The Mussar Institute presents an annual live webinar series led by Mussar experts. The series is a benefit of membership. This year: Calming the Storm: Mussar Practices for the Heart and Soul in Troubling Times.
Theme: We are living in stormy times. The political and economic climate is troubling. Terrorism and senseless hates crime lurk around the corner. Nuclear war threatens. Relationships with those closest to us are strained. Many people struggle with the challenges of modern parenting or the demands of caring for aging parents.
Though our world often has us spinning out of control, the wise King Solomon tells us, “There is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9). Despite feelings that we might be ill-equipped to deal with today’s challenges, deep down we know that our situation is not new. Many previous generations have dealt with challenges that have threatened to overwhelm. Some simply survived, while others rose to life’s tests and lived life fully and joyfully.
In our webinar series, we explore centuries-old, traditional Mussar practices that have been developed by masters and tested by generations to reveal how Mussar can be applied to today’s chaotic modern world.
Registration for this year’s webinar is closed. However, if you are interested in next year’s live series, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
