The Content of the Course

This Kabbalah seminar will combine theory (metaphysics) and practice (meditation, ritual and exercises) to come to direct knowledge and experience of ourselves, the world, the universe and the Transcendent.

The two key-diagrams of Kabbalah are the Tree of Life and Jacob’s Ladder, which will provide a structure and overview of the wisdom of Kabbalah. You will learn about Kabbalah in a playful way, walking the Tree of Life, using traditional breathing exercises, connecting with the angelic and archangelic worlds, finding what fate and destiny mean in your life. Through this you will discover different levels of consciousness and how to integrate and make them whole within you.

This course is suitable to newcomers to Kabbalah and to those with some existing knowledge.

There will be plenty of space for questions, interaction and reflection. You will receive hand-outs with diagrams of the Tree of Life and Jacobs Ladder during the course.
