Awareness in Action: Becoming a Mensch Through Tikkun Middot Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

Can Jewish practice actually help transform our character? In this session, Rabbi Marc Margolius will describe how integrating mindfulness with attention to core middot (innate spiritual/ethical traits with which we are endowed as beings created in the Divine Image) can help us "catch ourselves" more often before we act or speak unwisely, and come closer to our better selves. Through Tikkun Middot practice, the small and large challenges of everyday life can become a series of opportunities for spiritual and ethical growth, and we can learn to react less often from engrained habit, and respond more often from our innate wisdom.
