5.0 out of 5 stars Important book., November 29, 2004
I want to thank the author for writing this book. Slatter describes himself as meditating since his teens and having a very strong Jewish identity up to his becoming a Rabbi. He became deeply involved in mindfullness meditation and the entire book is a deeply thought out commentery on Jewish practice.The author goes into depth on almost all aspects of Jewish practice and how it can be expanded and deepened by a daily committed practice of mindfullness meditation. What makes the book exceptional is his extensive use of Hasidic texts and how they are both relevant to our spiritual work and how these Hasidic masters were also deeply concerned with a mindful Jewish practice (though they frequently used the term Kavannah). This is a deeply thought out book and the author is quite clear in his commitment to both meditation and Judaism; its texts, its daily rituals, holidays, prayer, and the inner work to make them meaningfull pathways to come closer to a life filled with Holiness. One last point which is worth mentioning is that the author's strong background in Judaism and meditation affords him the ability to offer us practical guidelines in how to deepen our Jewish practice through meditation. If you have been meditating and you are a searching Jew this is an absolutely essential book. Thank You Rabbi Slater. The rest is commentery!
