10. Holy Chutzpah
“You’ve got some nerve!” The word “chutzpah”is often used to refer to inappropriate boldness or rudeness. But it can also be a complimentary term. Rebbe Nachman of Breslov explained the concept of holy chutzpah,the kind of boldness we each need to have in order to follow through on our highest intentions no matter what others may say or think .In fact, it takes a certain boldness for us, as finite beings, to open our mouths and pray to the Creator of the universe. Join Rabbi Fleer as we explore Rebbe Nachman’s inspiring teachings on this topic. (one-time lecture, min 1 ½ hours)

11. Honoring our Parents without Dishonoring Ourselves
During their lifetimes and after death, parents never cease to be the primal source of our emotional strength and vulnerability. And this itself is often a disturbing realization. Even as we struggle against real or perceived negativity, our lives are lived in response to their influence. Ultimately, to achieve inner peace, we must come to terms with our childhood and learn to honor our parents as they exist in ourselves. This 4 part workshop will include psychological insights and guided visualizations; exercises in Forgiveness, and discussions of Jewish guidelines for honoring parents and exceptions to the rule. (4 part workshop or individual lecture)
