Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Miryam Basham and her family have been involved with Kabbalah for many years, giving her a familiarity with the ancient wisdom even as a child. Though it was not until Miryam traveled to California as a young adult that Kabbalah took on a much greater role in her life. Prompted by a strong feeling that there must be more to life than what we can physically sense, she started to delve more deeply into the study.
In January of 2007, Miryam became actively involved with The Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles. By 2009, she began teaching in London when she realized her path involved sharing the tools and wisdom of Kabbalah with others. She is grateful to be able to witness the positive transformation that Kabbalah brings to the lives of her students. She truly enjoys presenting the teachings of kabbalists in a light, yet highly engaging way. She teaches from the heart, aiming to make complex concepts practical and relatable to students so they can easily integrate them into their lives. Miryam’s ultimate goal is to be an active part of creating positive change in the world, allowing more people to fulfill their spiritual desires.
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.
Shabbat is a time to come together with the Kabbalah community in celebration and song, as we share a meaningful meal. We close the week mindfully, while setting intentions and sowing seeds for an abundant week ahead. Join us for a rejuvenating evening as you experience the transformative power of a Shabbat meal with our vibrant community.
