Way of the Flame: A Guide to the Forgotten Mystical Tradition of Jewish Meditation

In The Way of Flame, Avram Davis introduces us to a rich and stimulating world beyond the lessons taught in Hebrew school, helping us discover the mystical path of Judaism - not a path of books and debate but of heart and soul.

Overview

Many know Judaism as a tradition of scholarly texts and lively debate but are unaware that it also has a long history of contemplative and meditative practices. Indeed, Talmudic scholars had extraordinary respect for exercises in spirituality. In The Way of Flame, Avram Davis introduces us to a rich and stimulating world beyond the lessons taught in Hebrew school, helping us discover the mystical path of Judaism - not a path of books and debate but of heart and soul. Packed with passion and humor, this powerful guide incorporates philosophy and story with suggestions for daily living - including exercises and examples for setting up your own practice. Emphasizing the need for joy and community in meditation, Davis invites readers to wander the extraordinary and compelling lesser-known path of Torah. He combines the traditional teachings and his own unorthodox experiences, including a stint as a mendicant monk ('though in a Jewish sort of way') at a Catholic abbey in southern California, to offer a fresh and reinvigorated understanding of the Jewish faith.
