Hitbodedut – Albotini

“… [Rabbi Yehuda] Albotini speaks of a number of standard meditative techniques, he maintained
that any proper teaching could serve as the subject of one’s meditation. He thus writes,
“These who meditate (hitboded), concentrate on an idea or on a very deep lesson. They
close their eyes, and virtually nullify all their faculties in order to allow their hidden
intellect to emerge from potential to actual. They then absorb the lesson, permanently
engraving it in their soul.”  -Meditation and Kabbalah, Aryeh Kaplan
