The Traveling Uman-Women’s Boutique

Know! a person must travel to the Tzaddik in search of what she’s lost. For prior to a person coming out into the air of this world, she is taught and shown all that she needs to do, work at, and achieve in this world. But as soon as she comes out into the air of the world, she immediately forgets it, as our Sages teach.  —Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (LM 188)

BRI Uman Experience for Women, Summer, 2017

We were all sitting in the airport in Kiev, except for two travelers. They were still in baggage claim, hoping their missing suitcases would appear. But the suitcases didn’t appear.

I had spoken to both these women at length before the trip. I knew that traveling to the Tzaddik was no ordinary adventure for either of them. I prayed that nothing would go awry. And now this. Continue reading The Traveling Uman-Women’s Boutique

This Elul Tap Into Your Hidden Connection To God: FREE Workshop

chickYou’re Invited!

Dear Breslov Woman,

Please join me for THINK SMALL: Tapping Into Our Hidden Connection To God, a free mini-workshop online for women only. It’s tonight, Tuesday, August 25 at 8:00 PM (EST); 5:00 PM (PST) at BreslovCampus.org.

This Elul workshop offers a timely preparation for
Rosh Hashanah. We’ll explore a unique Breslov perspective on connecting emotionally to Hashem by following His lead. It allows you to experience the freedom to let go of limiting self-beliefs so you can go to your next level of spiritual growth.

Based in part on an important theme in one of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s most lyrical Torahs, LM 219, Beetza Emrato, together we’ll learn how each of us has an essential, personal role to play in God’s Kingly coronation. How do we do it? We “think small.”

Time permitting, we’ll explore the following:

  • The story of God’s Royal Robe
  • A practical way to more fully experience Hashem in your personal life
  • Why cultivating smallness nurtures true greatness
  • The majesty of Rosh Hashana: A visualization
  • A Breslov Story
  • We plan to allow time for discussion on how to experience an “Uman, Rosh Hashanah” no matter where we are!

Beginners are welcome! Please share this post with your friends, sisters, moms, daughters.

*This special Elul class for women is sponsored in memory of Esther Faiga Bas Yitzchok by her grandchildren.

Are There Breslov Mantras?

1280px-Goe_Platz_der_Synagoge_DetailDear BreslovWoman,

In the phone class on how to take control of our thoughts, you asked us to choose lines from Tehillim (Psalms), the siddur (prayer book), or even our own thoughts. We would use these as “replacement thoughts” anytime we’re having a negative thought.

I know what kinds of negative thoughts I have frequently. But I can’t decide what kinds of thoughts I need to replace them with. I’ve looked in books and tried to write my own, but it’s not working.

I want to stop the repetitive negative worried thoughts I have every day. Please help me – I need some new thoughts!

Aren’t there any Breslov sayings I could use?

Change Your Thoughts–Change Your Life. Really.

Fairytale Forest - SunburstYikes. I forgot to press “record” for the mini phone-workshop on “Healing Your Emotions with the Teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov” last night. So, I’m posting a few notes from the discussion:

Hashem wants our hearts. Our hearts are the seat of our feelings, our minds are the home of our thoughts.

Most people feel that their thoughts and/or feelings just “happen.” They do not realize that they can decide what to think and by doing so, transform negative feelings to positive feelings.

Our thoughts precede our feelings, not the other way around. Sometimes it may seem like we just suddenly feel something, whether positive or negative, but because the process happens so quickly, we don’t realize that the thought comes first.

In order to change our emotional reality, we must first  Continue reading Change Your Thoughts–Change Your Life. Really.
