(Downstairs during Musaf)
Hineini in the Light of Shechinah with Steve Siegel
Hineini, usually translated “here I am”, indicates a readiness to listen and pay close attention and relates both to the Hineni prayer of Musaf and Hinéini of the Torah reading. Together, we’ll study a traditional Jewish meditation/visualization technique, based on teachings from Tzfat from around 1600, followed by a 25 to 30 minute simplified version of the practice.
Stephen Siegel has been studying, practicing and teaching meditation for more than forty years. His principal teachers were his Rebbe, Rabbi Zalman Shachter-Shalomi and his Guru, Sri Swami Rama. Over the years Steve has been privileged to study Jewish and Himalayan meditation and Kabbalah with many other luminaries including Rabbi David Cooper, Swami Veda Bharati, Dr. Daniel Matt, Rabbi Dovber Pinson and Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz.
