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.

How can we get out of our bitter heaviness? How can we release our heavy hearts? What can we do when we’re paralyzed by indecision? How can we know which path to take—in career? Spirituality? Relationships?

There are three stages of connection to the tzaddikim and by means of these three stages, everything is rectified. —Kitzur Likutey Moharan, 4
In this video class from the Freedom From Fear series, we discuss the Power of a Spiritual Sigh, the Biblical tale of Jonah and the Big Fish, What Happens when we Cry Out to Hashem for Help, and more.

It can be difficult to remove that veil because it’s as if we’ve created a different reality, so much so that sometimes we begin to believe in the veil more than in the deep truth it conceals.
Rosh Hashana is the day of judgment for all humankind. It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve—in other words, the birthday of everyone’s great, great, great (and so on), grandparents. It is a day of awe and fear and also a day of celebration.
Rosh Hashana is also a day of great self-awareness. It is a time to recognize who we are as individuals, as members of a community and the Jewish people, and as members of humanity. It is a day to invest fully in becoming aware of our relationship with God.
Pretty heady stuff for us mere mortals. But we know that God doesn’t give us anything impossible to do. So, how do we “get there?”
