The Experience of Kabbalah
The heart and soul of spiritual learning at Kabbalah Experience is the method of its study. Teachers balance between thorough presentation of the curriculum and facilitating discussion with focus on growth for each student and for the class as a whole. Questions serve as a method of learning – engaging and challenging the mind to constantly consider shifts in perception.
Establishing a classroom atmosphere of trust and respect allows students and teachers to explore and share their experiences; their triumphs and challenges in the personal growth they are seeking. Over time, classes coalesce and evolve from “students who have come together to learn” into a supportive conscious community where students “learn with and from each other.” Classes are limited to 11 students and a teacher. We sit around a circular table. Classes are typically 75 minutes and each semester is 10 weeks (mini-classes are 75 minutes for 4-5 weeks).
Entry Study: Foundations of Kabbalah
Soul: Intro To Unseen Reality
The teachings of Kabbalah illuminate parallel realities between the physical and spiritual dimension. The history of Kabbalah and teachings from the Zohar and Kabbalistic masters of Tzfat open new awareness to the interconnectedness of souls and everyday miracles. Instructors: Dr. David Sanders
Space: The Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is the basic map of spiritual reality unique to the Kabbalah. It describes the process of the infinite becoming manifest as finite reality. Students learn to use the Tree of Life as a practical tool to understand the world and their lives. Instructors: Dr. David Sanders
Dreams and Kabbalah
“A dream not interpreted is like a letter not read.” This quote is not from Freud or Jung but from the Zohar, the classic medieval Kabbalah book highlighting the connection between dreams and our spiritual growth. We spend an average of 9 years dreaming. In what ways are dreams guides for our emotional and spiritual development? Come and see the significance of dreams. Those wishing to share their dreams are welcomed to do so. Instructor: Dr. David Sanders
Film Series: Black Lives Matter
This past year’s films and documentaries help expose the need for greater understanding of and beyond skin color. The Tribeca Black Lives Matter film syllabus was collated in 2015. We will challenge ourselves to examine closer the prejudicial masks we inherit and wear through watching films from this past including Hidden Figures, Moonlight, Fences, I am Not Your Negro, Lion, Loving, 2 Fists Up Instructor: Dr. David Sanders
Reincarnation in Kabbalah
We explore the philosophic, scientific and spiritual understandings of reincarnation and examine the specific Kabbalistic understanding of reincarnation for our spiritual awareness. One class will be dedicated to a group regression which allows those who want to participate to access prior life experiences. Instructor: Dr. David Sanders
The Songs of Leonard Cohen
His lyrics and melodies take us on a spiritual journey and resonate with the core teachings of Kabbalah. Homage to a man and his music with lessons to be learned from the cracks of light in the darkness the deeper one listens.
