Shiviti: Creating a Jewish Meditation Practice
A shiviti is a visual aid for meditation and contemplation, using Hebrew names of G-d. Every Hebrew letter has a divine vibration that is amplified when used in divine names. The divine name can be used as a portal to devekut (union). When we meditate in this way, we are carried into deep silence and unitive consciousness.
In this workshop you will create your own shiviti with a name of G-d that resonates with your soul. You will take home a daily meditation practice that includes chanting, repetition of the divine name, and awareness of the breath.
No previous experience with art or meditation are necessary. Materials will be provided. Free of charge, registration coming.
