2020. Let's face it: the global pandemic, combined with accelerated violence and negativity throughout America, sparked a vortex of high anxiety for the world and its people. In Let Us All Breathe Together, Rabbi Weinberg offersa thoughtful collection of spiritual messages, insightful poems, and perceptive essays that explore ways to unite faith with reality-all of which combine to provide a valuable guide through the uncertainties of turbulent times.
From meditative relaxation to the soothing sounds of the shofar, to seeing the face of God in ourselves, Rabbi Weinberg shares tools to help overcome trauma and strengthen faith not only in God but also in humanity. She employs her extensive knowledge of Judaism, other spiritual traditions, and her own practice and weaves them into this engaging tutorial to help us relax, restore, and mostly, just . . . Breathe.
This fall I have had the opportunity to be a part of many presentations and discussions. Due to COVID, they were via Zoom, and recordings of them are available on my video page.
