"B'Picha": A Taste of Jewish Meditation
Mira Niculescu What are Jewish spiritual practices and how can they uniquely enrich our relationship with ourselves, with others, and with Torah? This workshop includes several different types of Jewish meditation centering on the body, mind, and soul. Mira Niculescu is a Paris-born scholar in Sociology of Religion, as well as an artist, and a student of Jewish spirituality and meditation. For both beginners and experienced meditators, for those for whom Jewish prayer and mitzvot are foreign, and for those who are familiar but wish to refresh and deepen their approach to Torah.
