Spiritual Wisdom to Counter Addiction: Teachings from the Piasezcner Rebbe

Rabbi Natan Margalit will lead us into writings of the Piaseczner Rebbe, Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapiro (1889 - 1943). For Rav Kalonymus, addiction is the inevitable result of ignoring the sacred Oneness that connects all creation. We are seeing that dynamic unfold with tragic consequences not only for individuals and communities but also for our politics and for the earth. We will use his guided imagery as well as text study, discussion and meditation to get a taste of this vitally needed spiritual, psychological and cultural shift from addiction to holiness.
