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 element for living an awakened life: Presence. Presence is not complicated. In fact, Presence is so simple, it can be very challenging to practice.
Because while Presence is very simple, we human beings are very complicated! We need special tools and support for bringing the power of Presence into our lives, and that’s the whole purpose of Torah of Awakening. Furthermore, these tools and teachings will deepen your connection with the Jewish path as well.
Here are five ways 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 Members Portal. There’s a lot in that recording, so you may want to listen to it several times.
Second, commit yourself to meditate daily. The key is to commit to something that is really doable, rather than make a big commitment that you can't keep. Even a few minutes will have profound effects.
Third, take at least one hour per week for the Lessons in Presence you will receive via email, and join in for the livestream when you are able. This will keep your practice fresh and alive and inspire you to apply the teachings to every aspect of your life.
Four – 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 and you don't have to upload any pictures, have "friends" or any of that. But, being a part of the Members Facebook group allows you to participate in all the livestreams.
And lastly, don’t hesitate to schedule a call with me if you want to talk. You can do this right from the Members Portal as well, and all members get an hour of one-on-one time with me per year, plus and introductory call. And, 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 unique practice and learning community for living an awakened life, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
