Free Introductory Courses

Are you ready for a Transformative Experience? Join us for a free introductory class to Kabbalah.  

Each spiritual path is different. You want to walk more authentically through your days. Some benefit from new insight that unblocks them and calls them to change. Some find peace in the community of others seeking spiritual fellowship. Whatever the point of entry, there is meaning and direction to be found in the unseen realm. Kabbalah Experience opens that door and invites you to explore the physical and spiritual with a new eye. To study with us is to experience the world opening up to greater possibilities for yourself and humanity.

Soul: The study of Kabbalah enables us to discover what is hidden from our perception in plain sight. In this introduction to the basic teachings of the Kabbalah you learn to see beyond habituated and constricted thinking and become open to experiencing the connectivity of all of created reality—what is known in physics as Quantum Entanglement, in Depth Psychology as Synchronicity and in Kabbalah as Soul Connections. Free Introductory Course Available!

Time: When Are You?: The Kabbalah teaches us to find a balance between our memories of the past and living in the present and to plan for the future but not live in the future. "This hour and this moment in which you stand never existed before. Who knows what can be attained now?" Time is revisited as we work on a personal relationship with living in the present moment through the metaphors identified in Why Are You?

Subtle Awareness: The more Neuroscientists discover about the brain the more mysterious is the mind and consciousness. How does a self-become aware of it-self and how does one develop greater capacity for self-awareness?  The subtle mind, the capacity for consciousness that transcends the neurochemical pathways is represented in Kabbalah by the upper Sefirot of the Tree of Life, each with its different capacity for self-reflection. Revisiting our understanding of identity through masks, metaphors and beyond.

From Slavery to Freedom: I wonder to what I am enslaved, and what or whom is it my duty to set free? This quote from Michel Martin struck a chord for me as I contemplated what to teach this spring. Passover and the journey to freedom becomes a template for us to engage in severing the bonds of spiritual enslavement. The Zohar suggests that the slaves in Egypt had lost their ability to speak. Drawing from texts, film and television series we will explore the obstacles that we need to overcome to move from impeded speech to speaking our truths.

Shtisel Revealed:The long anticipated Season 3 comes to Netflix this spring and we will continue to discover through this Orthodox Jewish family the masks all of us wear regarding loyalty and risk taking, duplicity and authenticity and insularity and openness.

Kabbalah and Mussar: Counting the Omer.  A Jewish spiritual practice, beloved by the kabbalists, involved counting the days and weeks from the second day of Passover until the Feast of the First Fruits, Shavuot, seven weeks later.  Each night, as the stars come out, a blessing is recited, followed by literally naming that “today is day one of week one (or day three of week six) of the Omer.  Each of the seven days of each of the seven weeks correlates to one of the lower seven sephirot in the Tree of Life, inviting us to study and practice those qualities of  character, offering a spiritual curriculum that progressively leavens our matzah [unleavened bread], and hopefully uplifts our souls.

Both Kabbalah and Mussar are names of schools or philosophies within Jewish tradition, ones that have been enjoying a well-deserved resurgence of interest in our time.   Both highlight the practical wisdom of the Counting of the Omer, and invest it with added depth and power.  How so?  Come and find out.

Participants will benefit from prior study of kabbalah and the sephirot of the Tree of Life.  No previous experience in Mussar is required.  Those new to mussar are encouraged to read Everyday Holiness: The Path of Mussar, Alan Morinis’ accessible introduction.  Everyone will be asked to use a mussar journal for the class.

The Alphabet, The Psalms, and You: Sound and Symbol, Word and Melody, Awareness and Attunement

The languages and poetic arts of Western civilization can be traced to a common a source, the Hebrew alphabet. This series offers a deep dive into the mysteries of the 22-letter Hebrew alphabet, immersing us in the living waters of Kabbalah and the Tree of Life. Equipped with this new way of relating to the letters, we will [re]examine the historical psalms, play with the poetic art of crafting new ones, and experiment with sound and chant.

Prerequisites: NONE! This is NOT like any “language” class you’ve had before. Some prior knowledge of the Tree of Life, such as the KE Space class, will be helpful but not necessary. Bring a journal, a writing tool, and an open heart-mind.

More to do About NoThingness—Text based study on the Kabbalah of Ayin—Nothingness as seen from medieval to modern times. We will use paired study of Kabbalah texts prior to class and then delve into the text during class. While Ayin is an abstract concept the Kabbalists came to understand it as a meditative state to be entered into on our spiritual journeys.

Each student will be paired with a study partner (chevruta), you will preview texts together prior to class. This could be a 1/2 hour-hour of preview. You are invited to send David questions if you have them or bring them to our joint study.

The texts will all be in English (Hebrew or Aramaic text will be available as well).

Instructor: Dr. David Sanders
