with all my heart

Whether you’re seeking relief from stress; you’re hoping for focus, clarity, and connection to a raw and vulnerable place deep within you; or you just want to start each day from a positive, humble, and grateful frame of mind, this course is for you.

Jewish wisdom teaches profound techniques to give wings to our emotions and words to our yearnings, allowing us to make contact and communicate with something larger than ourselves and feel comfort and shelter within a reality that’s more whole, more intense, more real, and more beautiful.

Lesson One:  Awakening Our Deepest Selves
Prayer is not a ritual; it is a contemplative tool that helps us balance urgent or bodily matters with what’s meaningful and important. It tunes us in to our deepest beliefs and feelings, giving them expression in our immediate lives.


Lesson Two:  The Kabbalah of Prayer
What’s the secret behind prayer’s mystical power? How does it affect the flow of cosmic energy? Can it alter the Divine will? Learn how to engage in this endeavor more effectively, and how to regard your most important wishes as part of your relationship with the Creator.


Lesson Three:  Discovering Nature’s Wonderland
Guided meditations in prayer transport us from a place of natural indifference to an awestruck, vivid awareness with heartfelt marveling at the rich spiritual meaning in our surroundings.


Lesson Four:  Toward Transcendence
Moving from the manifest to the transcendent, our meditative journey brings us to realize how, in the grand scheme, we are but negligible dots. Yet, despite our tininess, we serve as agents in a mission of infinite import.


Lesson Five:  Total Surrender
At the pinnacle of inspiration and intimacy with the Creator, what comes next? More inspiration? No. Letting go. When the ego loses its sense of identity and is absorbed in its greater purpose, it is, paradoxically, best suited to appeal for its needs.


Lesson Six:  The Power of the Community
Is there a way to bring the exhilarating passion of a secluded hilltop meditation into a synagogue, when praying with a group and prayer book? We explore practical tips for synchronizing a heartfelt spiritual journey with a communal synagogue experience.
