Maimonides Take On Health Guidebook & Seminar

Background:

Maimonides (Rambam in Hebrew) was a scientist, doctor, researcher, spiritual leader and one of the greatest, most thoughtful philosophers and intellectuals ever to arise for the Jewish people. His work stands in line with the great works of the Greek philosopher Aristotle.

After being exiled from Spain, to Israel and then to Egypt and losing his brother, he became a well known doctor. Maimonides was the first doctor to have a holistic approach, who believed that a healthy mind and a healthy body is the secret for good life and longevity. His method’s primary health goal is to give the body optimal conditions, based on a combination of eating in moderation, living an active lifestyle and balancing mental health.

Maimonides' great work, written 800 years ago, not only fits our life today but it might be the answer we've been waiting for; to live a more healthy and happy life mentally, emotionally and physically.

Seminar Overview:
This is an in-person seminar where we dive into Maimonides’ teachings together as a community and learn how to implement his health guidelines into our daily life.
It’s an eye-opening experience for many of us who have heard about Maimonides, yet don’t fully know how his medical work can improve their health with simple steps.

This seminar is not only a chance to learn about Maimonides but it is also a wonderful journey to better our health through alignment with the greatest jewish doctor and leader. It’s a powerful way to connect to Judaism from a fresh perspective.

“It is natural for a man's character and actions to be influenced by his friends and associates and for him to follow the local norms of behavior. Therefore, he should associate with the righteous and be constantly in the company of the wise, so as to learn from their deeds.”
- Mishneh Torah, Sefer Hamada, chapter 6

 

Why:
Bringing this seminar to your organization and your community embodies Maimonides’ teachings who believed in the importance of being in good company for our mental well-being.

In Pirkei Avot 1:6, Maimonides talks about three types of friendships, when at the highest level
are friendships who come together for a common ideal.


This is our chance to come together and create a high level friendship to learn Maimonides’ great work and teachings for a healthy life for ourselves and families.

“We were able to ask questions along the way and always opened with questions from the lesson the week before. So it seems we were able to get clarity easily.

Remi is so full of life and enthusiasm for the topic. It was presented in a thoughtful, well thoroughly out format. It energized me to work on certain aspects of my healthy living!”

“Not having studied in this area before and being a lover of history, I found all of the material regarding Maimonedis’ life and teachings very interesting. Remi did a great job. Remi’s so accepting and appreciative of all questions with her bubbly personality. The slides were very good and informative. I liked the small group, because it helped keep me engaged. I would recommend this class to everyone.”
