Kabbalah is a term used for Jewish mystical tradition. It is a way of learning about one’s purpose in life and connecting to the divine. According to Kabbalah, everything within our world contains divine sparks imprisoned within the shells of matter. The goal of the study and practice of Kabbalah is to liberate these sparks in order to effect tikkun, or repair of the upper world, and hence of our own.
In this seven-week class, we will explore the overall place of kaballah in Jewish thought, review the major texts involved, and look at some key tenets of the tradition. This is a theoretical based class, where we will learn both the language of kaballah and the process of studying complex theory. This creates an opportunity to stretch the mind and grow in ways that accesses deeper soul potentials.
