The practice of Mussar brings transformational learning. Treat yourself and 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. Facilitated discussions encourage everyone to share their wisdom while learning from the group. Joining for a full module provides the benefit of deepening understandings, comfort among community, and communications prior to each gathering as well as a follow-up email that highlights our discussions.
As we contemplate uncertainties in our current day-to-day lives, you can ground yourself in this age-old Jewish practice of self-transformation. Touching on Jewish ethics, text study, and neurobiology, Mussar brings our best self forward as we lean into tikkun olam, healing ourselves and our world. Our gatherings are now dancing around secular holidays, so this 3-session module will meet on the third Friday of the month. Alliteration unintended.
Come ready for attentive listening and open-hearted learning in community. You will have the option to touch base with another Mussar Muse during the month.You will receive study prompts to use with your matched chevruta partner on the between weeks. All answers are right – this is an opportunity to deepen learning and meet another community member.
- Optional between weeks enrichment.
- At our first gathering, you can choose between chevruta/study partner, or a check-in call, or “chill”.
- Pairings will be sent after the first meeting.
- Keep the same Friday meeting time, or agree to a different time with your buddy.
- In this transformational learning journey, you can anticipate enjoying:
- hearing and sharing stories;
- participating in text study, and
- pursuing baby-step stretch goals in the following weeks.
If you’re new to Mussar, and up for an heart-based learning experience, you’re in for a transformative journey. For those members already participating, you know you’re in for a treat. We have the extra blessing of several members of other Abrahamic faiths that deepen our understandings. Bring your curiosity and all are welcome.
We meet by zoom on Fridays from 8:30-9:45 a.m. PST (11:30 a.m. EST). If you need to leave at 9:30, that’s OK. Checking in 10-15 minutes early is encouraged. Registered participants will receive the private zoom log-in.
Group size will be capped, so exercise your zerizut / enthusiasm and complete your registration today!
