The purpose of a Mussar Vaad is to systematically work on specific middot.
In The Women's Mussar Vaad, Dina helps us to examine the middot that are especially relevant to women as we analyze them in the context of a woman's emotional, spiritual, and psychological makeup. There is, of course, a strong emphasis on practical applications as well.
Dina presents a weekly theme that we look for and apply daily while raising our conciousness and cognizance of its manifistations and its sources in our personalities.
The Vaad spends a number of weeks on every middah, developing a different aspect weekly, as we build towards a more complete understanding of the midah and its presence in our lives.
This deeper understanding of ourselves will allow us to reexamine our behavior and responses and make changes that will greatly impact us and those around us.
