Oh the uncertainties of daily life! Mussar is a practice that brings our best self forward. Imagine tuning into yourself, so that you respond rather than react in your day-to-day tasks, experiences, thoughts, and interactions.
Imagine an internal knowing and peace that lets you pause, breathe deeply, and affirm the goodness that surrounds you.
Visualize each day that celebrates inherent beauty, even in the midst of challenge.
Envision making that small but significant gesture that shifts another person into a radiant smile and feeling of being seen.
Believe, your words or action encourage another person to extend kindness and dignity to another.
Witness the ripple effect of radical listening and radical healing.
Practice tikkun olam / healing the world, living your life as a catalyst for internal and external healing.
Tap into a thousand-year-old Jewish spiritual process that lays baby steps towards rewiring the brain and micro-tuning your best self according to your inner soul traits.
The practice of Mussar is a guide towards transformational thought and action. Each facilitated session is carefully crafted to challenge perspectives and gain insight. The beauty of Mussar practice is that you’ll know, according to what resonates, what personal practice is next, designed by you, for you. Suggestions are provided.
Join us monthly for drop-in Mussar Splash, generously sponsored by Congregation B’nai B’rith. We’ll explore a theme relevant to our here and now. Splash sessions may conclude with a suggested optional practice.
