Kabbalah for the Spiritual Pilgrim – Three Day Workshops in Hertford (UK)

Posted on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014 at 9:24 am topic - News.

Kabbalah is the mystical teaching that underlies the Judaeo-Christian tradition.  Derived from the Hebrew to receive, it is an ancient teaching that offers a pathway to personal growth and self-knowledge.

The course is intended as a practical introduction to the ideas of the Toledano Kabbalistic tradition.  It is aimed at those seeking a spiritual path, or simply interested in exploring their spirituality.  Through understanding our place in the universe, we might find greater purpose in our lives and, thereby, a greater sense of peace within ourselves and with the world around us.

The course is non-denominational and no previous knowledge is needed, only an open mind.  Each day will consist of a talk, discussion and a guided meditation aimed at illustrating and illuminating the theme.  There is no requirement to attend all three, but a working knowledge of Kabbalistic language and principles (covered on day one) will help in understanding the themes of days two and three.

The course tutor, Adam Simmonds, has been studying Kabbalah for over 20 years. A teacher by profession, he has presented talks on Kabbalah in both the UK and Spain and co-directs a regular Kabbalah group at his home in Hertford.
