Reference notes from May 7th Shaveh LeChol Nefesh Shiur

Reb Miles brings great riches to our class with his vast knowledge of many traditions; authors, practitioners, and experiences.  His references can lead one to a lifetime of learning, and I have been fascinated and have learned a lot from tracking down the resource and reading more.  I often have a hard time deciphering my quickly jotted notes; my handwriting is hard to read, or my notes are incomplete, or the reference is in Hebrew or another language and I have no idea whether what I wrote down is even remotely correct.  I thought this forum could be a great place to share our understanding and resources, posting information about these references where and when we find them.

A few references from our class on May 7th, 2017:

BLIND SPOT The Unforessen End of Accelerating Change by Peter Russell

Often cited, Yam HaChochma : Rabbi Yitzchak Meir Morgenstern This week Reb Miles discussed his commentary on Acharei Mot.  I could not find individual text commentaries, but there are a few books available from SeforimCenter.org. There are also quite a few audio shiurim at Kol HaLoshon.com, but they are in Yiddish and crazy hard to even hear, let alone understand.  Since there are a number of books by R. Morgenstern, does anyone have a recommendation for one to begin with?

As part a discussion of the new paradigm of ‘self- reflective- realizing’ I wrote down rather hastily: ‘from a student of Norchan Yarbu from Zochen in Italy???’ a book titled “You Are the World”.  When I went to look it up it was obvious that I messed up in writing down the author’s name. Does anyone have the correct spelling?  There is a book of the same name by J. Krishnamurti, which looks interesting too.

You Are the Universe: Discovering Your Cosmic Self and Why It Matters by Deepak Chopra and Menas C. Kafatos (a physicist), currently a NY Times Best Seller.

I will most likely keep posting these from my notes, and hope that others will share what leads they have followed.  All for One and One for All!  Thanks Y’all.
