At the heart of physical, emotional and intellectual well-being is spiritual well-being. When we are sick in body, declining in mind, or broken-hearted, an engaged, awake spirit can anchor us. Moreover, a rich spiritual life can enliven the commonplace, call forth gratitude, and lead us to greater flourishing. However, there is so much that takes our attention away from attending to our spirit and showing up to our lives authentically and skillfully, moment to moment. How do we cultivate greater spiritual awareness? What practices can deepen our connection to our soul so that we can meet the vicissitudes of life with grace and thrive? 


Over this 8-week course, we will explore how mindfulness practices, and the psalms, prayers and stories of Judaism offer lessons into connecting to each moment and enriching our spirits. This class will be co-taught by Rabbi Batsheva Meiri of Congregation Beth Ha Tephila (http://www.bethhatephila.orgcom) and Scott MacGregor, MS, LPC, CFLE. 


Class is limited to 12 participants. We will start a waiting list. A mandatory information session will be held on April 12, 5-7PM for all those registered and wait listed for the class.
