INTRODUCTORY AND BEGINNING COURSES

For entry-level and beginning study of Mussar, it is important to experience each aspect of traditional Mussar: group or va'ad-based study, partner or chevruta study, individual reading and practices including contemplation or visualization, chanting or phrase repetition, journaling or cheshbon ha'nefesh, and kabbalot or the creation of exercises.

TMI recommends a full year of study in these va'ad-based courses before moving on to lecture courses or a themed course. 

Five Steps to a Better You and Pathway I, II, and III fulfills that recommendation.
