Many Jews are interested in personal growth and spiritual experiences, yet haven’t necessarily found that Judaism and the way of the Enlightened Jewish Masters gives them what they are looking for. Many look into Eastern paths, Yoga and Buddhism, or New Age mindfulness and personal empowerment classics rather than checking out our own tradition. Then there are some who are following the guidelines of the Jewish sages yet have lost the spiritual consciousness and inspiration along the way; going through the motions but not necessarily feeling fully alive in their Judaism. Added to this, although everyone wants to be happy, it seems to me that not many know how to define happiness or how to achieve it.
Mastering Life is a book written for Jews from all backgrounds to help us discover, or re-discover, the depth, wisdom and beauty of our own spiritual tradition.
The point of this book is not to just be an interesting read; it is to share the lessons and tools I’ve learned so far on my journey through six years mind and body training in the mountains and temples of South East Asia, back to the cobbled streets of Jerusalem and Tsfat and my 40 day hike down the whole length of Israel. The aim is to stimulate a shift in consciousness, strengthen Jewish identity and to inspire lasting transformation.
Brimming with vivid descriptions of countries and cultures, incredible stories of challenge and triumph, poignant insights on how to live a meaningful life, deep Torah wisdom and practical exercises, Mastering Life is a unique guide book for Jews of all ages and backgrounds, leading us towards becoming real Enlightened Jewish Masters.
I’m looking for people to partner with me in this project by contributing towards covering the costs of editing, designing, printing, shipping and marketing 2000 hardback copies of the book (as well as sending copies to Jewish youth movements, high schools, campuses and educators across the US, UK and South Africa in order to empower our youth with Jewish pride and tools for life) – in order to get the word out to as many people as possible that we can all live truly great lives based on the teachings found in our own tradition.
Thank you for being part of the team!
