DIRECTOR, 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 the age of 14 and on, waking up almost every night at midnight until 4am 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. He edited and translated the first ever unabridged 23-volume set of the English Zohar, the ancient Aramaic text that is at the very core of kabbalistic thought – a monumental task which he began at the age of 18 and finished ten years later. 

Michael lectures worldwide and is a best-selling author who has developed a global following with books such as Secrets of the Bible, Becoming Like God, Well of Life, The Secret, and The Way. His acclaimed 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. His books – almost 20 thus far – 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. Michael is also the Creator and Director of Kabbalah.com, the online learning platform of The Kabbalah Centre, which offers kabbalistic wisdom in multiple languages to anyone who wants to learn.

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

Reincarnation
Jul 9
Rachel Auerbach

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.

Understanding cause and effect – how past events are connected to our present – empowers us to focus on the changes we need to make. In this four-week course, 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. This course will include meditations, kabbalistic astrology, to uncover the belief systems and life lessons that you’re meant to learn to complete your souls journey.

Zohar Connection Live Stream From New York
Jul 23
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.
