HMI at Home began as our virtual programming initiative to keep us all connected throughout the pandemic. Now, HMI at Home is so much more than virtual events. It encompasses incredible opportunities for meaningful connection that happen online and in person in your city! From Shabbat to holidays to challah baking, the HMI community is here for you.

HMI Los Angeles: Introduction to Jewish Meditation (Virtual)
March 31 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm PDT
Judaism has a very long history of meditation and contemplative practice as a way to cultivate personal transformation and divine connections. Join us to learn the basics with instruction, short exercises, Q&A, and discussion. The workshop is open to people of all levels of experience and backgrounds and is designed to offer a broad introduction to Jewish meditation, teachings, and contemplative practice. We’ll explore Kabalistic teachings, modern interpretations of prayer and ritual, and learn how to create sustainable and joyful daily practice. With instruction, discussion, and time to practice, the workshop will be interactive, inspiring, and create a space for personal reflection.
Zoom with us if you’re a total beginner or an advanced meditator, if you’re interested in deepening your experience of being a person, learning more about meditation, or just want to sit still and breathe for a bit. No experience or beliefs necessary, just your breath.
Once registered, you’ll receive the Zoom link – you can join live or watch the replay video (video will be available for thirty days). This workshop will be led by Alison Laichter, meditation teacher, consultant, and urban planner.
