Spiritual Spot Light: Jewish Embodiment
Feeling constrained in your physical space and being? One way to alleviate that is to focus on the breath - the source of all life. A Jewish Rabbinic commentary on the book of Genesis, notes that in Hebrew the words for “soul” and “breath” are from the same root. Judaism has a lot to say about embodied practice.
The Baal Shem Tov - the founder of Hasidism ( A jewish spiritual revival movement in the territory of contemporary Western Ukraine during the 18th century) - found movement and embodiment in prayer so important that he believed that Movement in prayer allows one to get in touch with the Divine presence. Join us in MoveMeant to explore soulful breathing, personal prayer in movement infused by sacred chants and songs.
