Torah of Awakening: The Jewish Path of Presence

“Spiritual Awakening is a direct experience of inner freedom and spacious oneness. Beneath your personality, beneath your thoughts and feelings, there is a radiant field of awareness — free from negativity and connected to the aliveness of the present moment. We will nurture and deepen your own spiritual awakening through the core practice of simple ‘Presence’.”
