TRAINING for clergy, chaplains and professionals on spiritual dimensions of later life

As a seasoned trainer, rabbi and chaplain, I can help you or your organization gain the skills to foster wholeness by addressing the spiritual dimension of later life. I love crafting dynamic, interactive workshops and conferences for clergy, pastoral care, human service and healthcare professionals. I will happily work with you to design a learning experience to meet your group’s unique context and goals.
