Paradigm Shift with Sarah Deitsch

Mondays at 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

Paradigm Shift is an elevator ride to the heights of what is possible. Synchronize yourself with the mission for which you were placed on earth, and learn to recognize the inherent goodness and perfection in yourself, in others, and in every circumstance of your life.

 

Distilled into six succinct lessons, this empowering course offers a revolutionary outlook on life, culled from the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory.

SEEING A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN
Parts of life you enjoy. Others, you just can’t stand. Without being naive, is it possible to see only the good in everything? How can we find the positive spark in old age, work, struggle--even arrogance, evil, and death? A sophisticated understanding of reality uncovers a world in which there is only opportunity, positivity, and goodness.

REALIZING YOUR POTENTIAL
The soul is not a recessive gene. With every movement of the body, its innate perfection finds expression. Discovering this for yourself will not only boost your self-esteem and improve your relationships, but will also lead you to demand more of yourself and push your limits to redefine what is possible.

MINDING YOUR MISSION
We are all so alike, yet so different. Each of us was endowed with a unique set of talents and circumstances precisely because there is a specific life-mission for us to fulfill. How do you utilize this custom toolbox of fate and skill to decipher your individual purpose is in this world?

SYNCHING WITH THE DIVINE
Who is the ideal religionist? The dutiful follower who submits completely to the will of a higher power? Or he who integrates, internalizes, and owns his beliefs--to cultivate a personal relationship with G‑d, and become a leader in his own right? This lesson questions the foundations of our perception of religion.

REDEFINING FAILURE
We all make mistakes. Such is life. But why was it intended to be this way? This lesson explores how failure is not an anomaly in the design of creation, but the tool through which the highest form of success is carved.

OPENING OUR EYES
The purpose of creation is finally within reach. Despite tensions in parts of the globe, revolutionary changes are taking place in technology, in politics, and in the human spirit—many bearing markings of an impending biblical redemption. How do we awaken ourselves to this reality—to recharge for the sprint to the finish line?

Achieving Happiness with                                   

Rabbi Levi Andrusier

Thursdays at 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

 

 

How Happiness Thinks is much more than a tool to boost your happiness. It is an exciting journey into your own mind and psyche. Drawing on classical Jewish and mystical teachings, this course will present you with a deeper understanding of yourself, and help you flourish by suggesting practical advice which, when implemented, will radically enhance the happiness quotient of your life.

 

You'll also learn how the science of positive psychology is now corroborating what Judaism has always known about what makes us happy.

 

 

THE JOY OF BEING YOU
Finding a Self-Concept of Happiness
How you think about yourself is crucial to your happiness. What is the self-concept that yields happiness, protects against the misery of low self-esteem, and avoids self-centeredness?

THE JOY OF PURPOSE
Facing Stress with Patience, Mindfulness, and Hope
Stress is an impediment to happiness. How can we rise above the everyday worries and frustrations, whether they are about the present or future, and retain our joie du vivre?

THE JOY OF HAVING
Learning the Art of Gratitude
Good fortune—wealth, beauty, genius, or power—don’t necessarily lead to more happiness. But is there a way to build joy from our good circumstances? How do we master the art of experiencing the goodness of life?

THE JOY OF STRUGGLE
Exploiting Our Shortcomings as Sources of Happiness
Our flaws and deficiencies can drain us of our happiness. How might we succeed in reframing our challenges and deficiencies as joy-inspiring opportunities of cosmic proportion?

WHEN JOY SEEMS ELUSIVE
Coping with the Pain of Loss
The loss of a loved one changes our lives forever. What can help us cope through these difficult moments of grief and bring us back to emotional equilibrium?

THE JOY OF THE SPIRIT
Exploring the Deeper Dimensions of Happiness
Research suggests that meaning and spirituality can make us happier. Why is this so? Discover how spirituality and meaning can help you take your happiness to greater heights.
