  • The Promise and the Problem of our Words:
    The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned Since High School

    How very many words we use, but are our words descriptive or creative? Are the words we use a response to our world, or is the world a response to our words? And why does it matter? Rabbi Ted explores the confusingly powerful nature of our words.

Spiritual guide, author, teacher and therapist

Rabbi Ted Falcon, PhD, chosen as one of the Jewish Daily Forward's Most Inspiring Rabbis of 2014, has been a student and teacher of Jewish meditation and Kabbalah for over forty years. With gentleness and humor, he offers unique insight into spirituality while deeply affirming the integrity of each individual being.
As part of the Interfaith Amigos, Rabbi Ted explores the frontiers of interfaith spirituality. Karen Armstrong calls their "exuberant and courageous" second book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith, "an inspiration and example for all of us in these sadly polarized times."

We use words to describe the nature of our experience. But words are not simply our responses to our world; our words define our world, and our reality obediently demonstrates their accuracy. Do our words tend to freeze the constant flow of shift and change? Are our words keeping our reality the way it is? And what happens when we take responsibility for our own consciousness, and turn it toward that which we want?
