Spiritual guide, author, teacher and therapist, Rabbi Ted Falcon, Ph.D., has been a student and teacher of Jewish meditation and Kabbalah for over forty years. With gentleness and humor, he offers unique insight into spirituality while deeply affirming the integrity of each individual being.
As part of the Interfaith Amigos, Rabbi Ted explores the frontiers of interfaith spirituality. Karen Armstrong calls their "exuberant and courageous" new book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith, "an inspiration and example for all of us in these sadly polarized times."
"The Talmud suggests that when we are considering someone as a friend, we need to first see how they deal with their anger, because in anger we tend to lose sight of what really matters."
"When I received my rabbinic training in the mid-1960s, I had never heard of such a thing as Jewish meditation. Whether any of my teachers at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, all products of the Enlightenment, were familiar with this practice, I do not know, but I am certain they would have dismissed it as irrational."
