The Enneagram and Kabbalah: Reading Your Soul

(Begins Wednesday, November 6)

Instructor: Rabbi Allan Tuffs

 

We recently concluded the High Holy Day cycle in which we were encouraged to undergo Cheshbon Nefesh – deep introspection of our lives with the intention of gaining awareness of our strengths and weaknesses, enabling us to mindfully chart new paths for our lives.

This program, based on the insights of Rabbi Howard Addison, blends two flavors of mystical psychology, the Ennegram and Kabbalah, helping us grow in self-awareness and our understanding of others.

Held on Wednesdays for four weeks (4 classes) from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM, please bring lunch. Free for members; Non-member price $30.
