Introduction to Jewish Mysticism & Meditation @ Rabbi Barclay's Home
Apr 24 @ 7:30 pm
In honor of the counting of the Omer time between Passover and Shavuot, and by popular request, Rabbi Barclay will be teaching a 6 week series of classes:
 
Introduction to Jewish 
Mysticism & Meditation
Tuesday, April 10 at 7:30pm
 
In this series of classes, you will gain a true understanding and experience of basic Jewish practices of meditation; ancient Jewish understandings regarding the creation and maintenance of the Universe; Kabbalistic theology and where it is hidden in our liturgy and practices; and how Judaism is a tradition that successfully integrates ethic practices and mystical beliefs. In addition, there will be time spent on how to use these teachings to enhance your personal experience of life, achieve more satisfaction, fullness, and joy in every moment; and achieve more excellence in every aspect of your life.
 
This is one of Rabbi Barclay’s favorite topics to teach, and was an integral part of his dissertation and the foundation for his book “Sacred Relationships” (Liturgical Press, 2013).  He has brought these teachings to executives and athletes (including NCAA and professional athletes and teams, as well as Emmy & Academy Award winners), and has taught Jewish mysticism and meditation around the world for over two decades in both large and small settings.
 
Classes will be held on Tuesday nights at 7:30pm beginning on April 10 and continuing through May 16 at the Barclay home:  1941 Tamarack St. in Westlake Village.
 
No prior knowledge is necessary, and as always, there is no financial charge associated with this class.
