Awakening: Torah Mussar Mindfulness, Vayishlach, 8th Sitting
Welcome to The Institute for Holiness: Kehilat Mussar's 8th sitting and teaching on the weekly Torah/Hebrew Bible Parasha/Portion, this week called Vayishlach. We encounter our ancestor Yaakov, the 3rd Patriarch in the Jewish tradition, as we matures and faces wise and unwise decision making. We learn and grow from witnessing his behavior and developing our own inner distancing to witness our inner states. We practice insight meditation and two Mussar practices of mindfulness and forgiveness.
