GIFT #5: Zen-Jewish Menorah Meditation


Before you light tonight, take a moment to allow our dear brother Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison, Co-Founder of The New York Zen Center For Contemplative Care, to guide you into fuller, richer, and more loving presence.

“In this holiday of Hanukkah, allow yourself to really embody the true act of courage – which is to be here.”
