Inner Ladder: Continuing Mussar Steps is the continuation program for those who have completed either Seeking Everyday Holiness or Gates of Everyday Holiness.

Groups continue to study as a va’ad and in chevruta, with a focus on six middot: generosity, enthusiasm, silence, compassion, lovingkindness, and gratitude. Each middah unit offers lesson outlines for the group facilitator following a similar format as Seeking Everyday Holiness or Gates of Everyday Holiness.

You’ll receive:

  • A variety of texts from both modern and traditional Mussar sources
  • Discussion questions to help deepen your own understanding or to guide study with a partner
  • Extensive suggestions and guidance for a consistent personal Mussar practice
  • Short Mussar quotations to be used for reciting and chanting and to lead group discussions
  • Stories and personal experiences relating to each middah

By purchasing the program materials, you agree not to re-sell or share to any individual or group outside of your congregation/organization, all materials are copyrighted by The Mussar Institute.

  • Training and books are not included in the Inner Ladder program as it is a follow-up to SEH, POM, YSBH, and Gates.
