While at a book fair in her native Israel, Yael came across Kabbalah and instantly connected with the wisdom. She bought a Zohar on the spot and registered for the very next Kabbalah 1 course. She valued how the teachings gave her an understanding of how things work in life, giving her the ability to be in control in her own.
Quickly realizing she had found her platform to effect positive change in the world, Yael immersed herself in the wisdom, becoming a full-time volunteer in 2001 and a Kabbalah Centre Instructor in 2011. She likes to be practical in her teaching method so that students can use the lessons learned in their everyday life. Not one to be afraid of sharing experiences from her own life, Yael jokes that by the end of a 4-week course students know her inside and out. She particularly enjoys teaching about love and relationships, believing that all spiritual work manifests through relationships with others.
Yael currently teaches Kabbalah in Toronto, where she lives with her husband and their four children. She envisions a world in which all peoples remember that we are all one and embrace unconditional love for each other. Kabbalah has changed her life by helping her to understand her life and get out her comfort zone to have new experiences, and she hopes to impart that same transformation on as many people as possible.
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.
