Losing and Regaining Spiritual Focus: The Wandering Mind and Meditation
Hasidic masters deemed all passages in the Torah to have eternal spiritual significance, even seemingly outdated ones like the "cities of refuge." A teaching of the Apter Rav on parashat (weekly Torah portion) Masei’ will illuminate how a re-consideration of this topic in the Talmud can be transformed into a meditation technique for restoring one’s spiritual consciousness.

The Dragon in the Abyss, the Id in the Unconscious: Kabbalah, Myth and Psychoanalysis
Jewish mythology is replete with dragon-like creatures inhabiting the depths of the earth, sea, and soul. These beings, both terrifying and fascinating, are obstacles to divine and human creativity, yet indispensable for their flourishing. After centuries of midrashic and kabbalistic life, these Jewish dragons have resurfaced as forces in psychoanalysis’ unconscious, frightening yet unavoidable for personal growth. Through text and practice, we will explore these alien, yet uncannily familiar, beings.

CANCELED Can You Save a Blessing for Me? CANCELED
What does it mean to be blessed? Can someone deny you a blessing? From Genesis onwards, the subject of blessings triggers ambivalence, confusion, yearning, and power struggles. How can each of us tap into the source and power of a blessing? What makes you feel that you are blessed—or that you are not? What does it mean to forfeit—or even reject—a blessing? Is this process different for a man and a woman? How can we recover and re-craft the personal blessing meant for us?

Finding the Jewish God in the Post-Secular Age
The triumph of secularism used to be assumed; now God is back everywhere in our post-secular age. Yet, we find Biblical transcendence and God's presence to be elusive. People alternately attain and lose religion, seeking some meaning and moral orders in their lives. Some turn to inner spirituality, some to strong beliefs, and others toward a kitchen deity. We will explore the contours of this new terrain and discuss the Jewish God in an age of post-liberalism, after-theism, and post-secularism.
