January 3, 2011 — Every year we make promises to ourselves about losing weight, organizing our closets, or organizing our lives. Sometimes we keep the promise for a couple of weeks but rarely that long. Dr. Dan Gottlieb and his guests explore a different kind of New Year’s ritual: taking time for quiet reflection in order to listen to our deepest truths about who we are and what we want our lives to be about. Dan is joined by Rabbi Nancy Fuchs Kreimer, The Reverend Chaz Howard, and Sylvia Boorstein. Nancy Fuchs Kreimer is the Director of the Department of Multi-faith Studies and Initiatives at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College where she is Associate Professor of Religious Studies. Chaz Howard is chaplin at the University of Pennsylvania. And Sylvia Boorstein is a psychologist, author, and a founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California.
