Most of us live our day-to-day lives just trying to make it through the day—pay bills, pick up our kids, go to work, and maybe exercise or watch TV if we have a few minutes to spare. But what if we didn’t want to simply survive—what if we wanted to thrive? What if we wanted to help ourselves flourish?

Using the latest research on cognitive neuroscience and ancient Jewish texts, Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman, Founding Director of Sinai and Synapses, will explore the science of human flourishing and three actions that can help bring more vitality, joy and meaning into our lives—curiosity, wonder, and appreciation.
