Mussar Mindfulness

“Striving for the Best Within Ourselves, Guided by Jewish Wisdom & Contemporary Practice.”

In 2009, we began our group with Everyday Holiness, by Alan Morinis. Then, we delved into Pirke Avot, the compendium of sayings from the Mishnah about how best to live one’s life. This year, we are working through A Code of Jewish Ethics: You Shall be Holy, by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin.

Reading from a Jewish text at each session facilitates our discussions and allows
us to hear personal reactions and varied perspectives of each other’s spiritual journeys. We welcome more participants for two reasons: First, the more people who
participate, the more our minds are stimulated with different stories and interpretive
directions. Secondly, expanding our group helps us practice sayings from Pirke Avot,
such as: "Who is wise? A person who learns from everyone he/she meets." Mussar teaches that nurturing our inner lives, a purpose of our monthly gatherings, enables us to better the world we live in. As a group, supporting each other with trust and respect, we gather to learn, to reflect, to guide one another, and to grow towards becoming the best persons we can be. Please join us! If you have questions, feel free
to call or email David Barton Phone: (615) 352-6442 - Email: Davibar@aol.com or
Martin Sir - Phone: (615) 419-8325 - Email: sirmartinlaw@aol.com
