    Episode 110: The Joy Of Presence, The Presence of Joy

    This is the first Dash of Drash for several months and we hope it brings you joy. As a tribute to the Vietnamese Buddhist teacher of mindfulness and the month of Adar, whose promise is of increased joy and the Chinese New Year, this offering is a reflection of the beauty and complexity of cultivating joy.

    Episode 109: Burnham Ballads - 2 poems about a special place

    I recently revisited a very special place from my childhood called Burnham on Crouch in the County of Essex on the east coast of England. Some very profound reconnecting with the river, the landscape and dear old friends produced these words. Not the usual fodder of A Dash of Drash.

    Episode 107: Smiling behind a Mask

    I have been pondering how you smile from behind a mask on the trail.
    I wrote a piece about it shared here, recorded on Lag Baomer where there is much reflection about eyes and mouths. What will happen when we come out of the isolation of our caves?

    Episode 106: Counting Days, Making Days Count

    Today can so easily feel like yesterday and tomorrow, especially right now. Making each day count, imbuing every day with meaning is hard but important. The annual counting ritual of the 49 days of the Omer between two harvest, between redemption and revelation can help us create a daily and deeply personal map for this strange, uncertain journey we are on.

A dose of wisdom and meaning

Listening to Rabbi Marc is like listening to a wise and humble sage in a village of old. He speaks from his heart and offers his teachings from a place of pure offering, drawing from the depths of traditional Judaism while making it relevant and accessible to our modern souls in modern times.

Drash: A gentle soul and sharp mind

Most podcasts raise my blood pressure, but even when the topics are serious the Rabbi's calming voice and rational approach leave me soothed as well as better informed/more thoughtful. Thanks for taking the time to produce this podcast!
