The Kabbalah is not a logical system that can be mastered by the reasoning mind.

It is a body of wisdom that teaches deep truths that are embedded in the fabric of creation. These truths may at times be contradictory but that does not matter. Their goal is not to create a cohesive philosophical system but to put you in touch with profound relationships and realities that form the underlying truth of our universe and existence.

In this series of webinars, you will study some of the great ideas of Jewish mysticism and explore how you can implement their teaching in your life.

Each session will combine teaching of key mystical principles with textual study and instruction in a variety of spiritual practices and exercises that have been designed to help you apply these ideas to your day-to- day existence.

There will also be spiritual journaling and personal practices, such as meditation, self-examination and daily activities, for you to follow during each week of the series.

Audio and video recordings will be available for anyone who misses a session.

Registration must be completed by the Friday before the session.

The webinars will be divided into five series.

The first series, Cosmic Shattering and Repair, will look at the Ari’s (Rabbi Isaac Luria) concepts of the shattering of the vessels and the raising of the sparks and delve into how they affect our conception of reality and the view we have of our place in this world.

The second series, Building Blocks of Reality, will focus on the role of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life in defining the structure of our universe and our lives.

The third series, We are all on a Journey of Discovery and Liberation, will explore the evolution and journey of the soul and the tools that we need to reach our goal.

The fourth series, Everything is Interconnected – Everything is One, will investigate the structure of the spiritual realm as a living organism that reflects the oneness of all being and provides a model for our personal and global reality.

The fifth series, Heaven and Earth, will explore how we build a bridge between the higher worlds and this physical plane of existence, beginning with our own lives and expanding out to encompass the whole world.

Session 5 – February 26, 2017
