Video: The Simple Truth About Travel to The Tzaddik

In this short BreslovCampus.org video, Meir Elkabas explains why we travel to the Tzaddik and what psycho-spiritual challenges to expect when we think about going.

Would you like to travel to Rebbe Nachman in Uman? Reb Noson in Breslov? The Baal Shem Tov in Mezhibuzh? Rav Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev? Find out about our upcoming women’s trip here or email me at umanwomen @breslov.org.

Getting Unstuck

IMG_3785How 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?

Who do we connect to when we feel a lack of connection?

Who do we turn to  when it seems like there is nowhere to turn?

The Torah teaches us to turn to Hashem and to turn to the Tzaddikim.

There are three stages of connection to the tzaddikim and by means of these three stages, everything is rectified. —Kitzur Likutey Moharan, 4

Stage One: Continue reading Getting Unstuck

Rosh Hashanah On My Mind-Video

Rosh Hashanah On My Mind is based on a short but pithy lesson of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov in Likutey Moharan II. ( Lesson 94. ) This lesson focuses on the second and third “roshim” (heads) that come together on Rosh Hashanah; the three Kabbalistic dimensions; what to focus on during Rosh Hashanah; practical steps we can take on Rosh Hashanah; and the power of joy.

Here’s class two of the three-part course. It’s easy to follow along, and I give a brief overview of the first class at the beginning. Class one had technical difficulties and didn’t record, but I created an 8 minute video overview of class one which you can view on the course page.

Wrapping Your Head Around Rosh Hashana

Starting this Monday night, September 12, you’re invited to a new, three-week class, Rosh Hashanah On My Mind, live on BreslovCampus.org with Chaya Rivka Zwolinski.

8:00 PM Eastern time, 5:00 PM Pacific time.

Rebbe Nachman famously said: My very essence is Rosh Hashana. It’s therefore no surprise that Breslov Chassidut is packed with teachings on the head of the Jewish year. In this class we focus on the motif of the head, especially as it pertains to making a fresh start to your year—and your life.

Topics include:
The three heads that come together on Rosh Hashana
The Tzaddik, the head of the Children of Israel
The Head of the Year
It is all in Your Head: Gathering your thoughts and settling your mind
The seven lamps of the head
The Three Dimensions
New beginnings and joy

Monday, Sept. 12th – Sept. 26th (3 weeks)

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.
