What is creativity? How and why is it cultivated? Tapping traditional and contemporary textual sources and Human resources, we will study and experiment with practices designed to access our untapped creative potential. This is a deep dive into the Sefirah of Binah. No prior experience in Kabbalah or sense of yourself as an artist is necessary. The series will feature guest artists, poets, and song-writers.

“And He took him outside and said, ‘Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.’ And He said to him, ‘So shall your descendants be.’” (Genesis 15:5). For generations, people have looked to the night sky for answers. Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? Entire mythological narratives have blossomed from the rise and fall of the Sun, the waxing and the waning of the Moon, and the shapes of the constellations. Jewish traditions are no exception.

Course Schedule:

Tuesdays 9/13 -12/13  10am-11:15am MT/ 12-1:15pm ET (Class will not be held Sept 27, Oct 11 and 18)

Through your study of Mussar you identify and refine your character traits. While Mussar has its own language and integrity, it has many parallels teachings to Kabbalah. If you have never heard of Mussar here is your opportunity to learn its practical wisdom from a master teacher.
