Practicing Non-Dual Judaism Tikkun Middot Monthly Drop-in Group – Canceled Oct. 11

Facilitated by Kevin Morgan Second Wednesday, June 14, July 12, August 9, Sept 13, Nov 8, Dec 13- 7:00-9:00 PM Location: Chochmat LaLev All are welcome! Free to members, $10 suggested for non-members A necessary condition for spiritual elevation is a continuous quest for a bond with the Creator. (Rambam, Ilchot Yesodot Torah) Are you a Jew with a Buddhist, Sufi, Advaita Vedanta or other Non-Dual practice or practices? Are you looking to see if it may be possible to integrate your Judaism with where your heart is taking you? If so, then please, come join us to explore that conversation together. This monthly drop-in class will combine reading, discussion, personal reflection and meditation in the context of living into non-duality for ourselves in a Jewish context. We will examine the thought of contemporary Jewish authors such as Martin Buber, Arthur Green, Jay Michaelson, Reb Zalman and Rami Shapiro, as well as work by non-dual authors such as Pema Chodron, Ramana Maharshi, Adyashanti and others. Our practices for Jewish non-dualism will be reflection and self-inquiry based on the concepts of Tikkun Middot/Mussar. Only, open-mindedness, a willingness to share your experience, a desire to pursue the truth for yourself and the intention to transform your life are prerequisites. Open to all, no matter what your background.
