Mussar: Transforming Lives & Relationships
Are you looking for a spiritual practice that will take you beyond a focus on yourself?
Are you looking for an approach to Judaism, informed by tradition, but which you can make your own?
Are you looking for a program that allows for authentic and sustained connection with others on the journey?
Mussar, as shared by the Center for Contemporary Mussar, is an intensive, innovative, and intimate spiritual practice that will enable you to transform yourself and your relationships, allowing you to live a moral life of responsible service to others…
Develop a daily and weekly practice based on individual study, journaling, text study with a partner and work in a Mussar va’ad, a class of like-minded seekers, with a trained teacher, a madrich or madricha.
In a small setting, share with others who are learning how to make “Love your neighbor as yourself” the cornerstone of their lives — discover that joy and holiness happen in those moments when we are fully present to others.
