The Kavanah Connection: Living with Intention for a More Meaningful Life

with Rachel Gans-Boriskin '96

Tuesday, October 15th, 1pm, Hiatt Career Center, 1st floor, Udsan

GansThe Hebrew term Kavanah refers to the frame of mind and heart that the Rabbis felt was needed for prayer.  Kavanah is about bringing awareness and intention into your daily routines and investing them with meaning.  Kavanah, while valuable as a religious concept, is also useful in our secular lives. Too often we find ourselves “going through the motions.”   Our lives can lack direction and meaning.  Moving through our busy lives we find that we are not living our values or valuing our lives.  In this workshop we identify personal values and generate ways of honoring those values in everyday life.  All students welcome.  Please RSVP in B.hired.
