night, August 19, we’ll continue to discuss real-life issues by the light of the wisdom of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov.
Are you feeling disconnected, under pressure? Do you wish you had someone to talk to, to really talk to? A best-friend who helps you figure out who you are, who you want to be, and how to get there? Someone who always has your best interests at heart? Then hisbodedus, talking to Hashem in your own words, is a practice you might consider including in your life. Even a few minutes a day can have a profound effect on your peace of mind, happiness, and even your relationships.
During the next few classes, we’ll explore concepts related to hisbodedus, explore its practice and mechanics, share inspirational teachings, and more. Weather-permitting, we plan to take a trip to a nearby park to experience the joy of hisbodedus out-of-doors in the safety of a group (for most of us, hisbodedus is usually done at home, indoors).
As Elul approaches, Likutey Moharan, Torah 15, offers some potent insights and inspiration
