BreslovCampus.org Class for Women Exile during the Three Weeks
To some, this is one of the most startling teachings in the Breslov panoply. Simplicity and innocence are not glamorous. And they don’t hold much appeal for a certain kind of brilliant person, the kind whose mind is a natural playground for intellectual hijinks. Continue reading What’s Greater Than Wisdom?
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)
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.

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.

Did you know your head is a menorah?
Your intellectual power is the oil and your 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 nostrils, and mouth are the 7 lamps. When you sanctify the 7 lamps of your menorah, you radiate light.
The Biur HaLikutim explains that when a person awakens herself to spirituality and sanctifies her physical senses and functions, she opens herself up to Divine grace and flow, bringing herself to a higher form of spiritual awareness and intellect.
The face of any menorah, including yours, shines in proportion to the amount of light its lamps radiate.
This video class is based on the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov and Anatomy of the Soul by Chaim Kramer.
