Description
"You shall be holy," teaches the Bible. The masters of the Jewish Mussar tradition have crafted a roadmap to help people approach that lofty goal. Mussar is a system of introspective practices that can help you identify and break through the obstacles to your inherent holiness, using methods that are easy to integrate into daily life.
"Every Day, Holy Day "is an essential companion for anyone who wants to experience the life-changing gifts of Mussar. The program laid out in this book focuses on 26 traits ("middot")--such as loving-kindness, strength, generosity, compassion, honor, and equanimity--each of which takes center stage for a week of contemplation and exercises, in order to develop and refine that quality in yourself.
Alan Morinis invites you to follow the Mussar path with him for a year. It is remarkably simple, and also remarkably effective in helping you overcome negative tendencies and strengthen positive ones--and to reveal your innate holiness in the process.
