You don’t need to be a mathematician to know that half is less than whole. But can you say that what is true in the world of numbers is also true in the world of the psyche? Are you more complete when you feel sated or when you feel wanting? Can a person ever truly be complete? Doesn’t the very nature of the human spirit dictate restlessness, a constant need to grow, always seeking more?
Nothing is as complete as a broken heart, say the Chassidic masters. A vacuum can be far more powerful than what fills the vacuum. But how can we use this principle to overcome struggles and challenges in life? How can we tap into this to build and maintain healthy relationships?
Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this Shekalim workshop as he discusses the pitfalls and dangers of comfort zones and how wanting is always better than having; how feeling sated and complete undermines your ability to grow. Discover how love is defined by the counter-intuitive power of incompleteness — how being half can be more than being whole.
