We had the great privilege of having Professor Danny Matt as a visiting scholar in Boulder this last weekend. Danny is one of the world’s foremost scholars of Kabbalah (Jewish Mysticism) and spent 18 years translating its greatest work, The Zohar – Book of Splendor, into English (the Pritzker edition.) Danny has written about a dozen other books on the subject and is a wonderful, engaging and inspiring teacher. I had the honor to spend some time with him and to record this conversation, giving us a taste of Kabbalah, gently opening up the supernal world of Jewish mysticism. If you want more, you can join Danny’s online Zohar class.
In this week of Purim with its paradoxes that reflect the world’s confusing dance between light and dark, good and evil, life and death, the sun and the moon, enjoy this transcendent glimpse into a world beyond duality.
