Shabbat Guided Meditations

Finding presence, quieting the thoughts in our minds, and transitioning seamlessly into Shabbat — these things are hard. But what can help us shift from constantly doing to simply being are Shabbat rituals infused with mindfulness-based meditations.

This Friday, deepen your Shabbat practice by meditating over the Shabbat candles, wine, and challah. Together, we will pause, reflect, celebrate, and nourish our bodies and minds.
