Meditation

Mindful Mornings

Thursday mornings, 8:30am-9:15am
60 Highland Street, Library (second floor)

This weekly gathering combines guided and silent meditation to develop our capacity for mindful awareness and to cultivate qualities of patience, gratitude, and compassion. On the first Thursday of each month, Karen Arnold will lead a meditation based on the weekly Torah portion (a long-time participant in Mindful Mornings, Karen is a graduate of the Jewish Mindfulness Teacher Training Program).

All are welcome, whether experienced in meditation or not. The group is facilitated by CDT members with occasional participation by Rabbi Toba. No need to make a weekly commitment; join us when you’re able! (Please arrive no later than 8:30am, in order not to disrupt the session once we’ve started.) For more information, please email mindful-mornings [at] dorsheitzedek.org

Check the current calendar for session dates.
