How can spirituality guide us in difficult times? Today's guest has an answer that may surprise you.
Rabbi Dr. Abraham J. Twerski MD served as director of the department of psychiatry at St. Francis Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
He has lectured extensively around the world on topics such as stress, self-esteem, and spirituality, and as a spokesperson for recovery - inspiring and healing and well-being for those in need.
He has authored over eighty books, and he traces his ancestry back to the Baal Shem Tov, a spiritual master of Judaism who founder of the Chassidic movement.
In today's episode, he addresses some of the unique challenges of our time - the quest for happiness, and how so often this gets confused with the quest for pleasure. He shares his advice on how to deal with times of stress - such as the current, unprecedented situation with COVID-19 - reminding us how to cope, with ancient wisdom and modern sensibility.
