Embodied spiritual practices are found in virtually all religious traditions. Jews have practiced meditation and chanting, for example, since the Bible. Join us for a session of meditation through a Jewish lens, during which we will use the tools of Mindfulness and body awareness as they emerge through Jewish sources.
Andrew will begin with a short 10 minute all-levels yoga warm up before introducing Rabbi Liben.
Rabbi Daniel Liben is the spiritual leader of Temple Israel in Natick (www.tiofnatick.org).
The event is FREE.
About Rabbi Daniel Liben:
Rabbi Daniel Liben was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary in 1983, and became the spiritual leader of Temple Israel of Natick, Massachusetts, in 1991. He is a past president of the Massachusetts Board of Rabbis, and of the New England Region Rabbinical Assembly. After completing the Institute for Jewish Spirituality’s (IJS) two-year program for Rabbis, Dan has made the exploration of prayer as a spiritual practice a cornerstone of his Rabbinic work.
Dan spent several years exploring mindfulness at Elat Chayyim, where his teachers were Sylvia Boorstein, Jeff Roth, Sheila Weinberg and Norman Fisher. He subsequently completed IJS’s Jewish Meditation Teacher Training Program (1 and 3), and taught meditation to Rabbis for the Institute for two years.
This year, Dan is completing Bekhol Levavkha, a two-year training program in Spiritual Direction, and is co-facilitating a Wise Aging group at Temple Israel of Natick.
