The Three-Cornered Shoe is a unique literary journal featuring creative writing including personal essays, fiction, poetry and letters by some of the talented writers in the BreslovWoman.org contemplative creative writing workshops. Like the three-cornered shoe in Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s famous tale, The Sophisticate and the Simpleton, each contribution to this journal is a unique expression and product of the spiritual self of the individual writer, inspired by stories from Rebbe Nachman’s Sippurey Maasiot as well as his shorter tales.
In addition to the creative work by the contributors, the journal contains a lesson and writing prompt for you, so you can try your hand at finding yourself in some of the Rebbe’s teachings.
Reb Noson, Rebbe Nachman’s leading disciple, tells us to find ourselves in Rebbe Nachman’s works, and these writers and artists have done so, writing about topics that are meaningful to them as well as the reader. Themes addressed in this collection include relationships with family, friends, self and God; sadness and joy; suffering and redemption; spirituality and prayer; simplicity and humility; creativity and dreams; one’s past, present and future; the Land of Israel, Torah, and much more.
Rebbe Nachman’s stories are literary, psychospiritual and mystical masterpieces unlike any others, and in these pages, you’ll get a glimpse of their ability to touch the individual’s inner world. His stories offer wisdom that transcends self, time and space, and most important, are a catalyst towards spiritual healing. The essays, poetry, fiction and art in this journal shows the journey towards this healing.
