The Ten Days of Awe, or the High Holy Days, begins with the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, and finishes with the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.
The Ten Days of Awe is the opportunity to stop and reflect. We are invited to consider the positive and negative events of the past year. We need to admit our wrongdoings and seek forgiveness from whomever we offended against, be it our fellow human beings or God. At New Year the Books of Life and of Death open and following the ten days of self-reflection and repentance, our names get sealed into one of them for the coming year.
This meditation led by Halevi in Sept 2017 is using the Tree of Life sefirot to aid the self-review.
