Contemplative Jewish Prayer: Presence, Intention, Surrender
Rabbis Nancy Flam and James Jacobson-Maisels
March 4-30, 2018

The practice of contemplative Jewish prayer enables us to open our hearts, minds and souls and cultivate ways of being that realize our fullest selves in intimate contact with divinity. Through the daily practice of contemplative prayer supported by weekly teachings, discussion groups, practice instructions, daily inspirations and other resources, participants will be helped to cultivate states of presence, authenticity, intimacy, surrender and opening which are the fruits of the practice. Participants will also be guided as to how to cultivate whatever qualities of heart and soul they feel most in need of as part of their daily practice. The clearly structured and carefully guided contemplative prayer model offered here is grounded in the Piacetzner Rebbe's quieting technique as well as the personal practice and exploration of the teachers.

Rabbi Nancy Flam is co-founder and Founding Executive Director of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality where she served for many years as Co-Director of Programs and now directs The Prayer Project. She serves as a spiritual director, and teaches and writes widely about Jewish spirituality, prayer, healing and mindfulness.

Rabbi Dr. James Jacobson-Maisels is the founder of Or HaLev: A Center for Jewish Spirituality and Meditation and has been studying and teaching meditation and Jewish spirituality for over fifteen years. He received his PhD in Jewish Studies from the University of Chicago and teaches Jewish thought, mysticism, spiritual practices and meditation at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies and in a variety of settings around the world.
