COURSE OVERVIEW
Life can be a treadmill - as we go through the motions day after day without ever asking why or seeking what really matters to us. This course, prepared by the author of the best-selling book, Toward a Meaningful Life, is determined to change that. Here are strategies, tips, and suggestions for not only discovering where your true meaning lies, but in acutally making it a part of your daily existence. Whether you are dealing with family relationships or job satisfation, this course will help you look behond a crisis to find the lessons within. Most important of all, these sessions will help you see life as the mysterious, challenging, and satisfying wonder that it really is.

Lesson One: DISCOVERING YOUR PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT
No business can function without a mission statement. Neither can you. This lesson will establish the foundation for a meaningful life—revealing and understanding why you are here.

Lesson Two: MARRIAGE, LOVE, AND INTIMACY
How can you nourish the richness and depth of a loving relationship? We’ll explore the spiritual factors that can make a relationship greater than the sum of its parts — with a passion that’s eternal, purposeful, comfortable, and which truly reflects our Jewish values and attitudes.

Lesson Three: HOME AND FAMILY
Building a home, raising a family — these are the most important sources of warmth and security in our lives. Learn how to nurture and strengthen these vital bonds that embrace us with comfort and connection.

Lesson Four: WORK, CHARITY, AND WEALTH 
We all need to earn a living, but that doesn’t have to consign us to a plodding drudgery that leaves us feeling half-alive. We’ll explore the ins and out of job satisfaction, as well as ways to put money in its proper perspective and keep materialism from overpowering our G‑d-given, spiritual natures. 

Lesson Five: PAIN, LOSS, AND ANXIETY
Pain can intrude on our lives at any time. All-consuming, it is a call for attention that launches the natural process of healing. We'll explore ways of coping with difficulty, finding a balance between grieving for what has been lost and feeling hope for the future.

Lesson Six: RELIGION AND FAITH
Faith is not only the stuff of childhood. It can open us up to the mystery of life, the wonder that defies reason. In this session, we work toward a personal grappling with truth as well as a more mature, dynamic relationship with our Creator.
