While the tzadikim, or righteous souls, of history committed great acts of kindness, wisdom, and generosity during their lifetimes, their energy is available to support us in every aspect of our spiritual work as we continue to elevate the collective consciousness. Join us as we define what a tzadik is from the point of view of the Zohar, and elaborate on the role of righteous souls in our modern world, as well as throughout history. Students will explore stories and lessons from our lineage of master kabbalists and lesser known kabbalists from around the world, including, the Baal Shem Tov, Rav Elimelech of Lizhensk, Rav Zusha of Anipoli, Samuel the Prophet, and Rav Akivah among others. Gain a greater understanding of the tools and meditations needed to connect to righteous souls, as you journey closer to your unique purpose in this world.
Kabbalah 1 is a paradigm-shifting course that reveals the secrets of kabbalistic teachings, the golden rules you can master if you seek more fulfillment in your life. Kabbalah explains that there is the world that we see (the physical world) and a much larger realm, just as real, that is unseen (the spiritual world). We are souls from the spiritual world living in bodies of the physical world. The wisdom of Kabbalah explores both, explaining the spiritual laws of the universe in order to improve and enhance our life experience in this world.
On the 33rd day of the Omer, a positive, intelligent energy is transmitted throughout the universe. Rav Shimon bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, chose to leave this world on this day. He did so because it is a day on which, every year, a massive amount of Light is revealed throughout the cosmos that removes all darkness. By leaving the world on this day, Rav Shimon formed a bridge into the spiritual realm, fusing with and giving us access to that powerful Light. In the twelve years that Rav Shimon spent studying the Torah and revealing the Zohar in a cave, he completely transformed himself. He went through a spiritual process to remove all traces of the Desire to Receive for the Self Alone, and became a true being of sharing. On Lag Ba’Omer, we can connect to the soul of Rav Shimon, elevating our consciousness to a point that we can repair any separation from the Light. Through our connection, we can go back in time to negative events and correct our actions and intentions at the seed level. We can follow Rav Shimon’s example and use his assistance to transform ourselves, drawing infinite blessings while washing away selfishness and negativity.
Kabbalists view Shabbat (the Sabbath) not as a day of rest, but of intense spiritual work and connection. From sunset Friday evening through Saturday night, the kabbalists revealed a system of prayers, songs, meals and reading a portion of the Torah that provide us with the Light and nourishment that cleanses our ego and helps us to manifest our potential.
