SoulQuest: The Journey, Through Life, Death, and Beyond is a six-week class starting Monday, November 2nd. Offered by Chabad Lubavitch of Boulder County, classes are held from noon to 1:30 pm at the Jewish Enrichment Center, 4740 Table Mesa Dr., Boulder (course fee is $79, and bagel lunch is available for an additional $5.00 per week).
This course will not be exploring great Jewish figures in history. Instead, it will be discussing the soul. “Yes, you know you have a soul, but how can you understand it or connect with it? Where does my soul come from? Where does it go when I die? Do we believe in an afterlife? What is the point of saying Kaddish or yizkor — can I really connect my loved ones who passed on? What is the meaning — or the point — of visiting the cemetery on a yahrtziet?” These are some of the topics for the course.
This course is not a philosophical one, but an experiential one. It does not attempt to prove the existence of a soul, nor of the afterlife, nor of heaven and hell and reincarnation. Instead, it shares the intuitive truths that have inspired generations of Jews to live more fully and to face death fearlessly. It explains how those who left this world are not lost to us, nor us to them. It allows us the opportunity to resolve what death has left unresolved, and thereby to find peace and closure.
The Jewish Learning Institute and Chabad of Boulder invite you to discover the odyssey of your soul. Find out where it came from, where it is going, and what it is doing right now. Explore the limits of mortality, and how we can better appreciate the true life of those who are living. as well as those who have passed on. Know yourself, discover your purpose, and acquire the tools to navigate life’s challenges. Find out more about the course and register on-line here or by calling Mrs. Chany Scheiner at 303.494.1638.
