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.


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.

Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

Voice: Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi
Recorded in New York in 1990

This meditation is a journey through your horoscope from the Malkhut/Ascendent to the Keter/Neptune of the kabbalistic Tree of Life. Please memorise your chart, particularly the planets in signs and houses, and follow the instructions.

You will see how the sefirot are coloured by astrological influences in the anatomy of your psyche. While the pattern for this life was set at the moment of birth, the celestial configuration is always changing, giving rise to new situations and opportunities. This meditation invites you to review how your Fate is unfolding, what your Destiny might be and how you can be in service of the Divine.

Pilgrim’s Way
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

Pilgrim’s Way is an inner journey from all that is familiar into the Higher Worlds. On the way distinct levels are passed through that tell about the character of your mind, its memories and the state of your soul represented by the boat. You will also encounter your inner Teacher who takes you up to the Heavenly Jerusalem and the Holy Temple.

Path of Fate
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

Voice: Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi
Recorded in London in 2015
This meditation takes us to a distant land, the home from where we come from. Starting out at childhood, we look back at the long journey of our fate in this life. There were good and bad times, companions and lessons we had to learn. What do we yet have to learn and understand, on a short term and long term? And where is the Home that is our ultimate destination?

Four Worlds
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

This meditation describes the long journey from Nothingness to the appearance of human beings. Through the stages of radiance, gaseousness, liquidity and solidity emerges the physical universe. Earth becomes slowly habitable, and then a molecular body moves across the barrier from inorganic to organic; the planet’s level of consciousness is raised as more and more refined creatures evolve. Eventually into this scene of organic life appear the first humans who are conscious of being conscious.

Four Elements
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

Voice: Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi
Recorded in New York in 1988.
This meditation invites us to focus on our body. The four elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire that compose our body also relate to our senses, without which we could not recognise the physical world.

Ladder of Creation
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

Voice: Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi
Recorded in London in 1993

Ladder of Creation is a panoramic view of Existence from the lowest to the highest levels. The meditator is invited to observe and experience each stage and learn how to transform imagination into a vision. Halevi recommended this meditation to regain a sense of proportion when one becomes too bogged down with the mundane and personal.

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.

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.

Ship of the Soul
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

The symbolism of a ship can help us to gain insights into different aspects of our psyche. The condition of the ship is revealing. Is it seaworthy or in need of repair? Has the ship been designed for short or long journeys? Is it just for pleasure or also for work like carrying cargo? The sea tells about our psychological weather at the moment. Is it stormy or calm? Where is the ship coming from and where is it going?

Your Unconscious as Another Country
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

In this meditation we review our unconscious as another county. Our journey takes us through different terrains and landscapes which may symbolise various epochs in our life. The people whom we meet on the way represent the subpersonalities who live in this country and influence our life from afar. The destination of this journey is to visit the Wise One who resides there and to ask questions about matters that preoccupy us now.

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

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
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi
Read by Mohammed Nazam

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
Guided Meditation by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi
Read by Mohammed Nazam

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?

Transformation: Going through previous lives

London, 4 March 2014.
Voice: Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi 

What do you remember about your earliest incarnations maybe 10,000 years ago? How was your personal life in a hunter-gatherer family? Who were you in a tribal village, a man or a woman?
Remember various lives through the ages in a small market town, in a big city with temples and palaces, encountering different people and religions. When did you start looking for a teacher?
Who are you in this life? Become aware how Providence watches over you and all humanity in the Eternal Now.
