As Reb Brian Yosef explains: “Spiritual awakening is the realization that you are far more than your thoughts and feelings. Beneath your personality, lies radiant field of awareness, free from negativity and connected to the aliveness of the present moment. Brian Yosef’s teachings and music bring to life your potential for awakening in a direct and experiential way, freeing you from stress and opening you to joy, wellness and peace. It includes sacred Hebrew chanting, movement, and silent meditation.” Sample Reb Brian Yosef’s teachings online at www.torahofawakening.com.

I cannot recommend his work enough. As a teacher he is wise and inspiring. As a musician and spiritual leader the prayers come to life and seem to take flight within the heart and soul.” by Rabbi David Zaslow, Havurah Shir Hadash, Ashland, OR.
