Practice the Practice: Breath Awareness

Hosted By: Applied Jewish Spirituality

This is the option to try the first session of an eight-session course with Yiscah Smith, as a free trial.

This course will address actual how-to techniques for cultivating mindfulness, based on traditional spiritual texts. Explore contemplative and meditative practices that bring the practitioner closer to their inner selves — the inner chamber within all of us, where the Divine Presence dwells.

Specifically, the curriculum focuses on cultivating two spiritual practices: breathing and quieting of the mind.
