Experience introspective and ecstatic practices of three ancient spiritual paths: Kabbalistic-Judaism, Early Contemplative Christianity and Sufi-Islam. This unique experiential seminar will journey deep into sacred music chanting, and spiritual mindfulness practices, drawing from the hidden wisdom of the traditions of the Near East. These practices result in heart opening, increased compassion, deepening of inner explorations, and have been shown scientifically to impact the structure and function of the brain in ways that enhance memory, cognition and awareness.
These practices also promote healing by lowering stress, anxiety, depression, and anger. The activities are based on Yuval Ron’s work with master spiritual teachers of the Near East and neuroscientists of the West. Through this incredible journey to your inner world, you will have a rare perspective into the worlds of mystic Sufi leaders, Kabbalistic Rabbis, leading Neuroscientists and scholars of the mysticism of Christianity. Join Yuval Ron for an intimate blissful deep spiritual exploration, in which he presents some of the most ancient prayers of the three Abrahamic traditions of the Middle East, discusses how these were constructed, the inter-relationship and mutual influences they share, and the message of unity and peace which his research brings forth.
This seminar is experiential, and will NOT be lecture-based. Its focus is to provide a deep spiritual experience through walking meditation, sacred movement from Hebrew, Christian and Sufi sources, ecstatic chanting meditations, and live Oud music by Yuval Ron.
