ABOUT THE COURSE

In this course, we will cover strife, personal weakness, the human condition, and the daily battles that rage between our G-dly soul and our animal soul. You will discover that not all conflict is bad; on the contrary, it can be channeled into a greater good. You will gain a profound appreciation for friends, family, and humanity as a whole. But, most importantly, you will gain a deeper insight into the world’s most important person, you.

LESSON 1: DON’T BRING REASON TO AN EGO FIGHT

From Cain and Abel to your inconsiderate brother-in-law. For time immemorial, people have butted heads with one another. At times with good reason, more often with irrationality and short-sightedness. In this class, we will search for the essence and strength of strife, and discuss how to get unstuck from its pull utilizing the paths of peace given to us by the Torah.

LESSON 2: WHAT’S MINE IS WHOSE?

What is so bad about someone who says, “What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is yours.” Who is the mystery “group” that helped G-d create the earth? In this class, we will look at the clothes on your back, the cycle of humanity that makes the world tick, why we need others to exist, how to extract fire from water, and how you can connect with people who are the antithesis of yourself.

LESSON 3: MIND OVER ANGER

The search for the soul is on, and not to give too much away, but it's not where you'd think it is. In this class, we will deconstruct the functions of the heart and mind, and explain how they relate to connecting to G-d and running the body. We will meet our inner ministers, and they're celestial counterparts, and finally understand the secret path to resolving conflict and building stronger relationships.

LESSON 4: FIX IT, DON’T FIGHT IT

In our final class, we will explore three practical, usable methods for resolving conflict. Using the mind as the key, we will discuss the power of the individual, the strength of the collective. The importance of self-examination and introspection, and understanding why trees in a forest grow tall and mighty, while a tree growing alone can quickly lose its way.

This is a facinating four week course and it will be streamed on Zoom and Facebook-Live
