Parshat Va’Etchanan – With all your heart and all your soul
Mindfully Jewish, episode #6. With all your heart and all your soul.
a podcast by Janne L. Punski-Hoogervorst, MD
Based on this weeks Parshat, in which Moshe speaks the words which are arguably the most famous in all our writings:
שְׁמַ֖ע יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל יְהֹוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ יְהֹוָ֥ה | אֶחָֽד:
וְאָ֣הַבְתָּ֔ אֵ֖ת יְהֹוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֑יךָ בְּכָל־לְבָֽבְךָ֥ וּבְכָל־נַפְשְׁךָ֖
we discuss the mind-body connection based on the Kabbalistic teachings as recorded in the Holy Zohar. What is the duality between the body and the soul? And why do we need both in order to live a meaningful life?
