Introduction to Jewish Mysticism

Human beings appear to be “hard-wired” to be able to experience the interconnectedness of all creation. When we are graced with that kind of experience, we wish to describe it, share it, and re-enter that consciousness. Every culture develops metaphors and techniques that provide a pathway toward the experience of Oneness. Jewish mysticism is one of those roadmaps.

In this workshop we will explore the origins and central teachings of Kabbalah, the mystical realm of Jewish wisdom. We will especially focus on the Tree of Life, which is the central metaphor and map in Kabbalah for the inner life of God, the inner life of Creation, and the inner life of the human soul. We will explore and meditate on this Tree.
