Over the past seven or eight years, we have seen meditation help dozens and dozens of such people open to the bottomless richness of their own tradition and gain access to a path they felt was closed to them. Focusing on their breath and their bodies, their consciousness acquires a vibrancy, a radiance, a sense of the sacred. And when they move from meditation to normative Jewish practice and bring this kind of consciousness to an experience as rich and profound as Jewish prayer or Torah study or Shabbat, the Jewish spiritual path comes alive to them.
