David Varela was born in 1982 in Panama City. After he completed his undergraduate studies he became fascinated by quantum physics and finding the origins of the universe. During that time he worked in several industries, including finance, investment, and construction.
In 2008, David was introduced to Kabbalah through a friend. She recommended Rav Berg’s book, Nano, after an all night discussion about the ancient wisdom. Kabbalah intrigued him and offered another avenue to explore science and spirituality. Thus began his passion for Kabbalah.
One year later, he took his first Kabbalah class with teacher, David Benzaquen. Shortly after, he decided to leave his job as a project manager to pursue a position as an instructor. His studies took him to Los Angeles and Mexico where he soon began to work with students new to The Kabbalah Centre.
David feels that teaching allows him to connect to the highest Light of the Creator. To him, teaching and influencing the lives of his students is an honor. A practical and logical approach to kabbalistic concepts makes him popular with beginning students.
He hopes to impact the world for the better by continuing to share Kabbalah.
The Zohar teaches that every week of the year has its own unique energy that – when channeled through spiritual work – can assist us in every aspect of our life. As we grow and apply the power of each week’s energy to our life, we begin to experience a change in our consciousness, which in turn allows us to see the world through a much larger lens and generate major shifts in our lives. Everyday life looks a lot different when you’re tuned in to the big picture, as the change in perspective allows you to shed the trivial, overcome challenges and take control – week by week – of every facet of your life.
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.
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.
