○ Level I: Foundation Classes   

SOUL

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.

SPACE

Space: A key to consciousness in Kabbalah is the Tree of Life, a visual map of how infinite and finite flow into and from each other. We enter places, form relationships and pursue projects often with little understanding of how they come about, their meaning and the relevance of seeing beyond what manifests. In this introduction to the Tree of Life we learn about and then practice incorporating this system of energy flow in all our interactions.

○ Level II: Inner Transformation

Who Are You?

Why Are You?: We return to the Tree of Life (Space) and focus on the “abstract” story level of our lives through engaging in metaphor work. The key to this inquiry is the realization that we are all living inside of the metaphors (stories) we have created or have been created for us with the practical implication of choosing, modifying or changing those stories.

Who Are You?

Who Are You?:  In this first semester of Inner Transformation you are challenged to strip away your previous understandings of who you are and explore the relationship between your outer selves, inner selves and your essence. The Kabbalah teachings are profound  in revealing the masks (ie. selves, identities, roles), you wear to ensure that you can answer the question: Are you wearing the mask or is the mask wearing you?

○ Level III & IV: Human Narrative

The Human Narrative

The Human Narrative: What are the presumptive stories that set human beings in a hierarchical relationship that is both separate and above?  In what ways has religion and our notions of God contributed to this narrative? To see how we participate in these stories it is necessary to penetrate the stories of our human culture that have led to religious fundamentalism, racism, sexism, slavery, class inequality, species dominance, overpopulation and polluting the planet.

Instructor: Dr. David Sanders

The Human Narrative

Human Narrative, A Radical Rethinking of God-and-World: While this may be considered an 'advanced' class on kabbalah, this class will be open and accessible to new students. We will be doing a deep dive into the 'story' of evolution, a modern tale of mythic proportions, and the creation stories from kabbalah -- offering  radically new (and old?) ways of understanding the place of humanity (and God) in our world.  The primary text will be a book by Art Green, Radical Judaism: Rethinking God and Tradition.

○ Special Courses

Mystical Hebrew Letters: The early Kabbalah focused on the Hebrew letters and language and how this code underlies creation. The beauty of the letters is expressed through their meaning, shape, name and numerical value. The Hebrew letters are containers for the energies of time, including the months of the year and the 12 Spiritual Senses of Soul explained in Sefer Yetzirah (The book of Formation).

Introduction to Chassidut - The Early Masters: In this introductory course we will engage in learning primary Chassidic teachings of the early Chassidic rebbes, from the conception of the movement. We will undertake close textual reading in attempt to understand the evolution of the Chassidic vocabulary and library. We will encounter the teachings of core voices in the Chassidic movement – the Chernobler (the Ma’or Ay’nayim) Rebbe, Reb Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev and Rebbe Nachman of Breslov – and observe the garmenting of the Chassidic spiritual soul and life. We will study a compilation of their teachings that reflect the essence of their teachings and the wisdom they have left for us to learn and live.

We will learn these primary teachings as they appear in their original sources. Together we will read, translate and discuss the depth of these teachings. Questions that touch upon the service of such sources in our personal life will be addressed.
