Presenter: Rabbi Joanna Katz
Event & Date: Jewish Meditation Teacher Training 2014
Joanna talks about how each of us has something precious and unique that is only ours
to unfold in this practice. That a spiritual practice is a practice that allows the heart and mind to settle. Joanna teaches that spirituality, which is an essential part of Judaism, is always striving for the presence of God, and the fashioning of a life of holiness appropriate to that striving. Joanna asks: how we able to be open to the presence of God in a state of great adversity. Being open to the presence of God is directly related to the state of one’s own heart.
