Tikkun Middot

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.

Mindful Parenting

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.
