New Book – Harvest from the Tree of Life

Posted Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Harvest from the Tree of Life
A richly illustrated book of 219 pages with 16 essays and 20 short reflections written by students of the kabbalist, writer and teacher Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi, honouring his many years of teaching in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Halevi says about ‘Harvest from the Tree of Life’: ‘the book contains articulate articles that show how deeply kabbalah has been integrated in the author’s lives. The varied topics open up the field of kabbalistic work and study’.

The book includes short reflections on a principle inspired by Halevi’s work and longer essays that, besides the classical kabbalistic topics, show how kabbalah can be applied to biology, psychology, literature, biblical study and philosophy.

The varied material offers a wide panorama of kabbalistic areas of interest and points to the depth that is to be found in kabbalah.

This book will offer interested students many sources of inspiration.

Illustration by Z'ev ben Shimon Halevi

The principles of the four levels within existence, physical, psychological, spiritual and divine are clearly and elegantly laid out in the diagram of the kabbalistic tree of life and Jacob’s ladder.

Internalising the tree of life is the work of the kabbalist so that life experiences are related to our soul’s development. A willingness to tread the path of honesty between ‘my will’ and ‘thy will’ leads to a conscious understanding of personal fate
and destiny.

Using imagery, meditation and ritual will enable a deeper insight into the universal principles and how to they work in everyday life.

Course outline
English with translation to Portuguese

Saturday March 17th
Session 1
We shall begin with an illustrated talk on the principles of the Tree of Life in
relation to a lifetime from birth to death, and the reality of fate and destiny.
Session 2
An active meditation on the different aspects of the psyche and the emotional and
intellectual complexes.
Session 3
A ritual based on the Great Invocation.
Session 4
Discussion and questions.

Sunday March 18th
Session 1
An illustrated session in which we look deeper into the psyche and consider the influence of conditioning, the collective unconscious and the universal law of “what you sow you reap”.
Session 2
A guided imagery meditation taking us from the density of physicality to a contemplation of the psyche and on to glimpse the transpersonal nature of Beriah where the hand of heaven touches our lives. The presence of the Holy One pervades all existence.
Session 3
In this exercise of walking the Tree we seek to better understand the importance of individuation which leads to self knowledge.
Session 4
Discussion and questions.
