February 7 @ 11am

talk and guided meditation w/ Steven Gold
Guided Meditation – I am an Empty Shell, Therefore I am Full; A Meditation on Emptiness and Dark Luminescence Based on the Opening Lines of Genesis

Meditation: The opening lines of Genesis are usually construed as a mystical/metaphorical description of the creation/manifestation of the totality of the macrocosm, of all of creation, that happened some time ago in the mythic past. However, they can also be regarded as describing processes of ongoing creation/manifestation occurring all of the time, and not only in the macrocosm, but also in the microcosm, within each of us. This presentation will analyze some of the clauses from these opening lines of Genesis as an introduction to a guided meditation experientially incorporating these spiritually powerful images into our inner being. Come experience the ongoing Genesis within and its relationship to “the thin voice of silence/stillness.”

"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 - 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.
