WATCH VIDEO Elul Essentials: Holy Self-Esteem

by chaya rivka z

Rebbe Nachman of Breslov offers unique mystical and psychospiritual insights into the incredible spiritual work we are capable of in Elul, in preparation for Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur. In this class with Chaya Rivka Zwolinski on how Holy Self Esteem is essential to the spiritual tasks at hand, we discuss: The Hidden Hints of the Betula (Virgo) in the Jewish Zodiac, the Sign for Elul Rebbe Nachman’s Famous Lesson, Torah Vav and How Finding a Personal Balance of Humility and Self Esteem is the Way to Joy, Ani L’ Dodi v’Dodi Li (I am to my beloved as my beloved is to me) How this Famous Expression from Song of Songs Describes the Loving Relationship between Hashem and Us and is Reflected in the Psycho-Mystical Process of Returning & Returning ,Why we Struggle with Self Esteem and a Spiritual Approach to Healing our Low Self Esteem, And much more…

Elul is famously an acronym for אני לדודי ודודי לי; I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine. During Elul we’re reminded that we are Hashem’s beloved and He is ours. But what if we have a hard time connecting with this love? And what if the focus on return and correction leaves us with feelings of inferiority or depression?

Everybody talks about self-esteem and its importance. But secular ideas of self-esteem can be toxic to our neshamot, souls. Rebbe Nachman’s insights into the importance of developing what I call Holy Self-Esteem (vs. unhealthy self-esteem/narcissism) are relevant year-round, and especially so as we approach the Days of Awe. Come join me for this special talk about how to do Teshuvah while building Holy Self-Esteem in Elul–and always.
