“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement. ….get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”
Non-duality, the idea that everyone and everything is G-d, is part of many traditions, including Judaism. Kabbalists and early Hassidim, as well as contemporary Jewish thinkers have written much about this. Many modern Jews have pursued personal spiritual pathways that emphasize practices and an approach to living that seek to embody non-duality.
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 authors such as Martin Buber, Arthur Green, Jay Michaelson, Reb Zalman and Rami Shapiro, as well as work by Pema Chodron, Ramana Maharshi and Adyashanti. Our practices for Jewish non-dualism will be reflection and self-inquiry based on the concepts of Tikkun Middot/Mussar that the community has been engaged with.
Only open-mindedness, a willingness to share your experience and a desire to transform one’s life are prerequisites.
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.
