Refuat Hanefesh: A Healing of the Spirit is a safe and loving gathering where people struggling with mental illness and brain disorders, their family, and friends can meet confidentially and openly name how their spiritual life/faith can help with mental health challenges.
There are Tuesday evening sessions (facilitated by Rabbi Deborah Bronstein and Dr. Jed Shapiro) and Wednesday daytime sessions (facilitated by Rabbi Deborah Bronstein and Reggie Gray, LCSW). There will be no meeting if the day falls on a Jewish or national holiday. This group is open to all members of the Jewish community.
This is a drop-in group, though we’ve seen that people who make the effort to attend regularly tend to get more out of the experience. There is no need to register. There is no cost to participate.
Together we will share and hear how faith and a reliance on a Higher Power can be helpful when coping with this illness. We also share methods that help us move through times of difficulty and articulate our sources of hope and strength.
