Evan uses his experience as a rabbi working with people of all ages who experience the highs and lows of life, combined with the most cutting edge research in positive psychology and neuroscience, to explore what practices help us feel a greater sense of satisfaction, meaning and purpose in our lives.

Evan speaks across the country to faith based groups and corporations wanting to improve strategies for understanding one another, facilitating increased productivity and harmony in the work place and in our social circles. He is a skilled retreat leader, “lunch and learn” speaker, and large group debate moderator. He is at home in sanctuaries, company board rooms and civic auditoriums.
