The ancient teachings of the Kabalah provide us with powerful techniques to awaken the soul and re-integrate the Divine energy into our bodies. Through breathing, meditation and specific physical postures, we directly link ourselves with the Eternal source of all life and consciousness. The primary tools for this process are the Hebrew letters themselves, brought to life by a special breathing and sensing of the body. This “Jewish yoga” has its source in antiquity but is a fresh, fun way to integrate body, breath, and spirit.
Benefits of this practice can include more peace of mind, serenity, joy, and contentment, as well as improvement of the bodily functions and organs. The practice does not require previous knowledge of the Hebrew language, of Kabalistic texts, or any specific Jewish background. The techniques employed are actually quite simple and clear.
Practicing the Ophanim meditation and positions often results in a revitalization of both the body and the spirit, as the Divine energy permeates and awakens the physical organs and the soul itself. With this energizing, one begins to see life anew — fresh, vibrant and connected with the Source. The Ophanim techniques should bring a renewal and strengthening for those who practice it carefully and regularly.
