Lesson Description

Eitan explains that during the negative month of Capricorn we are blessed with the period of Shovavim.  It is a period of time when the soul can truly restore itself by proactively facing the difficulties we try to keep buried and out of sight. This is our time to courageously go back and deal with the darkness of our past and retrieve the sparks of Light we mistakenly left behind by our desire to receive.  Now is the time to take stock to ensure we take conscious action, we are mindful of our words, and we appreciate our blessings to ensure that we reveal the most Light possible.
