Practical Jewish Mysticism
In these two weeks, we will begin to cultivate spiritual practices steeped in Jewish mysticism. As part of our learning, we will participate in the study of Mussar, which is a Jewish spiritual practice that gives concrete instructions on how to live a meaningful and ethical life. We will discover our inner lives and develop strategies to improve ourselves. Curiosity, mindfulness, and thoughtfulness will be encouraged. No previous background is required.
Leader: Rabbi Neil Blumofe
Dates: Wednesday, August 8 and Tuesday, August 14, 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Location: Bethell Hall, St. David’s
Work and the Spiritual Life
In this group we will examine the connection between our spirituality and our work lives. Do we live dis-integrated lives that banish spirituality and faith to Sunday mornings? Or, can we imagine a work-life that flows from our core values and authentic selves? How is that good for both us and for the organizations for which we work? Using a variety of readings as guides, we will examine how or if our faith feeds or guides our work; how or if our faith is lived out through our work; and how our faith might challenge the way we move through the world, especially at work.
Leader: Rebecca Hall
Dates: Fridays, July 13 – August 17, noon – 1 p.m.
Location: Online video conference on Zoom (join us from your desk at work)
Readings: readings from a variety of sources will be posted online for participants to read before each class.
Limit: 8 participants
