The Four Journeys of the Soul

Koenji – Tokyo

Kabbalah is a living tradition of universal principles, in its classical and contemporary form it is relevant to every nation and culture. The teaching is expressed in the diagrams of the Tree of Life and Jacob’s Ladder which contain the four levels within existence; physical, psychological, spiritual and divine.

The first journey of the soul begins in innocence in paradise with the descent into a human body in order to gain experience. The second journey of growth and individuation takes many lives to realize. The third journey is the return to teach and pass on what has been learned and the fourth journey is the return ‘home’ to union with the Absolute.

During the two days we shall examine the four journeys to make them relevant to our lives.

Sunday November 23rd and Monday 24th 2014

Moses and Exodus

Mitaka – Tokyo

The biblical story of Exodus, when understood allegorically, is an account of the soul’s journey from the limitations of the ego, constrained by instincts and conditioning, to the individuality of the Self and a vision of the transpersonal world.

It describes the interior stages of resistance, conflict, discipline and breakthrough together with the workings of providence and timing along the way.

During the two days we shall look at the archetypal story of Moses, his humanity, struggles and relationship with God, and the instructions he was given on the building of the inner temple and it’s relevance to our lives.
