Dreaming with Rebbe Nachman (6 sessions)

Come and dream along with Rebbe Nachman of Breslev and discover Rebbe Nachman’s most famous story “The Seven Beggars”. 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 reflect our own. He was explicit that his stories were designed to arouse us all from our spiritual slumber and connect us on an almost pre-intellectual level to the Divine. They are also fun, wacky, and thought to be some of the first Jewish fiction.

All are welcome to join, regardless of Jewish background, Hebrew/Yiddish skills,or faith.

There will be an expectation of about 10 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.
