Join one of the world's leading interpreters of Jewish mysticism in discovering why the words of the past reveal the path of our future.
Through wisdom gained from his own forty-year spiritual search for the Divine Presence within, Arthur Green challenges us to question the assumptions of modern consciousness, and by doing so open ourselves to learning from Kabbalah, a profound tool of human understanding. Drawing on the wisdom of the Zohar, the masterwork of the Jewish mystical tradition, and other kabbalistic texts, join Green in examining:
How is the kabbalistic tradition relevant to today's seeker?
Are the ancient and mysterious symbols of any value to us in our very different world?
How should Kabbalah be refitted so that it might serve as an appropriate vehicle for a contemporary spiritual quest?
Can this be done without destroying the soul of the tradition and while acknowledging today's reality?
