This new course on Kabbalah, the most complete mystical tradition of the West, will combine theory (metaphysics) and practice (meditation & exercises) to come to the direct knowledge and experience of ourselves, the world, the universe and the Transcendent. The two key-diagrams of this lineage are the Tree of Life and Jacob’s Ladder, which will give us a structure and overview of the wisdom of Kabbalah. The Tree of Life works like a mirror for those who wish to look into it, reflecting our wholeness and potential.
There will be plenty of space for questions, interaction and reflection. The participant will receive hand-outs with the diagrams of the Tree of Life and Jacob’s Ladder during the course.
Together we create a safe and comfortable space for every person, and form what we call in Kabbalah: “A School of the Soul” in this three day course.
