CHAIRMAN, THE KABBALAH CENTRE

Michael Berg is an author, scholar, and spiritual leader. Through his lectures, books, and blog, Michael seeks to inspire students to develop a personal and growing connection to the Light of the Creator. Ultimately, the purpose of his work is to teach people how they can transform and achieve true and lasting fulfillment.

As the son of kabbalists Rav and Karen Berg, Michael immersed himself in the wisdom of Kabbalah from a young age, waking up almost every night at midnight from the age of 14 on to study the teachings with his father. In addition to being a native English and Hebrew speaker, Michael is an expert in ancient Aramaic and, as such, a true kabbalistic scholar, having achieved the milestone of editing and translating the first ever unabridged 23 volume set of the English Zohar, the ancient Aramaic text that is at the very core of kabbalistic thought.

Michael lectures worldwide and is a best-selling author who has developed a global following with books Becoming Like God, Well of Life, The Secret, and The Way. His most recent work includes the translation and editing of central kabbalistic texts The Wisdom of Truth, And You Shall Choose Life, and On World Peace - all by Rav Ashlag, founder of The Kabbalah Centre. Michael’s recent release, Secrets of the Bible, offers a way to understand the nature of this world and our purpose in it through the hidden teachings in the Bible. His almost 20 books have been translated across the world into 10 languages.

In 2007, Michael created the Zohar Project, a grassroots volunteer movement dedicated to bringing the power of the Zohar to every corner of the world. Since then, Zohar Project volunteers have helped to disseminate hundreds of thousands of Zohars to people from all walks of life in all areas of the world that are in need. He also created, and is the Director of, Kabbalah.com, the online learning platform of the Kabbalah Centre, which offers lessons in kabbalistic wisdom to anyone who wants to learn.

Michael brings a great deal of joy to the teachings of Kabbalah, delivering weekly insights that are read by over 100,000 people each month, and weekly classes that are watched by thousands on Kabbalah.com. Michael currently lives in New York with his wife Monica and their four children David, Joshua, Miriam, and Abigail.

Weekly Zohar Connection
Mar 26
Eitan Yardeni

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. This course offers you the opportunity to delve deeper into everything you’ve learned in The Power of Kabbalah courses and apply these dynamic concepts and tools to your life on an ongoing basis.

Reincarnation
Mar 26
Karen Berg

The study of reincarnation is about uncovering the reason we came to this world. Kabbalists teach our purpose in this lifetime is to grow, transform, and make the necessary corrections – also known as our tikkune. Many of the things we experience today are tied in some way to our past lives. Understanding cause and effect – how past events are connected to our present – empowers us to focus on the changes we need to make. Students will explore the ancient wisdom of Kabbalah and gain a deeper understanding of how our past lives are intimately connected. Learn to see the bigger picture of your life in relation to the world at large, so you can internalize the lessons necessary to complete your soul’s journey.

Decoding Pesach & Wine Tasting
Mar 28
Yosef Yeshurun

More than a simple holiday, Pesach is a cosmic window to a world free of negativity and chaos. By connecting to the light available during Pesach, we draw the energy of growth and rejuvenation into our lives, freeing ourselves from the influence of the ego so we can follow our soul's true desires. The kabbalalists say our connection depends on our consciousness, and provided tools for preparing our vessel to receive Pesach's powerful energy. Join us for an illuminating class as we explore the technology of Pesach and how to best prepare for its unique spiritual gifts. Discover tools for expanding your vessel's capacity for Light and take your connection to the next level. In addition to a Pesach study, the evening will be paired with a professional wine tasting night, led Ari Lockspeiser form Kosherwine. Ari will be presenting a seminar of "The 5 Ss of Wine Tasting". This seminar will cover everything from what to look for in a wine to how to determine the quality level of the wine. He will be focusing on the four wines that we will be tasting this evening: Festa d'Estate Rosa, Casa de Cielo Chardonnay, Chateau Les Riganes Bordeaux and the Dalton Canaan Red. By the end of the night we will all be experts on how to see, swirl, smell, sip and summarize a wine. Refreshments will be served as well.
