THE WORKSHOP: Each of the five sessions will be based on teachings from the Tanya, the 18th century Chassidic text, and will incorporate an understanding of the Kabbalistic view of the Soul and its journey towards the fulfillment of the commandment:

“Love God your Lord with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might.” DEUTERONOMY: 6.5

SOUNDPRAYER MEDITATION is based on teachings from the Tikkuney Zohar, and the writings of Rabbi Joseph Gikatilla, as well as the work of Abraham Abulafia in 13th century literature. The 10 basic vocal sounds employed in SoundPrayer meditation are each related to specific passages in Torah.  Each sound has a specific vibrational characteristic that draws on the power of 10 distinct emanations (Sefirot) that correspond to locations on the human body. The power of these vocal sounds can be drawn upon to raise consciousness in many extraordinary ways.
