Review: Jewish Meditation: A Practical Guide

User Review  - Tucker - Goodreads

Explains types of meditation that are precedented in Jewish religious tradition. One type is "engraving" an image in one's mind, followed by "hewing" all other imagined visual distractions from the negative space surrounding it. Had to pass this one on (as scheduled) before I quite finished it! Read full review
