Mussar facilitation requires a specific set of knowledge and skills. The Mussar Institute offers two facilitator training courses and a professional development network.

Facilitators lead courses over Zoom, moderate independent study and lead local courses in Jewish organizations.

YESOD is a 6-session foundational training in the basics of Mussar facilitation and is open to leaders with group facilitation experience. Successful graduates facilitate introductory and beginning TMI courses.

MANCHIM is an in-depth training program for leaders with significant Mussar and group facilitation experience. Successful graduates facilitate intermediate and advanced TMI courses. On request, we offer Manchim to a cohort of rabbis.

THE TMI FACILITATOR NETWORK supports the professional development of all TMI facilitators, providing meaningful opportunities to meet other TMI facilitators and grow spiritually.
