“If I am I because I am I,
and you are you because you are you, then I am I and you are you.
But if I am I because you are you
and you are you because I am I,
then I am not I and you are not you!”
– The Kotzker Rebbe

Outline Of Sessions
Session 1: Existence and Reality
The first session distinguishes reality and existence as separate domains. This fundamental distinction serves as a foundation for understanding the nature of our relationship to ourselves, to others, and to Hashem. Your view of yourself and others, plus your experience of choice and free will alter profoundly. You will discover something entirely new about loshon hara and see how idolatry remains a personally relevant issue today. Many participants report that this first session dramatically alters their view of their spouse and their marriage, creating exciting new possibilities for these relationships.
Session 2: The Source of Results
The second session distinguishes what is at the source of all results. During this session, you will have an opportunity to personally transform an area of your life where you have an experience of being stuck, stop, or frustrated. We will provide you with a new set of tools that you can use to start accomplishing unprecedented results in any area of your life that matters to you and experience a new sense of freedom, relevance, and purpose in areas of your Jewish life that may be occurring as somewhat frustrating or difficult, such as adherence to or performance of mitzvos.
Session 3: Integrity Is Simple
The third session will examine the relationship between integrity, morality, and ethics and leave you with an entirely new relationship to your word and a methodology for restoring workability to areas of your life where things are not working or not working as well as you would like them to. You will engage in an inquiry about the word that you have given to Hashem, to your spouse, to your children, to your community, and to yourself. The result of this inquiry will be a new and inspiring awareness as a Jew of the personal nature of having received the Torah at Mount Sinai.
Session 4: You’re Always Winning the Game You’re Playing
The fourth session brings all of the distinctions together to uncover what is at the source of you not winning in areas of your life that are important to you. You will develop the skills need to start inventing games worthy of your life so that you can start producing results consistent with your commitments NOW. You will have the opportunity to create new and exciting stratagems that bring fun, adventure, spontaneity, excitement, and creativity to any area of your Jewish life.
