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.
