What's the right thing to do? An approach to ethical decision-making integrating Mussar and Mindfulness with a systems perspective

Mussar is an approach to ethical character development emerging from Jewish tradition.  Mindfulness refers to a moment-to-moment, nonjudgmental, full sensory awareness emerging from Eastern meditation traditions.  This experiential workshop will use a systems perspective to integrate these traditions to develop approaches to ethical decision-making in organizational, educational and clinical practice.
