During the month of Elul, which immediately precedes the High Holy Days, we begin the process of cheshbon hanefesh, of taking stock of our lives. It is a potent time for introspection and a catalyst for profound renewal. In this 4-session workshop, we will provide tools to cultivate and nurture an Elul practice by exploring ways to refine and transform middot (deep values and soul traits) from a Kabbalistic perspective. Each week we will concentrate on a particular middah through meditation, chanting, journaling and small group interaction.
We will also tap into Reb Zalman's Age--ing-to-Sage-ing wisdom to help participants release old patterns and harvest gems from life experience to support them on this Elul journey.
