THE ART OF MUSSAR: A PRACTICE GROUP BLENDING MUSSAR AND EXPRESSIVE ARTS

Tuesday, January 22, 29, February 12, 26, 2019 - 7:15pm-8:45pm Location: Chochmat HaLev The study and practice of Mussar offers a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation. Its focus on tikkun middot, the refinement of character, enables us to ground our spiritual aspirations and live a life of joy and personal integrity. Tikkun middot is a practice shared by both Jewish mystics and mussar masters alike. It involves deepening self-awareness (cheshbon ha’nefesh), building spiritual muscle in the areas where we are challenged and mastering reactive, habitual patterns. The group, led by Estelle Frankel with occasional guest artists will blend text study with guided meditation, journaling, poetry and expressive arts. The curriculum for the 4-sessions will draw upon the following middot: humility, courage, faith/trust, equanimity, patience/perseverance, compassion, generosity, honesty. Register here
