Talking to G-d, or discovering the deeper self is not taught or experienced by most Jews in a lifetime. It is therefore heroic of JLI to tackle this gap and bridge it with an excellent course that includes experiental elements like mediation. I add my encouragment for Jews at all stages of development to give themselves the opportunity to enter the gates of higher consciousness that this new JLI course provides.
