Lesson Description

The day of Tisha b'Av is known to be the most negative day of the year, but also the birth of the messiah. Join Michael as he reveals how we can maintain our certainty in the darkest of moments that the greatest Light is also being revealed.

About This Course

The Ninth of Av is the one day of the year when the negative force kabbalists call the Opponent rules for an entire 24 hour period. The Opponent is not a demon or devil, but a negative force of consciousness whose sole nature is receiving, chaos and selfishness. Many chaotic events have occurred on this day throughout history, but through prayer, reading the biblical scroll of Lamentations and additional kabbalistic tools, we can uproot this force of negativity and transform it to positivity.
