Breslov Woman Video: Understanding The Human Heart

Rebbe Nachman of Breslov and Jewish sages throughout the millennia have long understood that the heart has thoughts of its own. Exploring Torah, we can begin to identify the psychospiritual functions of the heart.

What insights into self-image can Ezekiel’s chariot offer us? How do we mirror the Creation in our hearts? Why do we feel that the location of emotional suffering is in the heart? In what way are our hearts divided? How can we begin to heal “heartache?” We discuss this and more, in the first class of this semester’s Healing Dance of Body and Soul at BreslovCampus.org.

NEW BreslovWoman Classes & Workshops, NYC Live & Online

grunge-heart-ii-1170745Free, Online Breslov Class for Women at BreslovCampus.org, The Healing Dance of Body & Soul

Please join me at BreslovCampus.org for The Healing Dance of Body and Soul, Monday evenings at 8 pm. The new semester begins January 23 through February 27.

We recognize that there are deeper truths in common idioms such as: She is broken-hearted. Their excuse sticks in my throat. I felt it in my bones. We instinctively sense that the body has messages for us beyond the physical and even beyond the emotional.

In part three of The Healing Dance of Body and Soul, we’ll continue to explore the reasons that God houses our soul in this brilliantly complex home we call “my body”, the paradoxical interplay between body and soul, and a fresh yet ancient outlook on health and healing. Topics this semester include: Holistic healing and Jewish mysticism; Healing the Heart; Emotions; Lungs; The Neck: Exile and Exodus; The Throat and the Voice; Our Image; Flesh; Bone; And more. No prerequisites required, course is open to everyone (women only.)

Please be sure to check out the other wonderful free Breslov classes, both live and recorded, at BreslovCampus.org.

647343913-def-sLive in Manhattan This Sunday, January 29, 10:00 am through 5:00 pm, the JCC of Manhattan with Rabbi Naftali Citron of The Carlebach Shul are hosting their very popular Annual Day of Kabbalah learning with the theme, “The Beautiful Maiden Without Eyes.” 

Professor Moshe Idel, Emeritus Professor of Jewish Thought, Hebrew University, and Senior Researcher, Shalom Hartman Institute, will be keynote speaker. Other speakers include Dr. David Ariel, Shimona Tzukernik, Rabbi DovBer Pinson, Dr. Nathaniel Berman, Rabbi Naftali Citron and me. I’ll be teaching two afternoon Breslov-based workshops (please contact me or the JCC for the schedule.)

Workshop 1 The Maiden Without Eyes: Beyond Logic and Reason

When Rebbe Nachman’s daughter Chaya was suffering with an eye infection, he taught Torah 62 (Likutey Moharan) in order to draw down healing for her. In this lesson, he leads us on a beautiful, winding path in his interpretation of the Zoharic phrase, “A beautiful maiden who has no eyes.” The Rebbe reveals the beautiful maiden to be the healing belief called emunah (faith), which lies beyond logic and reason. Using the text from Lesson 62 and the story, The Lost Princess, as a jumping-off point, we’ll discuss the two main types of emunah, how the energy of emunah is relevant today, and answer the question: How do I begin to implement the power of emunah in my life, especially when I’m struggling or in pain? 

This workshop is based on exegetic and revelatory texts and commentary including Likutey Moharan and Sippurey Maasiot (Rebbe Nachman)and Likutey Tefillot (Reb Noson), and others.

Workshop 2 The Maiden Without Eyes: Conscious Vision

Green tea or soda? Steamed kale or a donut? Every day we make choices about what to eat, and we know that these choices affect our bodily health. But we also make choices about what we see and these choices dramatically affect our spiritual health. In Likutey Moharan 36, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s “beautiful maiden with no eyes” shines a light on the psychospiritual dangers of seeing as the masses do. In this workshop you’ll be given tools, including two types of Chassidic meditation, to help you develop your own personally relevant approach to conscious vision.

This workshop is based on texts which offer a blend of both mystical and practical wisdom including Likutey Moharan, Sippurey Maasiot, Sefer HaMiddot/The Aleph-Bet Book (Rebbe Nachman of Breslov); Likutey Tefillot/The 50th Gate (Reb Noson); Sefer Charedim (a 15th century deontological classic by R. Elazar Azikri);  the Talmud Bavli; the Baal Shem Tov on Pirkei Avot; and others.

Please note: There is a fee for the entire day. I suggest you buy tickets in advance as this event is very popular. Breakfast will be served and a kosher lunch will be available for purchase. The classes at the JCC are open to men and women. For more information on this program please email Susie Kessler, Director of Makom: Meditation + Spirituality and Adult Support Programs at the JCC or call 646.505.5726.

Please contact me if you have any questions about the topic or format (or to book your own event).
