About Us

Kabbalah Experience was founded in 2006 by Dr. David Sanders, our Spiritual Director. In the years since Kabbalah Experience was founded, more than 3,000 global students have experienced the life-changing power of transformative kabbalah’s practical and empowering teachings.

“In Kabbalah, body and soul are tethered. Our task is not to untether them; it is to untangle them if and when they become knotted up. What are we untangling? Our over-identification with our physical bodies, feelings and thoughts, our affiliations, roles, identities and selves. All of these aspects are called clothing or masks. Spiritual maturity is found in altering our relationship with the “clothing” we inhabit and progressively being more comfortable in our own skin.”
