Worrier to Warrior


Worrier to Warrior combines positive psychology with Jewish wisdom to explore questions such as: Is there a meaning to life that makes even our difficulties meaningful? Am I just what happens to me or do I have a deeper core? How can I get off the “Hedonic Treadmill,” the sense that even life’s successes ring hollow?  “All too often people are thrown off their path in life by hardships that sink them into negative emotions or anxiety,” explained Rabbi Naftali Silberberg of JLI’s Brooklyn, New York headquarters. “In this course, we learn to face our challenges by understanding our lives in a deeper context.”


Professor Steven M. Southwick (MD) of the Department of Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine has endorsed the course: “It is well-known that positive emotions rest at the heart of overall well-being and happiness. But how to effectively enhance positive emotion remains challenging. Worrier to Warrior approaches this challenge from an insightful perspective grounded in contemporary psychology and Jewish literature. …this is an exciting and very impressive course unlike any I have seen.”
