Carter,Director of the California Commission on the Status of Women under Gov. Jerry Brown and Lecturer at U.C. Berkeley Graduate School of Public Policy. 'Dear Friends: For the last twenty-two years, Reb Léah has been 'receiving' from the realm of Shekhinah and sharing that consciousness with us in her teaching and her davenning. Now, she complements the male tradition with woman-mind, making her unique insights available to a wider audience on this CD. Hearing her voice and the inspiring music transmits Shekhinah awareness directly, into our hearts and our homes. ~ Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi 'The very best meditations by our beloved Rabbi Léah with original music by our favorite band - Desert Wind. Good for relaxation, healing, connecting with Shekhinah and your soul!' ~ Rabbi Ayla Grafstein, Ruach Hamidbar 'Dear Friends: Reb Léah Novick's long awaited c-d featuring seven guided meditations, with great keyboard and flute music by Desert Wind - is now available. This recording takes you on wonderful journey through history with Shekhinah, the Cosmic Jewish Mother. The meditations are related to different time periods, and are based on Reb Léah's teachings. They will also be included in her upcoming book, to be published by Quest Theosophical Publishers in the fall of 2008. No matter what your gender or spiritual path, we are sure that you will find this material moving and transformative.' ~ Susan Saxe, ALEPH, Alliance for Jewish Desert Wind fans will appreciate this response: 05/27/07 'Oh my God (dess)!
