Wednesday 13th with Mika Hadar-Borthwick
We shall look at some of Harav Cook’s spiritual poetry and writings, and meditate inspired by Harav’s beautiful writings.
Harav Cook ‘The Whispers of Existence’:
All existence whispers to me it’s secret:
‘I have life to offer, take, please take.’
If you have a heart and your heart is flowing with red blood
That has not been poisoned by the toxins of despair.
Mika is a poet, the co-founder of JMM@Alyth and the founder of ‘Subtleyoga UK’. She comes from a long line of Hasidic healers and has worked as a healer and teacher for over 25 years. Her teaching is rooted in Jewish mysticism and eastern philosophy. She is trained in a variety of mind-body-spirit systems and teaches SubtleYoga, meditation and Alexander Technique in the UK and internationally.
Wednesday 20th with Rabbi Mark Goldsmith (Plus Mika Hadar-Borthwick & Maxine Levy)
Light and Enlightenment
On the last day of Chanukkah Rabbi Mark leads a candle lit meditation on the power and meaning of light in our spiritual lives.
Rabbi Mark is one of the Rabbinic Partners at Alyth-North Western Reform Synagogue. He teaches Jewish Life Cycle and Homiletics at Leo Baeck College and has written and taught extensively on Judaism and business ethics. He loves teaching and studying Talmud and is fascinated by new ways of discovering Jewish spirituality, and in the process he established Kavannah Yoga with Maxine Levy some years ago.
