The Baal Shem Tov asks: if the divine is peace and stillness, then why is our world, in particular human beings, so restless? He answers: because we are disconnected from our soul, from our true self. In our modern world, especially in this time of uncertainty and turmoil, the need for peace and stillness is profound. This podcast is about how we find that place of stillness within ourselves and then live our lives centered in that inner space. In conversation with my son, Rabbi Adir Glick, of Temple Har Zion in River Forest, Illinois.

About the Podcast

Daat Elyon
Spiritual insights and inspiration from the Kabbalah and other mystical traditions
Join me, Rav Yoel Glick, as we explore crucial themes of the spiritual life. Together we will attempt to find answers to the great questions of existence using the Jewish mystical teachings of the Kabbalah and Hasidism, as well as insights and inspiration gleaned from the other great Western and Eastern traditions. The emphasis in these podcasts will be on wisdom that comes from inner experience and intense practice, rather than abstract intellectual concepts and philosophy. My podcast goal is to stimulate your mind, expand your consciousness, and open up new worlds of thought and experience for both you and me.
