Combining mindfulness practices and mussar (ethical development) study, Tikkun Middot cohorts come together on a monthly basis to explore a variety of ethical character traits in order to promote a greater sense of compassion, respect and holiness within individuals and the community.
This groundbreaking program is designed to meet the social, emotional and spiritual needs of Jewish seekers entering their 60’s and 70’s. Jewish texts, poetry, secular writing, prayer, meditation and contemplative listening are all tools used in this program to challenge participants to develop their own sense of what it means to “number our days” and “grow a heart of wisdom.”
A six-week class provides students with a foundation to begin their own mindfulness meditation practice that is infused with Jewish wisdom. Each class provides opportunities for study and practice in a warm, nurturing environment. Open to beginners and long-time meditators alike.
Do you find yourself constantly running from one activity to the next with hardly a moment to breathe? Do you wish you were more present for and less anxious about your children? Your spouse? Yourself? If so, you may benefit from the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the practice of becoming aware and awake to the world around us. The practice of mindful parenting allows us to be more open and more present, without judgment or fear, to our lives and the lives of our children. Whether the parent of a toddler or teen, Mindful Parenting offers opportunities for study, discussion, meditation and friendship.
