Wednesday, December 6, 8-9:30 PM - Live on Zoom
Join BeWell Miami’s upcoming webinar, in partnership with The Wellness Institute, titled The Spiritual Child, with best-selling author and psychologist Dr. Lisa Miller. With all the uncertainty and negativity in the world, giving children tools to support their mental well-being is more important than ever. Recent studies show that cultivating a child's spirituality is a key protective factor for their mental health.
Dr. Miller's groundbreaking research proves that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality are 40% less likely to abuse substances, and 60% less prone to teenage depression. Learn how and why developing a child's relationship with their innate spirituality strengthens their resilience and overall well-being.

WEBINAR: Thursday, November 2, 8-9:15 PM
Join Moving Traditions for an honest one-hour conversation about how parents and teens can keep talking about the war in Israel and Gaza even as we may find ourselves with very different sources of information, peer groups, and possible responses to the ongoing war.
Moving Traditions CEO Shuli Karkowsky will sit down with a panel of experts to talk about the psychology behind how teens process the news, strategies to foster discussion when you agree and when you don't, and how to set boundaries for discourse and root those boundaries in love. The panel will include: • Dr. Julie Hirschfeld, a psychologist and parent coach • Dr. Jonathan Golden, Director of Drew University’s Center on Religion, Culture & Conflict • Rabbi Daniel Brenner, Moving Traditions' VP of Education • Emily Levine, a Kol Koleinu Teen Feminist Fellow who attends Scarsdale High School in NY and Westchester Reform Temple

In the face of upheaval and uncertainty, we extend a heartfelt welcome to Israeli families who have recently found themselves displaced from their homes and now in Florida. We understand that embarking on a new chapter in a foreign land is a daunting prospect, and we are here to lend a helping hand.
Our mission is simple yet profound—to provide a warm and nurturing community for you and your loved ones as you try to find meaning and solace during these trying times. We understand that the journey of rebuilding is not just about physical relocation; it's about rediscovering hope, purpose, and a sense of belonging. We believe in the power of solidarity, and through our collective efforts, we strive to create a supportive environment that fosters resilience, hope, and connection.
