Come and dream along with Rebbe Nachman of Breslev this winter as we together explore Rebbe Nachman's stories. Rebbe Nachman would tell amazing stories, almost fairytale-like in their construction, filled with the most esoteric Kabbalistic symbolism. These stories mirrored his personal dreams and often can affect our own. He was explicit that his stories were designed to arouse us all from our spiritual slumber and connect us on almost a pre-intellectual level to the Divine. They are also fun, wacky, and some of the first Jewish fiction. This class is especially designed for folks in their 30s and 40s, though all are welcome to join, regardless of Jewish background, Hebrew/Yiddish skills, or faith. There will be an expectation of about 30 pages of reading in preparation of each session. All will be invited (but not required) to bring their own dreams or daydreams for spiritual inquiry.
On Zoom, Four Wednesdays: Jan 19, Jan 26, Feb 2, Feb 9. from 8:00-9:30 pm Eastern
