More Menchiness Without a Synagogue, Even If You've Never Heard of Mussar.

13 Weeks. 13 Emails.  5 Minutes a Day

Join Now and go at your own pace.

Begin to heal those things that cause you to get stuck in the same situation again and again...

1.
LEARN MUSSAR BY DOING

How we behave, how we show up is all that matters. In just a few minutes a day, you can live Jewish values to become a better person. 

2.
UNDERSTAND YOURSELF BETTER

Each week you'll focus on a different Soul Trait, and will quickly learn where you fall on the spectrum for each. We'll start with Humility, and the spectrum from arrogance to self-debasement.

3.
FEEL EMPOWERED TO CHANGE HABITS THAT UNDERMINE YOUR SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS

You'll pick one small action that will bring you closer to balance for each soul trait. For example, if you tend towards arrogance, you may choose to allow everyone else to speak before you do.

4.
EXPERIENCE MUSSAR IN COMMUNITY

Join Dr. Greg and dozens of others as we practice a full 13 week American Mussar Cycle together. Share experiences with people just like you in a private environment.

Be a Better Parent

Spiritual Parenting

While there is a lot of advice on how to parent the child, wouldn’t it be nice if we had an instruction manual explaining how to stay calm, make thoughtful choices, stress less and love more? Mussar is that manual.

CHANGE THE WAY YOU SEE THE WORLD

​"Greg's unique way of seeing the values on a scale of proportionality rather than absolutes helps me strive for balance and goodness in all of my relationships. Greg teaches how to incorporate Mussar practice into every decision making process, as he sees every crisis as a spiritual one and encourages us to find the sacred in the daily routine of our lives.
