Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, Ria worked as a television broadcaster for twenty years. During this time, she produced a feature on The Kabbalah Centre’s very first event in the Philippines in 2006. She was immediately drawn to the profound, yet easy-to-apply, concepts of the wisdom, and soon became a dedicated student, exuberant volunteer, and Spirituality for Kids (SFK) teacher.
From the start, Ria felt strongly that people in her part of the world stood to benefit immensely from the Centre's life-changing knowledge and tools. She took to heart the kabbalistic understanding that everything in our lives exists to propel us towards our greatest potential. As one of the Philippines Study Group leaders for many years, Ria helped set up the Philippines Kabbalah Centre – the very first in Asia. She officially became a Kabbalah Centre Instructor in 2016.
Ria’s light and practical teaching style reflects her ability to take deep concepts and communicate them effectively to her students. Her goal is to empower others with the same confidence to fully engage life she has gained through the study and application of Kabbalah. Ria lives in her hometown of Manila with her husband and four children.
All of the spiritual work we do on the High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot culminates in the celebration known as Simchat Torah. The Zohar explains that restriction already exists on Simchat Torah; therefore it is a festive day in which we can sit back and enjoy the Light. On Simchat Torah, we experience the revelation of all of the Light of the Torah, known as Surrounding Light. Surrounding Light is the union of past, present and future, and allows us to rise above the illusion of time to eliminate chaos from our lives. Surrounding Light is already with us, but it must be awakened to truly become a part of us. This is why, on Simchat Torah, we dance around with the Torah: The process of dancing makes the Light become part of us. And when we achieve unity with the Light, we reunite with our timeless, limitless—perfect—selves.
