201 Faith and Confidence (Emunah Vebitachon)

201 Faith and Confidence (Emunah Vebitachon)

This is the 2nd foundational course taught at Torat Hanefesh (the first three being Rectifying the Ego). It is based on an article by the same name in Harav Ginsburgh’s volume, Lev Lada’at and provides an in-depth review and discussion of faith in God and self-confidence, what each is and what role each plays in our Avodat Hashem; whether they contradict or complement one another; and, how function to create mental and psychological health.
Just as selflessness and lowliness function together to rectify the ego, faith and confidence function together in bringing us to fulfill our mission in life. This is a year-long course.

302 Restoring Emotional Health

Emotional health is necessary for leading a productive family and social life. When the emotional faculties are dysfunctional they either fall into a negative state or are even replaced by their opposites. In this course, we will survey the Torah’s treatment of the fallen states of the emotions, their opposite states (represented by the 7 Canaanite nations) and how to restore their proper, healthy functions.

304 Stories that Heal the Soul

The Ba’al Shem Tov used storytelling to heal souls. In this course we will delve into the wealth of stories told about the Ba’al Shem Tov and try to hear them as if he were telling them himself. In this way, we will learn the torah that the Ba’al Shem Tov taught first-hand and reveal the power to heal the soul that is latent in every true story.
