Here are the sources used for the class materials, and various resources to help with your study of Jewish meditation.

websites & articles

sources (materials from these books were used in the slides and lecture)

  • Jewish Meditation: A Practical Guide, by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, (Schocken Books).  Though Rabbi Kaplan gives a thorough introduction to the topic, he also gets a bit too deep for our liking on the mystical/transcendental side of meditation.  We do not recommend all of these practices.
  • Outpouring of the Soul, Translated to English by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, (Breslov Research Institute).
  • Jewish Meditation - Hisbodedus: The Lost Path of Secluded Meditation, by Tal Moshe Zwecker (available in ebook form for the Kindle only on amazon.com. Don't have a Kindle?  You can download a free Kindle reader for your computer and buy the book for $9.95 and read it on your computer)
