Evening Reset: weeknight meditation

  • The Green Room 62 Bow Street Somerville, MA, 02143 United States (map)

Join us for the launch of our new weeknight meditation series, Evening Reset.

Every Evening Reset will feature instruction and a 30-minute sit, followed by a Jewish meditation teaching. Whether you've never meditated—or you've sat week-long retreats—you are invited to join us! At the core of this practice is a cultivation of awareness: awareness of our own hearts, minds, and environments. As a growing community of practice, we dedicate ourselves to building resilience, open-heartedness, and self-knowledge in a Jewish context.

This week, we’re very excited to welcome back our teacher and friend, Sheila Katz. She will be holding our meditation, as well as offering a chant practice and teaching in preparation for Passover. We’ll also have time for questions about the teaching and about meditation practice in general.

This evening is made possible by a generous grant from CJP. Suggested donation to cover use of space: $5.

About Sheila Katz. Sheila co-founded Nishmat Hayyim (Breath of Life) Jewish Meditation Collective at Temple Beth Zion in Brookline, MA. Her meditation practice, rooted in Jewish and Buddhist teachings, arises out of a drive to address the roots of suffering and take compassionate action. In addition to her meditation life, Sheila holds a PhD in Middle East History from Harvard and is the author of Connecting with the Enemy: a Century of Palestinian-Israeli Joint Nonviolence.
