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. Check out her biography here.
