Anxiety, financial worries and marital challenges are just a few examples of the universally-experienced pressures we encounter on a daily basis. The overarching question remains: Does Judaism have answers for us? Or must we turn to other sources for our psychological needs?
In the fourth of “MyLife: Chassidus Applied,” a weekly webcast on COLlive.com produced by the Meaningful Life Center, Rabbi Simon Jacobson shows how Chassidus has the answers and can be applied to all areas of life.
“After over two centuries of mesiras nefesh of the Rebbeim for Chassidus and Chassidim,” declared Rabbi Jacobson, “the time has come to reclaim the most precious stone of the crown given to us to both prevent problems and to heal from any that come our way.”
The broadcast answers people’s questions in simple, clear language while being heavily sourced. Each episode is jam-packed with eye-opening advice from the Rabbeim, gleaned from uncovering surprising gems in their letters, sichos and maamorim that address our personal issues with disarming relevance.
Topics to be addressed in this hour-long broadcast include:
· Dealing with depression and anxiety
· Fighting internet addiction
· Why is Tznius associated with so much negativity and hardship?
· Is there room for self-compassion in Judaism or do we have to be hard on ourselves?
· What practical steps does Tanya provide in dealing with temptations and other challenges?
