This class meets via Zoom.

Led by Sasha Baken, rabbinical student

Rabbinical student Sasha Baken guides us in our spiritual study and heightens our understanding of the priniciples of Mussar. Mussar elevates our spiritual perspective as well as a offering insights into the discipline of transformative practices. Mussar asks that we engage in thoughtful interaction with our soul traits (middot). These include qualities such as humility, generosity, trust and many others.

We will examine lessons from Jewish scripture and apply techniques like journaling, chanting and meditating as methods to balance our middot. According to the practice of Mussar, all character traits (even anxiety!) are valuable to our lives, but we can manage the levels to which they affect our being. Together we have the ability to make use of our challenges so we can flourish in our lives. This class is for anyone seeking depth, looking to discover more about themselves, or interested in analyzing Jewish scripture with a new lens. ALL ARE WELCOME.

All are welcome. This class is presented by WRJ. Class is held via Zoom.
