Yesterday, we practiced day 8 of Tishrei, which was 39 days into our 40 Days Elul Practice of Mussar Mindfulness with Rabbi Chasya, Founder & Spiritual Leader of The Institute for Holiness: Kehilat Mussar. This was our final session together before Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement. Mazal Tov, Congratulation, on completing this journey with us.

These were the texts used during the Live teaching and meditation:

Honor, respect, dignity, and love are due to each and every human being, not because of the greatness of their achievements, but because they are home to a soul that is inherently holy. Nobody created his or her own soul; everyone has been gifted with a rarefied essence.

— Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin (1749-1821), a forerunner of the Mussar movement, who explains that one should honor all people simply because they are the handiwork of God (Ruach Chaim on Pirkei Avot).
