The First-ever Breslov Research Institute

Women’s Mission to Uman
June 22 through June 27*

with Special Guests, BRI Founders, Breslov Pioneers Chaim and Gitta Kramer

The BRI Women’s Mission to Uman isn’t just a getaway but a life-changing journey of the soul designed for women like you who want to tap into the joy of spiritual adventure.

This is your personal odyssey: Strengthen your relationship with HaShem. Connect with the Tzaddik. Gain a richer understanding of who you are and where you’re headed.

Group leader Chaya Rivka Zwolinski of BreslovWoman.org, BRI and BreslovCampus.org will be your guide as you explore the rich gifts of the great Tzaddikim. You’ll discover the spiritual healing and blessings that heartfelt prayers recited at the graves of the Tzaddikim can bring. You’ll make hisbodedus among the very trees that Rebbe Nachman himself was inspired by. You’ll sing and dance, and so much more.

Beginners and long-time Breslovers alike will delight in a special Shabbaton with Breslov Research Institute’s founders, Chaim and Gitta Kramer. Reb Chaim will inspire you with the deepest Breslov Torahs and share a riveting personal account of the Breslov pioneers who broke through the Iron Curtain to Rebbe Nachman’s tziyun. Plus, you’ll have plenty of time to schmooze and spend quality time with teachers and fellow-travelers.

Make new friends while traveling on a luxury bus. Stay in clean and comfortable accommodations (the best Mezhibozh and Uman have to offer) and enjoy delicious meals.

But time’s running out! For the experience of a lifetime, one that will touch your heart and lift your soul, BOOK YOUR UMAN WOMEN’S TRIP TODAY.

Azamra: Your (Spiritual) Inner Child

question-1433662For Asarah B’teves—The Fast of Teves and Reb Nosson’s Yartzheit
Sponsored by the Schulman Family in memory of and appreciation for Reb Nosson on his yartzheit.

“…in generation after generation, there exists a shepherd who embodies the concept of “Moshe, the faithful shepherd.” This shepherd makes a mishkan. And know, the little schoolchildren receive their pure, untainted breath of their mouths from this mishkan. –Likutey Moharan 282

The true tzaddik of the generation takes all the nikudos tovos, the good points, he collects from each individual person, and with this accumulated good, builds a mishkan for Hashem. This sanctuary is the source of the breath of innocent children, who’ve never been tainted by sin. With this pure breath of goodness, young schoolchildren begin their first study of Torah.

As she learns, this child inhales and exhales goodness. She connects to the Tzaddik. This child pours her pure self into Torah learning and receives even more inspiration (both definitions apply.)

This child is each and every young child.

This child is also the psycho-spiritual concept of the inner child. Your inner child.

And though you recognize the term, don’t be fooled—psychology’s inner child is a mere doppelganger for the true inner child. First brought to Westerners’ attention by Jung, the distorted secular concept of the inner child has been employed in self-limiting, decadent, or destructive ways by new-age therapists ever since.

Your Inner Child

One way to get in touch with your spiritual inner child is to begin Continue reading Azamra: Your (Spiritual) Inner Child

Tu B’Shevat

Fruit_Stall_in_Barcelona_MarketThe Talmud (Taanis 8b) instructs us that when a person enters the barn to measure the new grain crop he should say the blessing: May it be Your will Lord our God, that You send blessing on the work of our hands. Then he begins to measure and says: Blessed be He who sends blessing into this pile of grain.

But if the person first measured the grain and only then recited the blessing, then his prayer is in vain. That’s because blessing can’t be found in something that’s already weighed out, measured or counted, but only in something hidden, something not yet assessed, or which the eye cannot see.

The concept of hiding what is precious to us until the appropriate season (time and place) when it is ready to blossom and fruit, is a concept that permeates the Jewish way of life. A baby is hidden inside her mother until it’s time to be born. A soul mate remains undetectable until Continue reading Tu B’Shevat

Truth And Joy Vs. Esau’s Yes-Man

Adar I by CRZ

Faith and truth are a shining face. They are joy and life. They are the gateway to length of days. 

But, falsehood shortens the days of a person’s life. Falsehood is death and idolatry, a dark face. 

—Likutey Eitzos, Collection of Rebbe Nachman’s Advice Compiled by Reb Nosson

Immersing yourself in the deeply-true teachings of Breslov Chassidus is life-changing. Want more? Have a conversation* with Hashem about the particular lesson you’re learning—it can bring you to a higher level of awareness and joy.

But, in order to really apply what you are learning to your life, you must be honest about the truths you are learning. It also helps to be honest about yourself.

Is it worth it?  Continue reading Truth And Joy Vs. Esau’s Yes-Man
