The sustained uncertainty, grief and fear of the last several years has left many of us unsure of how to harness our emotions towards hope, possibility, growth and anchoring. With an ever changing reality we vacillate between a myriad of emotions. So what does Judaism think about and ask of us when it comes to our emotional well being? What are we to do when anger burns inside of us in our personal lives? How do we navigate the global anger coursing through the world today?  How can we cultivate a heart of joy? What happens when we are blocked by life circumstances and joy seems elusive and distant?  How do we find hope in dark periods of time? 

Join Rabbi Yolkut for two 3 week sessions (In-Person) in which we will explore how the tradition deals with the universal and challenging myriad of human emotions and how they intersect with a religious and spiritual world view. Study texts (translations provided) from the Torah all the way through modernity that ask these questions and offer deep exploration of the panacea of emotions we all experience.Gain some practical skills to work on cultivating an intentional spiritual life.
