Currently learning “With Heart in Mind” by Alan Morinis
Soul Journeys with Estie Tolwin
Join Estie Tolwin for a weekly class on spiritual character development that will challenge you to take responsibility for the relationships in your life - including the most important one - with yourself. You’ll gain a stronger appreciation for the finer things in life - Judaism, family, and community - and discover how they can help you be the greatest version of yourself.
About “With Heart in Mind”:
Morini’s book lays out a spiritual practice for developing a strong and open heart—drawn from Judaism’s Mussar tradition. Mussar draws from the vast storehouse of Jewish wisdom, law, revelation, and text and brings it home in a way that is completely practical. Judaism teaches that Torah provides the blueprint for human experience— the more of it we acquire, the more we gain a clearer, truer perspective on life and learn how to navigate its pathways.
The phrase "acquiring Torah" is code for the process of internalizing this wisdom to bring about a genuine transformation of the inner self. In short, accessible chapters, this book describes forty-eight methods through which we can acquire Torah—and turns them into a straightforward practice. These methods include cultivating humility, joy, awe, good heartedness, closeness with friends, not taking credit for oneself, judging others favorably, and so on. The fruit of working through each quality or method is a refined soul and a strong and open heart.
