"The World as It Is": Using the Wisdom of Mussar Teachings to Cultivate a Sense of Sacredness Amidst the Chaos

Delving Into The Spiritual Dimensions Of Personal Growth

Mussar, a tradition passed from generation to generation, teaches us to understand how choices affect our self and others. Studying Mussar guides us to become a full and active participant in relationships - to be present, awake, and to live life as we aspire to.

Join us this June & July for four summer sessions: June 3rd, 10th, 24th & July 1st.

We shall explore how the practice of Mussar can teach us how to live in the world as it is - not the world we expected it to be.

All four sessions will take place in Petaluma on Monday mornings 9.00am - 10.30am.

The course leaders, Stephen Weiss and Helaine Sheias, graduates of the Yesod Facilitation course at the Mussar Institute, will co-facilate.
