Audio

The Kabbalah Society is currently curating archival audio files as part of preserving Halevi’s legacy. The audio files contain meditations he conducted in group settings, as well as talks and discussions in his workshops and study groups.

The Ways of Contemplation, Action, Devotion

According to the tradition, the spiritual work can be practised in three different ways, relating to the three basic modes of thinking, action and feeling.

The way of contemplation can include reading books, watching videos on the Teaching or exchanging ideas in group work. In this way of working, the kabbalist takes a concept and considers it from every angle to gain a deeper and wider insight into Existence.

The way of action follows the intentional and conscious performing of rituals where the body and mind align to experience the Higher Worlds. The rituals can be practised in solitude or collectively, and they can be religious, traditional or freshly created.

The way of devotion is very much an interior practice, the way of the heart where the participant can retreat into meditation or prayer. The aim is to shift levels from the mundane through the innermost aspects of the psyche and the spirit  and enter into the radiant presence of the Divine.

Meditations

Halevi’s guided imagery meditations use the language of symbolism to give us insights into the deeper levels of our psyche and into the Higher Worlds.

Journey to the Temple School
Guided meditation by Zev ben Shimon Halevi.

Journey to the Temple School is a visit to a school of the soul in the upper realm. After an assessment of your life, your personal Teacher takes you up into the Hall of the Spirit where important and relevant questions may be answered.The dream segmants are to allow the unconscious to communicate without the impediment of a tight structure.

Exodus
Guided meditation by Zev ben Shimon Halevi.

The festival of liberation, the Passover or Pesach is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the Israelites’ exodus from slavery in Egypt, but beyond that it is a universal allegory of the human condition and development. It is the journey which starts with the body descending into bondage in Egypt. Then, through the hardship of  psychological purification of the soul, the slave mentalities are left behind. The integrated individual that develops through this tough crossing of the Desert is then ready to enter into the spiritual Land Flowing with Milk and Honey. The Haggadah (the Jewish textbook for Pesach) emphasises to not only retelling the Passover story but in every generation people must feel as they personally came out of Egypt as it is said “You shall tell your child on that day it is because of what the Lord did for me when I went out of Egypt”. 
This meditation invites the participant to follow on the biblical story and to reflect where they are on their journey.

House of the Psyche
Guided meditation by Zev ben Shimon Halevi.

The House of the Psyche is a symbolic image of the mind. Each area reveals the present state of the function and the level it represents. The basement represents the body, the garden vitality, and the pet – one’s own instinctive soul, while the hall and the surrounding rooms represent the ordinary mind. The upper floors are aspects of the unconscious soul and spirit. Take note of their states. It can be very informative.

Guided Meditations by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi – Read by Mohammed Nazam.

Time
In this meditation, originally held 10/03/2014, we can gain a panoramic view of place and time. From the here to galaxy’s space, from the now, looking back tens of thousands of year as well as looking into the distant future. By going on this journey, we can experience the difference between the Passing Show with its ever-changing form and substance and the presence, the Eternal Now where the guiding Watcher is observing.

Eternal Now
This meditation, that Halevi originally led 02/06/2014, takes us back to our significant memories imprinted on our consciousness for a lifetime. These memories can range from the time of our arrival to the Earth to the near-present. These conscious memories in the past and when we are looking at them in the now, might provide greater insights into our lives, the cosmic processes and into the Eternal Now.

Changing Forms
This meditation recorded first on 01/04/2013, takes us on a journey to observe how the most minute and vast parts of existence change forms.  All, be it molecules, fashion, weather, animals, humans or galaxies get born, grow, flower, wither, die and reorganise into new material. Yet, who sees it all in the Eternal Now and where are we humans in this vast process?
