From my Flesh I See God:  Embodying the Amidah 
Rabbi Myriam Klotz 
March 4 – 30, 2018 

The Amidah, or Standing Prayer, forms the backbone of daily Jewish liturgical worship. The physicality of this prayer is essential to its expression.  In this module you will be invited through the gates of this prayer into the realm of embodied prayer practice more generally.

We will inquire together: How can we deepen our prayer through physical gesture, presence and posture as we stand and stretch into the blessings that form the vertebrae of this prayer?  What opens in our prayer lives if we expand our intention to pray with the body? What happens as the prayer emerging from the heart expresses itself not only through lips, but also through arms and legs, through bowing or uplifted spine? How does the body in stillness or movement express authentic prayer? At the same time as we will delve more deeply into this central Amidah prayer and its worded intentions, we will explore how to embody prayer more generally. Participants will be led each week through a guided, audio practice.

Rabbi Myriam Klotz is a certified yoga teacher and has been senior teacher of yoga and embodied practices at the Institute for Jewish Spirituality for 14 years. Myriam is the Director of the Spirituality Initiative at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, co-director of Bekhol Levavkha Jewish Spiritual Director Training, and previously co-directed the Yoga and Jewish Spirituality Teacher Training at Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center. Her CDs for guided practice include In All Your Ways Know God: Beginning Yoga on and off the Mat.
