Avodah Shebalev - Devotion in the Heart is an ongoing Jewish chant and mindfulness prayer meditation community guided by Laura Hegfield.

We generally meet every other Wednesday morning from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. – check the calendar for specific dates.  We explore wisdom and inspiration found in the weekly Torah reading engaging our bodies, minds, hearts and souls through:

  • a short teaching
  • chanting
  • 20 minutes of silent prayer/meditation
  • reflections/questions/conversation amongst the group

Our intention as a community is to awaken and deepen our prayer lives, cultivate patience, holy listening, peace, as we learn to see the truth of each moment with clarity, and observe the inner workings and habits of our hearts and minds that impact our relationships with ourselves, with other people, the earth, and our connection/devotion to God (however it is that you experience the Divine.)
