Cultivating Character with Eliza Scheffler, Pastoral Care Intern

This 9-session series will focus on the cultivation of character strengths: transcendence, humor, humanity and social justice, courage, wisdom, temperance, passing on wisdom to the young, appreciating the cycles of life, including its end. These traits are drawn from the book that serves as the basis for this series: Lighter As We Go, Virtues, Character Strengths, and Aging, by Mindy Greenstein, PhD and Jimmie Holland, MD. Methods for the course will include personal reflection, analyzing texts and stories, mindfulness practice, and group discussion. Sign up at the Front Desk or call 212-243-3670.
