Jewish meditation is a millennia-old series of practices based on breath, body, movement, prayer and text to help us become more powerfully aware of ourselves and our relationship with G!d.
Also, meditation is associated with greater health, happiness, gratitude and satisfaction in life. We’re into that. Join us for The Sangha (Mishkan Meditation Minyan), facilitated by seasoned meditation teachers from Mishkan Chicago.
A sangha is a group of people devoted to doing spiritual practice in community. The Mishkan Meditation Minyan will gather on Wednesday evenings to sit in silent meditation together and to process what’s coming up in our practice— challenges, new insights & questions. You don’t have to commit to being there every single week, but regular attendance will be the most beneficial for your own practice and for others. The group is free, and drop-ins are welcome. Newbies can join our beginners intro session the first Wed. of every month, 6:45pm, with in-depth instruction from Rabbi Lauren.
Who: Facilitated by Rabbi Lauren, Jacob Kaufman & David Gottlieb
When: Wednesday evenings from October 18th, 7:00-8:00 PM
Where: Mishkan Chicago
4001 N Ravenswood Ave #108
What To Bring: Chairs, meditation cushions, and yoga mats will be provided. The chairs are your basic folding chairs, so feel free to bring any additional blankets, cushions, or supports you may need.
The practice of mindfulness will be taught in an easy to access Jewish framework that aims to help you open:
Your eyes, to the revelation contained in your moment-to-moment experience.
Your mind, to greater calm, clarity, and insight.
Your heart, to greater compassion for self and other, so that a world of hesed/compassion can be built, each day, from the inside out.
