I am delighted to invite you to an inspiring weekend of personal transformation. My good friend Nancy Weiss and I have co-created a Mussar program called bTransform Yourself Through Jewish Wisdom.b The workshop will take place December 15-17 at a new, and unique retreat center,1440 Multiversity, located in the redwoods of Santa Cruz County, California.
Rabbi Elya Lopian described the spiritual practice of Mussar as teaching the heart what the head already knows. That is very much the spirit that will drive the weekend. You will go home with an understanding of the path of Mussar, and feel empowered to change habits that are keeping you from getting the most out oflife.
During the weekend, soul-filling and fun practices will incorporate cognitive and experiential modalities, including :
Mindfulness meditation, visualization, and small group and partner exercises
Art activities such as collage, drawing, and journaling to help you connect with your inner voice and deepen self-reflection
Discussion of spiritual texts to enhance your understanding of the Mussar ideas
Simplepractices to help you internalize learning when the group is not in session.
This workshop is open to anyone with an interest in how ancient Jewish wisdom is relevant to modern life. Jewish and non-Jewish people alike are welcome.
If the program excites you as much as it excites us, we hope you will join us. We have no doubt that you will experience moments of clarity, awe and personal awareness. And, you will have fun!
If you have any questions about the program, please contact me either by email or phone 650-703-6403.
