Outpouring of the Soul
When the summer begins to approach, go out to meditate in the meadows. When every bush of the field begins to return to life and grow, they all yearn to be included in your prayer. Rebbe Nachman gave pride of place to the spontaneous, improvised prayer uttered in one's own language and springing from the heart during hitbodedut. This handbook of his teachings on prayer includes Rabbi Kaplan's scholarly introduction, setting hitbodedut in its context within the history of Jewish prayer and meditation.
Translation of Reb Alter of Teplik's classic "Hishtapchut HaNefesh," a compilation of Rebbe Nachman's teachings on Hitbodedut.
Translated by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan. Softcover, 72 pages.
