About this talk

While there is no generic term for them, Jewish contemplative techniques are as old as Judaism itself. From the First Hasidim’s Kavannah described in the Talmud to the Mystical Hermits portrayed by R Hayim Vital, from Abul’afia’s permutation of the letters of the Divine Name taught to Rabbi Nachman’s Hitbodedut, Jewish meditation practices all have in common to seek a connection to the divine. Through this journey, the practitioner’s “soul” is “revealed”, just as in the etymology of the term “Psychedelic”. As we open the first Jewish Psychedelic Summit, let’s start by connecting to the most natural form of psychedelic experience there is: ‘looking at our thoughts’ with the Hashkata or “quieting” meditation of the Piaseczner rebbe, so that the soul, cleared from the veils of ego, can reveal herself.
