The Yeud* Coach-Training Series

*How to find and integrate your life’s purpose

Rabbi Aryeh Nivin’s research institute, Machon HaAdam HaShalem, inaugurated this series this past Elul. We are now launching our second group of Yeud Coach Trainees.  This training course will provide you with Torah principles to help others discover their true calling. As you gain these important skills, you will accrue even greater satisfaction in paying it forward – helping your fellow man and woman to improve their own lives.

At the end of the series, participants will get a certificate of completion of this chabura. Students must pass several final examinations on the course material.

Quote from a previous participant:

“Rabbi Nivin’s Yeud Coaching Program was a fascinating introduction to central concepts in Judaism that are not really spoken about or dealt with in the wider Jewish world “out there.”

The concepts in this program provide one of the simplest and yet most comprehensive understanding of what Judaism is, deeply, that I’ve yet come across.”

This weekly chabura runs for 12 consecutive weeks. It will provide you with the skills for helping people to:

  • Identify their life’s purpose
  • Navigate internal conflicts about their life’s direction
  • Identify their central character flaws and learn strategies to transcend them
  • Learn how to achieve balance in life

The Challenging Marriage Chabura

This chabura is for women who are in difficult or trying marriages. It covers the unique distinctions and insights needed to navigate a challenging marriage.*
This chaburah has helped countless women find new hope with meaningful and profound insights. It will help you to:

  • Learn the Torah’s perspective on how to transcend difficulties
  • Connect with and be supported by other women going through similar difficulties
  • Discover which false beliefs are holding you back from moving forward
  • Experience vitality, transcendence and powerful joy, even during a trying marriage

* This chabura covers marriages with medium to serious complications: communication issues, a dysfunctional husband, a husband with mental illness, differing levels of Yiddishkeit or life goals, not feeling the ability to unify with one’s spouse and more.
