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.

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.
