The Attributes of Awakening
The Heart of Compassion and Forgiveness
with Rabbi Daniel Gigi
4-part series on Tuesdays from 30th May to 20th June
7.30-9.15pm UK time
Join Rabbi Gigi for this 4-week exploration of the 13 Attributes of Compassion and the spiritual pathway of Abraham Maimonides, the chief Rabbi of Egypt in the early 13th century, son of the illustrious Moses Maimonides.
Awakened awareness is accompanied by awakened attitudes of the lev, the heart-mind. These are known as the attitudinal foundations of mindfulness. Over the course of 4 sessions, Rabbi Gigi will introduce and explore these from a Jewish theoretical and experiential standpoint.
On this course we will delve into: forgiveness, kindness and compassion; patience, humility and non-judging; acceptance, trust and equanimity.
Rabbi Gigi will provide home practices which you can use and experiment with, as well as a variety of different explorative exercises during the sessions themselves. No previous experience is assumed or required.
