Have you ever wondered, “What is Kabbalah?” and, “Why does it generate so much interest?”
Or perhaps you’ve wondered, “How does Jewish spirituality work?” and, “Can it help me navigate the challenges of everyday life?”
I’m getting together for our new course, The World of Kabbalah, to find the answers to those questions.
We’ll get a comprehensive overview of Kabbalah’s core teachings and see how these ideas offer powerful insights into everyday life, self-understanding, and personal growth.
We’re starting on January 15—would you join us?
Gain Literacy in Judaism's Mystical Tradition
Get to know Kabbalah's core ideas and terminology and why they continue to stimulate, fascinate, and inspire real life growth.
The Evolution of Ego
Examine the three spiritual worlds linking G-d's initial plan to our physical universe and how they correspond to human thought, speech, and action. Plus, see how this insight helps us sidestep rash decisions and implement habits for intentional living.
The Infinite Light
Observe how G-d's infinite light unites diverse sefirot and how we can replicate this phenomenon to overcome human differences and create harmonious relationships. Plus, see how willpower mirrors infinity and enables us to overcome obstacles.
The Dawn of Limitation
Probe the Divine realm of G-d's ten sefirot and the corresponding powers of the soul. Discover how knowledge of our soul's root can clarify individual purpose and provide guidance for maximizing strengths and managing weaknesses.
The World of Chaos
Study the primordial spiritual universe of Tohu, its purpose in creation, and its enduring impact on human nature. Discover the roots of inner moral conflict and the key to harnessing our negative natures to achieve fulfillment.
The Essence of Everything
Uncover the reality that precedes everything, the essence of the Divine Self, and the surprising purpose of our physical universe. Learn insights into the human self's deepest motivation and purpose and our capacity to repair wrongs.
The Great Concealment
