Speaker: Rabbi Yoel Glick
"The Essential Qualities of a Spiritual Seeker"
The spiritual life is an extraordinary adventure. The Bhagavad Gita calls it the razor’s edge. The goal is lofty and the rewards are great, but the path is both difficult and demanding. We need to be well equipped if we are to succeed in our quest. In this talk, Rabbi Yoel Glick will look at the tools that the great teachers of humanity have given us to aid us in walking the path.
Rabbi Yoel Glick is a rabbi with Orthodox ordination, the founder of the first school for Jewish meditation and spirituality in the Old City of Jerusalem, director of daatelyon.org - an online center for spiritual training and wisdom, a spiritual seeker who has spent time in ashram and studied the mystical traditions of the major world religions. Reb Yoel is a teacher, guide and mentor who moves between the city of Jerusalem and a small village in the Pyrenees Mountains of France, opening people’s hearts and minds - connecting them to themselves, to the world around them - to the truth at the core of their being.
Note: There is silent meditation in the Chapel from , before each Sunday’s talk. After the talk, devotees and friends meet in the Monastery from , for tea, coffee, snacks and a continuation of our spiritual fellowship. Please join us!
