Day 2 - Gevurah Sh’b Chesed: Discernment within Love

Today is the second day of the Omer

Defining the path

Creating practices that guide us

in giving and receiving the Divine love

that flows through us and all the world

 

Practice for today:

Loving Kindness (Metta) Meditation

We say this prayer for ourselves and others. Begin with yourself.

Then pray — one at a time — for nine more people, making a minyan of blessing.

May I (you) be blessed with love,

May I (you) be blessed with peace,

May I (you) be blessed with well being.

 

With all my heart I seek the One. (Psalm 119:10)

 

The Omer teachings you see here and can receive as nightly email reminders by signing up for our mailing list, are taken from Rabbi Yael Levy's Omer guide, Journey through the Wilderness, which is available as a whole in print or as an ebook.

The daily teachings will begin Tuesday April 11 and continue to Shavuot, May 29. A Way In also invites you to join us for our annual retreat in the high desert of New Mexico for the last days of the Counting.

The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured in a 2015 New York Times article.
