May 2, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:15 pm
Their Stories, Our Stories
Mussar is spiritual wisdom and a discipline of transformative practices. The foundation of Mussar are the middot, the deepest values, soul traits of our tradition – Ometz Lev (Courage) Bitachon (Trust) Anavah (Humility) Rachamim (Compassion) and so many more.
In this four session introduction we will dive into the middot and into the practices that support our own personal growth, our connection to others, and our care and repair of the world.
Nefesh is an open hearted spiritual community that is middot-driven. We place the margin at the creative center – Rabbi Susan Goldberg brings a unique transformational and embodied practice to Mussar. Whether you are experienced in this practice or new to Mussar you are most welcome.
