Daniel Matt Wisdom of the Kabbalah: Ancient Teachings and Contemporary Spirituality

No drop-ins. $85 General Public, $65 Members of CHL In this three-session course, explore how Kabbalah reimagines transcendence as Divine presence and how it can enrich our lives. Aspects to be covered include: Ein Sof (as Infinity), Ayin (as mystical Nothingness), Shekhinah (as the feminine half of God), the mystical meaning of Torah, and “raising the sparks” (discovering Divine presence in the material world). The class will use texts of Kabbalah translated by Daniel Matt, including selections from the Zohar, the masterpiece of Kabbalah. Daniel Matt is one of the world’s leading authorities on Kabbalah and the Zohar. He taught at the Graduate Theological Union for twenty years. He has published over a dozen books, including The Essential Kabbalah (translated into seven languages) and God and the Big Bang: Discovering Harmony between Science and Spirituality. Recently Daniel completed an 18-year project of translating and annotating the Zohar, the masterpiece of Jewish mysticism. This work, consisting of nine volumes was published by Stanford University Press and is entitled The Zohar: Pritzker Edition.

THE ART OF MUSSAR: A Study & Practice Group Blending Mussar and Expressive Arts

Tuesdays, March 19, April 2, 16, 30 - 7:15pm - 8:45pm Location: Chochmat HaLev The study and practice of Mussar offers a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation. Its focus on tikkun middot, the refinement of character, enables us to ground our spiritual aspirations and live a life of joy and personal integrity. Tikkun middot is a practice shared by both Jewish mystics and mussar masters alike. It involves deepening self-awareness (cheshbon ha’nefesh), building spiritual muscle in the areas where we are challenged and mastering reactive, habitual patterns. The group, led by Estelle Frankel with occasional guest artists will blend text study with guided meditation, journaling, poetry and expressive arts. The curriculum for the 4-sessions will draw upon the following middot: humility, courage, faith/trust, equanimity, patience/perseverance, compassion, generosity, honesty. Register here

THE ART OF MUSSAR: A Study & Practice Group Blending Mussar and Expressive Arts

Tuesdays, March 19, April 2, 16, 30 - 7:15pm - 8:45pm Location: Chochmat HaLev The study and practice of Mussar offers a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation. Its focus on tikkun middot, the refinement of character, enables us to ground our spiritual aspirations and live a life of joy and personal integrity. Tikkun middot is a practice shared by both Jewish mystics and mussar masters alike. It involves deepening self-awareness (cheshbon ha’nefesh), building spiritual muscle in the areas where we are challenged and mastering reactive, habitual patterns. The group, led by Estelle Frankel with occasional guest artists will blend text study with guided meditation, journaling, poetry and expressive arts. The curriculum for the 4-sessions will draw upon the following middot: humility, courage, faith/trust, equanimity, patience/perseverance, compassion, generosity, honesty. Register here
