Online Workshops–Building Jacob’s Ladder–January 2021

‘It is like a ladder in the midst of his home whereby he may ascend and descend.’ Hekalot (mystical) text 6th Century

The workshops: held over three to four days in January 2021
Dates: 16th, 23rd, 30th/ 31st

The Tree of Life and the extended Tree, called Jacob’s Ladder, are models of the laws of existence, which can be observed within every living thing – especially within ourselves. They are our working tools in the Toledano Tradition.

It is recommended that every Kabbalist constructs their own Jacob’s Ladder and Tree of life as an expression of their conscious commitment to Self – knowledge.  When they have been completed and hung on our walls they may be used as an aid to meditation, contemplation, dialogue and reflection.

The ladder is painted on canvas using acrylic paint and, as such, it is a scroll which can be rolled-up to travel with us when needed. (Please see Materials list here.)

Postponement of the International Kabbalah Conference in The Netherlands

International Kabbalah Conference (English Spoken)

The Human Spirit

Regrettably, due to the global spread of the Coronavirus, we have decided to cancel the original date and postpone the International Kabbalah Conference in The Netherlands on 6th – 7th June 2020.

The new date is now set for 10th – 11th October 2020.

The original date (6th – 7th June) just seemed too close to the now set safety measures for group meetings and social distancing by the Dutch government which is now set on 1st June and there is no guarantee that this period will not be extended and we will have to cancel our meeting again.

To those who have already paid and cannot come in October, we will of course, on your wish, refund the money. We hope that already bought air tickets can be exchanged for a voucher which most airline companies seem to be offering.

It is a pity we will not be able to share our experience on short notice. We hope you all will understand, and we look forward to seeing you in October.

Note for Dutch participants: Instead of the 10th October, we will soon announce a new date for the National Exchange Day.
