Do you ever wonder what concrete steps you can take to be happy, like seriously happy. Not just get by your days, which is what most of us do, but be in a joyful state of mind. You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess, I’m Yael Trusch your host. Today, I have the pleasure of bringing back to the show Rus Devora Wallen, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist. Rus Devorah is a friend of the show. She was with us back in Episode 49 where we talked all about meditation, her journey with meditation and her eventual development of Toratherapeutics, her therapy practice which incorporates the teachings and wisdom of the Torah.
And today she’s going to teach us concrete steps to impact our level of happiness and wellbeing, AND our emotional intelligence – ever heard of that term? You will now. And of course, we are going to learn how all of this is part of Judaism – not like oh by the way Judaism happens to talk about it, but Judaism has been telling us all these techniques for thousands of years. Some of us just never knew it! Myself included!
You’ve probably heard me say before that Judaism is not just about ritual, but a G-dly wisdom that encompasses every single aspect of our lives. So of course that means our body, minds are souls! So lets get to it. Here’s the lovely Rus Devorah Wallen.
You can find Rus Devorah at Toratherapeutics.com.
Listen to her talk about her personal journey towards Jewish observance, as well as everything you ever wanted to know about Meditation and the Jewish approach to it in Episode 49 of Jewish Latin Princess Podcast!
