Event description

Description

For generations, the ancient Hebrew mystical tradition of Kabbalah has provided spiritual seekers a unique technology to access our inherent ability to transform ourselves and our world. Though Kabbalah has been recently popularized by outlets like The Kabbalah Centre in New York City, it possesses a rich history, a wide corpus of literature, and many modern applications as a way of viewing human life.

In this 5-class introductory seminar, Rabbi Ben Newman will provide a basic introduction to some of the history, ideas, texts, and practices of this ancient wisdom, followed by open discussion. These classes are appropriate for everyone, regardless of background, beliefs, or lifestyle. It is an all-inclusive environment where everyone is welcome.

Each class may be taken individually.

Cost to attend is $12 per class, or $50 for all five classes.

To register for one class, select the date of the class, click on the "Tickets" button, and enter the amount of $12.

To register for all five classes, go to any class date, click on the "Tickets" button, and enter the amount of $50.
