Jewish Meditation with Lisa Halberstadt

Lisa Halberstadt is a psychiatric researcher, and a teacher of Mindful Meditation, Jewish Meditation and Mindful Self-Compassion. In this one-time class, Lisa will lead the group in a Passover themed meditation from which the wisdom of Jewish teachings and the inspiring nature of the Passover story will be used as a foundation. Participants will walk away feeling renewed and centered whether they plan to celebrate Passover or they are simply looking for a unique and uplifting  opportunity to meet people and connect with themselves.

This program is open to people of all faiths and does not require a background in meditation.
