Music is one of the most powerful gateways for connecting to our spiritual nature, our divine source, and our community. While the healing and spiritual powers of music are very real, the process of connecting through prayer and song remains a mystery on many levels. It’s unseen and untouchable, hard to verbalize and become tangible, and is often neglected. Why is it that sometimes we sing and pray and have a magical experience, and other times we don’t? What makes music spiritual? This experiential session will include old texts and teachings about music from Jewish scholars, and draw from 20+ years of experience performing and studying jazz, rock, and improvisational music. We will unpack some of the mystery of how to pray more meaningfully, and how to harmonize both physically and spiritually. The Jewish tradition is steeped in music and mysticism; prepare to dive into the depths with Ari Joshua.
