Parashat Lech Lecha 5782: Go To Yourself – Lech Lecha: Heeding the Still Small Voice Within

Description: Cultivating the spiritual practice of Lech Lecha: moving away from one sense of self – the finite, ego-based and limited self – to another sense of self – the infinite, beyond ego and limitless self. Encountering this higher self occurs when we heed our unique and internal still small voice.
