindfulness meditation helps us become less reactive and more intentional. We tap more easily into those wells of goodness within and learn to treasure each day for the miracle it is.
Jewish mindfulness meditation combines the core practices of mindfulness meditation with rich access to the meaning of Biblical stories, prayers and rabbinic texts allowing us to experience the wisdom of our tradition in deeper and more integrated ways. Jewish mindfulness meditation helps us to experience relaxation, stillness, healing, personal transformation and deep connection to our Source.
Wednesday Evenings, 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Jewish Mindfulness Center of St. Louis, 11645 Ladue Road.
