Mini Meditation Sessions with Elliott Familant

Friday, December 3, 2021 at 8:00 am

Elliott Familant is leading a weekly mini-meditation session each Friday morning. These sessions are brief, no more than 30 minutes and consist of a short reading, 18 minutes of silent meditation, a tiny bit of discussion, and then Kaddish. This is an easy way to inject an island of peace into your week and will help you feel calm and centered for the rest of your day. If you are new to meditation, this can be a gentle introduction to the practice with a Jewish twist. Something special occurs when you meditate or pray as a group. The ancient Rabbis suggest that the spirit of G-d herself appears under these circumstances. Join us and find out.
