Sunday, April 22  Jewish Mindfulness and Meditation - Tazria-Mezora: Rumors Spread by Our Chattering Minds: The Rabbis compare the contagion of leprosy to the infectious nature of gossip spreading rapidly through a community. Similarly, our human brains are constantly racing, theorizing, and bringing up unrelated memories. Reality is sometimes obscured by our overactive imaginations. With practice, we can learn not to believe everything our subconscious tells us, and recognize the truth of the moment.
Sunday, April 29 Make Yourself More: Visualizing Care Relationships
In Visualizing Care Relationships: An Introduction to the Atlas CareMap, Karen Purze will introduce the Atlas CareMap. CareMaps can be used to create simple, hand-drawn representations of interactions and dependencies between important people in your life. This workshop will be especially useful for people who are -- or expect to be -- active in helping a parent, friend, or spouse during an illness or aging. CareMaps help identify risk, opportunities, duplication of effort, and gaps in personal networks.

The is the first in a series of programs developed by the Sinai Caring Community. Join us to hear more!
