School of the Soul
Toledo Spain
March 5-6 2011
By Ze’v ben Shimon Halevi

Saturday 5th – Sunday 6th March 2011

This weekend course is about the search for esoteric knowledge and schools of the soul. The kabbalistic scheme of four Worlds called Jacob’s Ladder is used as a framework to see how schools operate. The role of the teacher is considered, along with examples of various schools and their students. Different levels of the esoteric Work are then examined. These psychological and spiritual processes are preparation for entering the seven lower Halls of Paradise and the seven upper Halls of Heaven. Insights into these higher realities can occur during a guided meditation exercise. In this interior Temple School we may meet our spiritual teacher and be taken up into the Divine Realm. The lectures are illustrated with slides and at the end of each session there will be time for questions and observations.

Saturday 5th March
10.00 – 11.15
We begin with the Garden of Eden and the knowledge of how to return to it. Then comes the misuse of such knowledge, the first master teachers and the various esoteric lines that follow the same universal teaching in schools of the soul.
11.45 – 13.00
Here we see the Tree of Life in different traditions and the origin of the kabbalistic Tree in the Jewish version. The mythology and metaphysics of the Bible are set out in the classical diagram of the Tree mandala.
14.15 – 15.30
This session is about the search for mystical knowledge and a reliable teacher, followed by the three ways of Action, Devotion and Contemplation, leading to the path of development and ascent into the Higher Worlds.
16.00 – 17.15
Here the origin of Existence is set out, followed by an account of Creation and the lower Worlds of Formation and Action and their inhabitants. This chain is seen in the Jacob’s Ladder of the universe and the microcosm of a human being, which is a reflection of the macrocosm.

Sunday 6th March
10.00 – 11.15
In this session the inner work needed to evolve is discussed as well as the dangers to be encountered. The disciplines required are illustrated before catching a glimpse of Hell, Paradise and Heaven, prior to entering the Divine Realm.
11.45 – 13.00
The structure of the psyche is now examined and the levels of humanity viewed, before seeing how a school of the soul is organised. This is in preparation for the next session, which is an imaginary journey to a Temple School.
14.15 – 15.30
In this interior exercise we spend time in assessing our situation before meeting our inner teacher, who takes us up into the Hall of the Spirit and beyond into a holy place. There we may ask three questions, before returning back to the everyday world.
16.00 – 17.00
This session is entirely devoted to observations and questions.
