A Sweet New Year

pomegranate_dsw-1In Class 3 of Rosh Hashanah On My Mind we prepare for the Yom Tov with a discussion of how we can tap into the power of our own thoughts, and continuing with real-life tips on how to apply the teachings of Likutey Moharan II, Lesson 94. (Fast forward to the 5 minute mark–the BRI/BreslovCampus assistant had no time to edit this video.)

Good Shabbos and Kesiva V’Chasima Tova, may you be blessed with a Very Sweet Year.

Wrapping Your Head Around Rosh Hashana

Starting this Monday night, September 12, you’re invited to a new, three-week class, Rosh Hashanah On My Mind, live on BreslovCampus.org with Chaya Rivka Zwolinski.

8:00 PM Eastern time, 5:00 PM Pacific time.

Rebbe Nachman famously said: My very essence is Rosh Hashana. It’s therefore no surprise that Breslov Chassidut is packed with teachings on the head of the Jewish year. In this class we focus on the motif of the head, especially as it pertains to making a fresh start to your year—and your life.

Topics include:
The three heads that come together on Rosh Hashana
The Tzaddik, the head of the Children of Israel
The Head of the Year
It is all in Your Head: Gathering your thoughts and settling your mind
The seven lamps of the head
The Three Dimensions
New beginnings and joy

Monday, Sept. 12th – Sept. 26th (3 weeks)

Main Text: Likutey Moharan II, Lesson 94 and other Breslov sources

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.
