Alan Morinis is an anthropologist, filmmaker, writer and student of spiritual traditions. For the past sixteen years the nearly-lost Jewish spiritual discipline of Mussar has been his passion, and he is now a leading interpreter of Mussar teachings and practices. Born and raised in a culturally Jewish but non-observant home, he studied anthropology at Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship, earning his doctorate at that university. Alan has written books and produced feature films, television dramas and documentaries and has taught at several universities and now regularly gives lectures and workshops in Mussar thought and practice. His journey to discover the Mussar teachings is recorded in the book Climbing Jacob’s Ladder (2002). His guide to Mussar practice, entitled Everyday Holiness: The Jewish Spiritual Path of Mussar, was published in 2007 and his Mussar handbook, Every Day, Holy Day, came out in 2010 . He is currently Dean of The Mussar Institute, which he founded in 2004 (www.mussarinstitute.org). The Mussar Institute offers courses and training in Mussar in dozens of cities to thousands of people annually.
