Jewish Meditation – the Shma:
Yes, Judaism has a strong meditation tradition. Let’s start exploring it with one of the most well-known Jewish mantras – the Shma. In this workshop we will learn the deeper meanings of these 6 words and experience them in a guided meditation. A good start to an authentic Jewish meditation practice that can be done daily. Location: home of Shmuel Shalom (Geoffrey) Cohen: 2531 Chula Vista Blvd, Eugene. Please use the door at the top of the driveway. Date: Monday May 20 @ 7:00pm. Cost: $15.

613 Connections to God:
Did you know that a root of the Hebrew word Mitzvah means to join together like a pipeline? Our sacred texts describe 613 ways for us to create pipelines between the Divine Creator and ourselves. We might already be doing a few of them without knowing it. There is only one way to know for sure, and that is to see what they are. And that is exactly what we will do over 3 classes – we will take a quick tour of each one and see what it is. I am sure you will be surprised by at least one of the 613. The classes will be on Monday June 10, 17, and Sunday June 23 @ 7pm. They will take place at the home of Shmuel Shalom (Geoffrey) Cohen: 2531 Chula Vista Blvd, Eugene. The cost is $45. Call 541-514-2571 to sign up and to find out more.
