If you’re like many on a spiritual path, you’ve been feeling called recently to stand up in the face of rising challenges to the future of our planet.
It’s a time when our culture’s brokenness, separation and polarization, has become strikingly more evident (and painful to witness).
How can we each become an evolutionary change agent and healer in these times?
We need great courage to take action in the name of justice... and an equally powerful love that enables us to heal divides and mend hearts.
We need a spiritual path that bridges the internal world of wisdom and resolve with the external world of inspired action.
That’s a reason why Kabbalah has recently surged in popularity, even outside of Jewish circles.
Kabbalah offers a uniquely integrated, holistic approach to spiritual development — one that can both deepen your understanding of metaphysical truth and help you navigate a challenging conversation about politics.
It is both transcendent and grounded, offering a sacred recipe for creating a harmonious life. .. that also helps repair the world.
Kabbalah calls us to righteous action that is sourced in the full integrity of our being, in alignment with the Divine. It shows us how to do so through a unique map called the Tree of Life that depicts 10 “spheres” or Sephirot that map onto both our bodies and the Cosmos and help us unlock the deeper wisdom of the universe.
For example, by opening our hearts fully through the gifts of Tiferet — the centermost Sephirot in the Tree of Life — we develop the courage to speak our truth, heal societal wounds and transform oppression in all its forms.
The Kabbalist sees this as part of Tikkun Olam — the repair of the world.
As you do the mystical work of dynamically balancing your inner energies, you discover a deeper relationship with the Divine and become a holy vessel that attracts, magnifies and focuses the light of the Divine.
In this soulful hour with Rabbi David Ingber, one of the most exciting modern teachers of Kabbalah, you’ll receive foundational insights that bring alive the “Tree of Life” — the symbolic map at the core of Kabbalah.
