Hertford UK – Three Day Workshops

August 17th, 2012

An Introduction to Kabbalah
Three Day Workshops in Hertford (UK)

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 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.

Course outline:

Day One –
Saturday 27th October, 10am-4pm
The Way of Kabbalah
An introduction to Kabbalistic principles, the Tree of Life, Jacob’s Ladder and the esoteric origins of Judaeo-Christian Spirituality.

Day Two –
Saturday 24th November, 10am-4pm
Decoding the Bible
– A Kabbalistic Journey
How to approach scripture from an esoteric perspective, looking at how it can be used as a pathway to enlightenment without the overlay of religious dogma.

Day Three –
Saturday 23rd February, 10am-4pm
The Kabbalistic Universe
The inner world of Kabbalistic spirituality, the angelic realms, astrology and Karma, and the Work and Responsibilities of the Pilgrim’s Path.

Cost per day is £40 (£30 full time students) including a light lunch and other refreshments. A deposit (non-refundable) of £10 will be required to guarantee a place, and a maximum of 10 places will be available.

The course will be held in Hertford (UK) which is 50 minutes by train from London, Kings Cross and 5 minutes walk from Hertford North station.
Full address details on application.

September 28-30 2012 – Cuernavaca Mexico – Living Principles Workshop

July 16th, 2012

LIVING PRINCIPLES

Click here to view the Spainish Version of this announcement

The living principles of Kabbalah apply to nations, governments and business as well as to family, relationships and crises.
While the Tree of Life and Jacob’s ladder are clear and remarkable diagrams for studying life’s principles, they are primarily guides for interior growth, knowledge and development.
Using these principles to observe the symbolism of life experiences, enables us to internalize the Teaching and make it real.
During the two day workshop we will be using contemplation, guided imagery meditation and ritual to enable a deeper insight into the universal laws and how they work in daily life.

Saturday, September 29
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.
Session 2
An active meditation on the levels of the psyche
Session 3
A ritual based on the Great Invocation.
Session 4
Questions and commentaries

Sunday, September 30
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 contemplation of the psyche and on to glimpse the transpersonal nature of Beriah where the hand of heaven touches our lives.
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

Friday September 28th
SHABBAT
“And it was evening and it was morning, the sixth day.
And the heaven and the earth were finished and their entire host. And on the seventh day God had finished his work which He had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day and he hallowed it because He rested thereon from all His work which God had created and made.”

“Blessed are Thou o Lord our God, King of the Universe who has sanctified us by your commandments and commanded us to kindle the Sabbath light”

The Sabbath was a gift that changed the concept of time. Until Sinai time was measured in seasons and by natural phenomena. Now it became an entity measured by man, a weekly gift of freedom from everyday tasks, liberation from everyday preoccupations, and an opportunity to move to a higher spiritual plane.
*All over the world wherever there is a Jewish community the Shabbat is being celebrated … even the secular world has this gift of freedom … it is known as the weekend
This thread of traditional observance unifies us all in a worldwide invisible Temple in Time. Throughout the world we are ALL welcoming the Spiritual Sabbath Bride.

New Book – Harvest from the Tree of Life

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.
