Psychotherapy and Kabbalah: a Two-Part Workshop

With Jennifer Convissor, LCSW, RMT & Rabbi Ben Newman


This two-part workshop was collaboratively created by Rabbi Ben Newman (founder of Shtiebel) and Jennifer Convissor, LCSW, RMT (founder of Infinity Wellness and LiveWork Solutions) to explore how the wisdom of ancient Jewish mysticism, Kabbalah, applies to and complements modern day psychotherapy. These are creative, interactive workshops for those seeking deeper insight into their personal challenges or inspiration to find inner strength, as well as for those in healing professions who would like to gain a unique perspective on helping others. They are appropriate for everyone, regardless of background, beliefs, or lifestyle. It is an all-inclusive environment where all are welcome.

Each part may be taken individually, or they can be taken together.

To register for one workshop, select the date of the one you would like to attend, click on the "Tickets" button, and enter the amount of $40.

To register for both parts together, go to either date, click on the "Tickets" button, and enter the amount of $60.


**Jennifer Convissor’s early studies in creative arts, dreamwork, energy healing and nutrition led her to pursue a career in holistic psychotherapy. While earning her bachelor's degree from Sarah Lawrence College, she concentrated on psychology, both individual and cultural. Her graduate work focused on clinical practice with children and families, and she earned her Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Fordham University. Professionally, her experience includes groupwork with every age group, from school-aged children to senior citizens, community organizing, crisis intervention, as well as individual and family counseling.


**Rabbi Ben Newman is the founder and spiritual leader of Shtiebel, a new paradigm Jewish community in the Rivertowns of Westchester, NY. He served for 7 years as the rabbi of Congregation Har Shalom in Fort Collins, CO, along with his wife Rabbi Shoshana Leis. Rabbi Ben received a B.A. from Skidmore College in Religion and Culture, an M.A. in Jewish Studies from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, and rabbinical ordination from the Academy for Jewish Religion in New York. He previously served as the Associate Rabbi for JRF Congregation M’vakshe Derekh in Scarsdale, New York. Rabbi Ben is the author of a series of childrens' books called The Enchanted Sukkah about a time travelling sukkah. In addition to being a writer and a rabbi, Ben is a singer-songwriter who delights in chanting, playing guitar, and using an Indian instrument called a sruti box. He also enjoys reading Jewish literature of all types, as well as science fiction (his favorite author is Philip K Dick), philosophy and beat poetry. Rabbi Ben lives by the shores of the Hudson River in Dobbs Ferry, NY and his greatest joy is being father to his daughter and his son.
