Mindfulness, Kavvanah, and Meditative Focus: Three Roads to Prayer and Daily Living

Sunday, June 30, 2019
2:00 – 3:30 pm
at Hebrew Seminary

How do mindfulness, kavvanah (intention), and meditative focus work together to enhance and strengthen prayer? As we pray, how do these three techniques work together to bring us closer to God?

Living and serving God with kavvanah was routinely emphasized by the ancient rabbis. It continues to be embraced by contemporary rabbis as a way to become closer to God. Moreover, God embraces kavvanah to become closer to each of us as we pray and meditate.

These three powerful instruments are unique, yet at the same time are very similar. We will examine how these techniques can bring us closer to God in prayer and in our everyday lives.

Live life in the Divine present.  Join Hebrew Seminary President Rabbi Dr. Douglas Goldhamer, Rabbi Dr. Roberta Glick and rabbinical candidate Alison Brown on June 30th to inspire your practice and your life.
