MUSSAR is a little-known but ancient Jewish spiritual tradition that provides practical tools for soulful living. Recently, hundreds of people have been rediscovering the beauty, power and wisdom of Mussar teachings and practices, under the guidance of Alan Morinis (author of "Climbing Jacob’s Ladder") and Shirah Bell.
The goal of Mussar practice is to foster a personal sense of "shlemut," Hebrew for "wholeness." Mussar shows you the steps to take to work through your personal spiritual curriculum and to move closer to the inner wholeness that is your potential and your calling.
Rabbi Eliyahu Lopian (1876-1970) defines the work of Mussar as "Making the heart feel what the mind knows." Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe (1914-2005) calls it "building your interior world."
THE COURSE IN MUSSAR is a highly regarded Distance Learning Program that offers practical Jewish spiritual wisdom to transform your life. There are no prerequisites of any kind.
A new session of THE COURSE IN MUSSAR begins October 30, 2005.
