Rebbe Nachman on Joy and Suffering
February 4, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$18
We all encounter suffering — our own and that of loved ones, colleagues, and strangers. We want to support people and find meaning, both in moments of great joy and deep suffering. We will explore seminal writings of the great spiritual master Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810), in which he offers frameworks for spiritual understanding and practical advice for dealing with the extremes of the human condition. Self-transcendence, prayer, friendship and faith are some of the themes we will encounter as we study the work of this increasingly relevant personality.
ABOUT THIS SPEAKER: Rabbi Dr. Ariel Burgeris a writer, artist, teacher, and rabbi whose work combines spirituality, creativity, and strategies for social change. A lifelong student of Elie Wiesel, he spent years studying the great wisdom traditions, and now applies those teachings to urgent contemporary questions. When Ariel’s not learning or teaching, he is creating music, art, and poetry. He lives outside of Boston with his family.
