Workshop Description
A workshop on our Body and our Heart, their relationship to the Tree of Life and the psyche (the Yetziratic Tree). Physical exercises and meditations will be practised to investigate the body and its relationship to the Four Elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire. As we work with the Way of Action and unify these Four Elements more within us we can deepen our experience of the Four Worlds and hence receive more the influx of the upper worlds.

We will also study the Tree of Compassion and work on our experience of Energy and Structure, its connection to the Way of Devotion, the development of Compassion and their relationship to the Tree of Life. Different exercises and meditations will be used to research this path developing the experience of the flow of grace from above and how it comes out in the world.
With the integration of theses two aspects we have a support and a guide as to how we use our Body and our Heart in our life and the paths we take.

For whom
This workshop is addressed to anyone that is interested in studying or developing knowledge on Kabbalah, being the only pre-requisite to have a genuine interest on this subject, regardless of the person’s philosophy, beliefs, religion (or its absence), gender, race or social status. 

Andy Henry
The workshop will be with Andy Henry, who has been teaching Kabbalah since 2005. He has studied Kabbalah with Z’ev Ben Shimon Halevi and other teachers since 1995. He is a well established teacher and healer in the Eastern Traditions, running healing clinics and teaching groups in England, Spain and Portugal since 1990.   

Toledano Tradition
This line of Kabbalah follows the Tradition of Toledo School, that has its roots on medieval Spain where Judaism, Christianism and Islamism met in a civilized and cosmopolitan atmosphere, in this environment took place an esoteric fusion between religion and philosophy. The hallmark of the Toledano lineage is Jacob’s Ladder, a metaphysical scheme of the Four Worlds originated from the Kabbalístic Tree of Life. This diagram is the key to understand Existence, and our role in it

Alexander Pope’s Essay on Man – London – December 8th 2019

December 8th 2019

Alexander Pope’s Essay on Man:
An Unacknowledged Esoteric Masterpiece

All our Knowledge is, Ourselves to Know’.

Pope’s Essay on Man (1733-4) was perhaps the most influential poem of its time, drawing praise from Voltaire, Rousseau, Kant and Hume. However, in our own age it has been repeatedly denigrated by academics although Pope himself regarded the Essay as central to his achievement. Lacking a metaphysical – let alone an esoteric – perspective, the modern materialistic mind spectacularly misses the point of this wonderful elaboration of ‘the Nature and State of Man, with respect to the Universe’.

When it is understood that the poem emerges from an implied dialogue with Pope’s great friend St. John Bolingbroke as they contemplate the poet’s symbolical garden in Twickenham, we can begin to appreciate the profound implications of a work whose raison d’être is to demonstrate the order, balance and love that underpin creation, despite any and all appearances to the contrary.

Peter Brennan was for many years Head of English at The Latymer School, Edmonton, and now teaches freelance for City Lit, the Quakers and other organisations, having compiled over 60 courses, ranging from Chaucer and Shakespeare to Frank O’Hara and Bob Dylan. He has always been concerned to explore the esoteric implications of literature and particularly enjoys working with those seeking self development. Peter has studied Kabbalah in Warren Kenton’s school since 1998 and has begun work on a spiritual history of English poetry.

KABBALAH, RUMI AND HATHOR’S ALCHEMICAL ART – London – November 3rd 2019

KABBALAH, RUMI AND HATHOR’S ALCHEMICAL ART
By Alison Roberts

When teaching how to accomplish spiritual unification, Jalaluddin Rumi advises ‘Try alchemy. Change copper into gold’ (Masnavi 1 3894). Surprisingly, he refers here, not to the Sulphur–Mercury theory of metals, which is generally understood to be the basis of alchemy, but to transforming copper, the metal of the love goddess Venus—or Hathor in her Egyptian guise. Indeed, in Book 2 of the Masnavi, Rumi hints at his alchemical lineage, in a long section devoted to Dhu’l Nun al-Misri, the ninth century Egyptian Sufi and alchemist from Akhmim/Panopolis, whom Sufis revere as the transmitter of the Egyptian secrets. What is little known, however, is Akhmim’s long tradition of transforming copper into gold, going back to Hellenistic alchemists, and ultimately to Hathor’s temples. This Egyptian alchemy of love also flowed into the West when Kabbalah was emerging, and the talk explores its affinity with the Tree of Life’s lower and upper faces.

Alison Roberts studied ancient Egyptian and Akkadian at Oxford University where she received her doctorate in 1984. This talk is based on her recent book Hathor’s Alchemy: The Ancient Egyptian Roots of the Hermetic Art (2019).

Kabbalah and Vision – October 20th 2019 – London

Posted Tuesday, September 10th, 2019

Sunday 20th October
A workshop on the experience of our vision externally and internally. Firstly exercises will be taught to help understand how the perception of our environment is intimately entwined with our Fate (the condition we came into this world with). Then guided internal meditations help us to develop our internal vision bringing us more into contact with the upper worlds. With practise we can stabilise these experiences gradually harmonising both the internal and external vision. This in turn can help develop our vision of our potential Destiny.

Teacher : The workshops will be with Andy Henry, who has been teaching Kabbalah since 2005. He has studied Kabbalah with Z’ev Ben Shimon Halevi and other teachers since 1995. He is a well established teacher and healer in the Eastern Traditions, running healing clinics and teaching groups in England, Spain and Portugal since 1990.

Kabbalah Annual Summer School – August 27-30th – Hawkwood

Posted Thursday, June 6th, 2019

KABBALAH – Annual Summer School
August 27 @ 4:00 pm – August 30 @ 1:00 pm

The annual Kabbalah summer school is an opportunity to gather in the peaceful surroundings of Hawkwood, to create a space for interior work, away from the demands of everyday life.
Printable Flyer

Kabbalah, meaning ‘receive,’ is a living tradition, ancient in origin yet contemporary in meaning and thanks to the devotion of our teacher, Warren Kenton (Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi), has been reformulated for our era and recorded in 14 books. His teaching, over fifty years, is the foundation from which we pass on the knowledge. Whether applied to one’s own life journey or to world events and history, the teachings bring insights and perspectives that are far beyond the ordinary; yet eminently relevant to every aspect of life, work and relationships.

The Kabbalistic Tree of Life and its extended form, Jacob’s Ladder, are our working tools to guide us into an understanding of the Four Worlds – physical, psychological, spiritual and divine. Starting with a deeper look into the interconnected world of nature, we continue our journey to the psyche and soul and on into the trans personal world of the spirit. The light of consciousness shines throughout existence – an eternal presence within each of us.

The four days incorporate illustrated talks, guided meditations and time in nature, designed to bring the principles of the tradition to life through action, contemplation and devotion.
Afternoon breaks allow time for solitude, conversation, local visits and forest walks. Here, enduring friendships are forged between people from many lands. This is a characteristic of the Kabbalah Society’s School of the Soul.

Breakfast – 8.30 am
Session 1: 9.30 am – 11.00 am

JAPAN’S SACRED LADDER

Kabbalah, meaning ‘receive’ is about life – its source, purpose and divine plan. As a living tradition, in its classical and contemporary form, it is relevant to every nation and culture, providing a path to Self knowledge.
The perennial principles expressed in the diagrams of the Tree of Life and Jacob’s Ladder define four levels within existence – physical, psychological, spiritual and divine. During the two weekend workshops we shall observe these principles at work in ourselves, in our lives and collectively in schools of the soul.

Kurt Browne and Joanna Lapage-Browne
Kurt and Joanna have studied and worked in the Toledano Tradition School of the Soul, founded by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi (Warren Kenton), since the early 1970’s. Kurt is originally from Trinidad in the Caribbean and Joanna was brought up in Northern Nigeria and then returned there to work. They live and work in London and have a son, two daughters and five grandchildren.
