at Heska Amuna Synagogue (online)

More Info / Registration

In Jewish, Buddhist, and secular communities, mindfulness meditation is often used to manage stress — and it has been scientifically proven to do so many, many times. But what about the stresses of 2020: the pandemic, the election, racial justice uprisings, climate-change-fueled catastrophes, and who knows what’s around the corner? And when does healthy “managing stress” turn into an unhealthy retreat from the world? In this talk, Rabbi Dr. Jay Michaelson will share both theoretical and practical teachings from these multiple traditions on how the contemplative life can enrich a life of engagement and resilience.
