Book launch - The Sapphire Mind: Jewish Meditation's Treasures for Life

Roland Brandman studied at the University of Oxford and is the author-editor of Sapphire Mind, a new synoptic philosophy and major anthology of Jewish meditation. He lectures and writes about traditional sources for Jewish contemplative thought and practice. Roland is the Chairman of HaMakom (the leading Jewish-meditation charity), a chazan, a property lawyer, and a member of the Athenaeum Club. Roland will be discussing aspects of his recently published book, Sapphire Mind, touching on a range of ideas for meditative thought and life based on Jewish mystical traditions ancient and modern (such as the nature of and our relationship to consciousness, reality, suffering and spiritual practice). He will also comment and take questions on the status quo of Jewish meditation in Britain. We will also try practising a specific meditation technique from one of the Kabbalistic sources, suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.
