Everyday Kabbalah is the first step-by-step manual integrating the spiritual teachings and meditation lessons of the Musar, Hasidic, and kabbalistic schools. It carefully guides the reader—with powerful breathing, visualization, and transpersonal techniques—through an exciting and unique exploration of self-discovery and personal transformation. Jewish meditation offers therapeutic psychological and physical benefits, including greater self-awareness and self-acceptance. It can also help to lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and provide emotional and physical healing. While all the meditations and teachings of this book are designed to promote personal healing and well-being, some are intended to give spiritual fortitude to individuals undergoing particular hardships such as the loss of a loved one, divorce, physical pain or illness, unemployment, low self-esteem, and loneliness.

She founded and directs the Jewish Meditation Circle which offers ongoing meditation programs. As a psychotherapist in private practice, she uses Jewish meditation as a part of therapeutic treatment.
