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.   Jewish Mindfulness adds the teachings of our tradition to deepen the meditative experience.

This course, led by Rabbi George Gittleman, 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 will serve as a guiding theme, to deepen the meditative experience.  No previous experience is necessary. 

A graduate of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality's Jewish Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Program, Rabbi George has developed both Buddhist and Jewish meditative practices over the past two decades.  Where indicated on the schedule, sessions will feature a guest leader.
