Reclaiming Ritual Integral Religion & Rosh Hashanah
This is a book about tears. It is about the dance of tears in our lives. Tears are not of one texture. There are many forms of holy tears and there are also, or so it appears from the perspective of one level of consciousness, unholy tears. This book is about learning to discern between these different forms of tears. To learn the language of tears is to discern between the different forms of sacred tears.
Ultimately, however, from a higher level of consciousness all tears are holy in their root. Part of what it means to wake up is to identify the nature of your tears, and to give your tears voice. To wake up is to know the language of tears. When you are awake, you hear and hearken to the melody and message of your tears, and your life is filled by deeper meaning.

A seminal contribution to Integral Religion, Integral Kabbalah, and Integral Judaism. An essential book for anyone who cares about any of the three, and that should be everyone.
Gafni is a new Martin Buber or Abraham Joshua Heschel. A rigorous poetic thinker who is both devotee, artist and teacher in his tradition. This book will change forever your relationship to Rosh Hashana, spirituality and Judaism.
