“Rabbi Stacy Friedman in conversation with Sylvia Boorstein”
A discussion about resilience in turbulent times. How mindfulness can help keep us balanced when the world around us seems out of balance.
What a fabulous afternoon, attended by almost 100 people! How timely the subject matter. No doubt that the attendees left feeling uplifted, hopeful and certainly more connected to many others who feel as they do. A great community building afternoon, with a wonderful High Tea as well.
