How to deal with an aggressive child? How to balance discipline and love in a classroom? Self-expression versus nullification of self in marriage: when do you acquiesce, when do you fight? How is Tanya relevant to our lives today? How do we change from being mechanical Jews to becoming dynamic Jews? How do we deal with depression and anxiety?
These and other questions are addressed in the third episode of “MyLife: Chassidus Applied,” a weekly webcast on COLlive.com produced by the Meaningful Life Center showing how Chassidus can be applied to all areas of life.
In response to requests submitted after Episode 2, this broadcast will also offers concrete steps to dealing with the issues discussed.
“The goal of these broadcasts”, explains the host Rabbi Simon Jacobson, “is not just to address ‘what’ but ‘how.’ In addition to facts, we want to convey the Chassidic methodology – how Chassidus empowers us to live healthier lives. Our hope is that these broadcasts will help people apply Chassidus to every life situation, and also empower more mashpi’im to think this way too.”
Topics to be addressed in Sunday’s hour-long broadcast include:
· Dealing with an aggressive child
· Mechanical vs. dynamic Judaism
· Depression & anxiety
· Self-expression vs. nullification in religion & in relationships
· Desires: refraining (iskafya) vs channeling and transforming (ishapcha)
· Disciplining through love
