Shalom and welcome to Torah of Awakening membership!
I’m going to share with you how you can get the most out of your membership, and connect with the single most important practice for spiritual awakening.
What is the single most important practice for spiritual awakening?
The most important practice is what I call, Presence. Presence is not complicated. In fact, Presence is so simple, it can be very challenging to practice.
Because while Presence is very simple, human beings are very complicated. In order to really internalize the practice of Presence so that it transforms every aspect of your life, the simplicity of Presence needs to connect with all of who you are, in all your complexity- and that’s the purpose of Torah of Awakening.
Through your Torah of Awakening membership, you can access a variety of tools and modes of support for the spiritual awakening that’s available to you through the practice of Presence.
Here’s what I recommend to get the most out of your membership.
First, be sure to learn Integral Jewish Meditation by listening to the 25-minute recording available at the top of your membership page. There’s a lot in that recording, so you may want to listen to it several times.
Next, commit yourself to meditate daily. Of course, you can also do other practices as well, and you’ll learn many more in this membership when you’re ready, but at least spend some time in meditation every day, at least seven minutes, and more if you’re able.
Third, join me in at least one video workshop per month. This will keep your practice fresh and alive and you’ll connect with the larger community. And please bring you questions- getting questions answered is not only good for you, but it can be helpful to others in the workshop as well. You can always see when the next workshop is happening on your membership page, so remember to check.
Four- take 18 minutes per week to listen to the weekly podcasts you’ll receive in your email. If you have trouble finding the time, listen in headphones from your smart phone while you exercise, go for a walk, do the dishes, or whatever. Or, make a commitment to listen to the podcast once per week instead of watching TV, browsing the internet, or whatever you do for leisure- you’ll be happy that you did. This will keep you actively learning and immersed in the teachings from a variety of angles.
Five- join the Facebook group if you haven’t already. If you don’t use Facebook, consider opening an account just to be part of this online forum. You don’t have to use Facebook for anything else if you don’t want to. I post teachings and reminders on the forum, and we also have different learning groups there for folks with different needs, so you can check all that out when you join the Facebook group. You can join from the membership page.
And lastly, don’t hesitate to schedule a call with me if you want to talk. You can do this right from your membership page as well, and it’s free. Or if you need more attention, you can get spiritual coaching by scheduling an hour long Revelation Session with me and paying as a sliding scale donation- also available only to members.
Thank you again for being part of this uniquely Jewish, practice and learning community for spiritual awakening. Many blessings for continual deepening in the joy and peace of Presence. I look forward to seeing you soon.
