Awaken your heart and mind to see your own capacity for wisdom, compassion and kindness.

"When we awaken to our own light, it becomes possible to develop real wisdom about our life. As wisdom allows us to see clearly, our hearts break open with compassion for the struggles of our own lives and the lives of all beings. Awakened with wisdom and compassion, we are impelled to live our lives with kindness, and we are led to do whatever we can to repair the brokenness of our world."
―from the Introduction

At last, a fresh take on meditation that draws on life experience and living life with greater clarity rather than the traditional method of rigorous study.

Based on twenty-five years of bringing meaningful spiritual practice to the Jewish community, well-known meditation teacher and practitioner Rabbi Jeff Roth presents Jewish contemplative techniques that foster the development of a heart of wisdom and compassion. This contemporary approach to meditation―accessible to both beginners and experts alike―focuses on using the distilled wisdom of Buddhism and Judaism as a way to learn from life experience. By combining these two traditions, he presents a model that allows westerners―both Jews and non-Jews―to embrace timeless Eastern teachings without sacrificing their birth traditions.

From the Inside Flap:

In today's busy world, many of us go through life on a kind of automatic pilot, flying the same route over and over, as if we're sleepwalking--our fate as uncontrollable as our dreams. But you can wake up; you can open to a place of awareness that sees and understands life much more clearly than during your normal level of consciousness.

With compassion and knowledge, well-known meditation practitioner and teacher Rabbi Jeff Roth leads you on a path toward cultivating an awakened state of being, based on the wisdom of Jewish and Buddhist meditation practices.

Through personal anecdotes and easy-to-do exercises, Roth demonstrates how it is possible to achieve a more meaningful spiritual life and how this awakened state of being--the awakened heart--will inspire you to respond to life's challenges with clarity and kindness, gradually making it your default way of being.

"Remarkable.... Rabbi Roth takes the reader by the hand in clear language, making it possible to follow the instructions and to observe the results."
--Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, author, First Steps to a New Jewish Spirit: Reb Zalman's Guide to Recapturing the Intimacy & Ecstasy in Your Relationship with God
