Pragmatic Spirituality Discussion Group


Join an open conversation that will meet twice a month beginning in August to discuss a universal theme. The seed will be a brief inspiration by a spiritual thinker (i.e. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, Tosha Silver, John O’Donohue, Parker Palmer, Leonard Cohen, Rumi, Mary Oliver, and others who encourage inner dialogue and listening to one’s “inner teacher.”) Woven throughout will be examples of the Jewish perspective on attention to the soul, as well as how this inner work impacts our outer work - our jobs, relationships, and parenting.  

The group will address how we find purpose and meaning, how we navigate practical challenges in our daily lives, and how we mitigate stressors in this modern time.

The intent is to foster a community, however small, that supports inner work and applying spiritual thinking to daily life.  

The group will be facilitated by a holistic psychiatrist, Courtney Snyder, MD and a business & leadership advisor, Marty Snyder. Meet on Sundays in AJ’s Benovitz Library from 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. Below are the next upcoming date
