Body and Breath

Dear Friends,

As we tend the fires of devotion, here is this week’s suggestion for practice. If it speaks to you, we invite you to integrate it into your day.

Body and Breath

As we begin our day, we take notice of the miracle of the breath moving through the body.

We stand in an upright posture, stretch our arms, and bow if we are able.

Standing, shoulders back, heart space open, we say this prayer:

Elohay neshamah shenatata bi tehorah he.

Source of All, the breath that you placed within me is the breath of all the world. It is clear and true.
-- Rabbi Yael Levy
