TOPIC: The cook is in the kitchen  – 8 session module

The cook is in the kitchen, and good things are simmering. We’ve grown together and enjoyed great conversations and inner growth. Treat yourself to ongoing Mussar Muse conversations in an intellectual, compassionate, creative community.


  • Gatherings for this 8-session module will meet on specified Fridays, summer (June-October)  going easy during the Jewish high holidays.
  • As always, we’ll dive into learning from the Mussar masters and reflecting on showing up for ourselves.
  • Participants may choose to be paired with a “chevruta” / study buddy, opt for a “check-in” call, or “chill” between sessions.
  • Many chevruta partners have formed deep friendships and shared important quandaries, joys, and mutual encouragement during this optional self-guided opportunity.

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.
