Mountain Xpress: Are there particular Judaic teachings that inspire this retreat?
Roth: We use meditation as connected to the practice called mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness is clear balanced non-judgmental attention to the truth of what is. Mindfulness meditation teaches the necessary skills to be mindful at all times. From a Jewish mystical point of view, everything is God and nothing but God. From this perspective, mindfulness is then a quick path to beholding the divine in every moment of experience.
The Awakened Heart Project promotes contemplative practices in the Jewish world (including retreats) that teach the skills and theories behind experiencing the divine in all things, which results in lives filled with wisdom, open-heartedness and skillful/loving actions in the world.
