The week continued with yoga classes on Tuesday, July 6th at 8 and Wednesday, July 7th at 6:45. The yoga classes consisted of flowing movements and breath designed to bring strength, relaxation and joy. Attracting between 5 and 15 young adults, these free sessions do not require an RSVP and are a great way to do something for your health and wellbeing in a comfortable environment.
On Thursday, July 8th a classic Kabbalah meditation at the Next Dor STL house , which included a discussion of classic kabbalah meditations and concepts from Sefer Yetzirah, Zohar, Chassidic Masters and the works of the Arizal. The intimate group was guided through classical Jewish meditations that give Jewish mystical and spiritual experiences. These classical Jewish meditation practices can be taken home and practiced by participants on a regular basis to infinitely enhance their Jewish spiritual life.
Moving from mysticism to music, on Sunday, July 11th, Next Dor STL held a guitar lesson/jam session that gave a free guitar lesson to any Jewish young adults with a guitar and a desire to learn. Participants were broken up into 2 groups, led by Joel Miller and Jeremy Lieb. Thanks to the great turnout, a follow up lesson will be planned for later in the summer.
