Are you a curious blogger or journal writer, a beginner or published author, or just interested in getting to know more about yourself? Have you ever wanted to write from a deeper place inside you? Nourished by the hidden wellsprings of ancient Jewish wisdom, Rebbe Nachman’s stories are enchanting, dramatic, at times even amusing. But most of all they are elixirs that reveal and heal the soul. In this two-part workshop, we’ll take key concepts from these stories for writing prompts, and then write in your choice of several genres, such as narrative essay or memoir, poetry, lists, expository essay or free-form journaling, and more. Be inspired and discover new aspects of self.

Chaya Rivka Zwolinski teaches the wisdom of the renowned Chassidic master Rebbe Nachman live as well as online at Breslov.org and BreslovCampus.org; blogs for PsychCentral.com; is co-author of Therapy Revolution (HCI), and The Parent-Child Dance (Feldheim) and other books.

You’re Invited: Holy Self Esteem For Jewish Women

REGISTER NOW for Sunday, April 15th JMAC Brunch

You’re Invited to Learn More about Holy, Healthy Self Esteem for Jewish Women

You’re invited: Join Amanda Jones and JMAC (Jewish Mothers & Children) for a Special Brunch and  Powerful Talk Based on the Teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov,  with Chaya Rivka Zwolinski of BRI Women & The Breslov Research Institute

Despite growing up in a society where encouragement, praise, and rewards were given freely both in schools and many homes, women have never believed in themselves less.

What is going on and can we change course to develop a personal, positive view of self?

Chaya Rivka Zwolinski says yes. She’s written and taught extensively on the topics of self-esteem and self-knowledge for women. Her work is based on Azamra! and many other teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, the 18th century Jewish leader who predicted that low self-esteem and lack of belief in self would be a problem that could only be addressed fully from a psychospritual perspective.

Using inspirational insights and practical techniques, learn what positive self-actualization can bring to your life. Don’t miss out on discovering your inner strength and beauty–register today.

REGISTER ONLINE NOW

DATE AND TIME: Sun, April 15, 2018, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

LOCATION:  Home of Amanda Jones, Founder of JMAC, 7 Sunshine Lane, Livingston, NJ 07039

Mazel Tov! Breslov for Women

Mazel Tov! The Breslov Research Institute (BRI) is delighted to introduce our first-ever program devoted exclusively to women, BRI Women.

Women have had a pivotal role in Breslov over the centuries. Rebbe Nachman’s mother Faiga, and grandmother, Udel the Baal Shem Tov’s daughter, were greatly respected for their knowledge and wisdom, dedication to the Chassidic movement, and emunah. Since then, many thousands of women have built homes permeated with Breslov inspiration.

For several year it has been apparent to everyone at the Breslov Research Institute that there’s a need for inspirational and educational Breslov programming, Uman travel, books and more, just for women. You’ve asked for women’s programming –and now it’s here!

Please visit BRI Women now and take a look at our web site. You’ll find lists of programs, articles, and video classes as well as an important announcement about our first-ever Breslov book by women for women, Rebbe Nachman: A Woman’s Treasury.

Don’t forget to share BRI Women with your friends via email or social media.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you and wish you a very Happy Chanukah.
