The Kabbalah is the heart of Jewish Mysticism. The word means "That Which is Received," and relates to the ongoing reality of revelation in Judaism. During this presentation, Rabbi Ted will talk about how the three basic levels of human identity are described by the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, and how we might awaken ourselves utilizing the wisdom of the Kabbalah. Voluntary contributions will benefit Playscape.
Spiritual guide, author, teacher and therapist, Rabbi Ted Falcon, Ph.D., has been a student and teacher of Jewish meditation and Kabbalah for over forty years. With gentleness and humor, he offers unique insight into spirituality while deeply affirming the integrity of each individual being.
As part of the Interfaith Amigos, Rabbi Ted explores the frontiers of interfaith spirituality. Karen Armstrong calls their "exuberant and courageous" new book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith, "an inspiration and example for all of us in these sadly polarized times."
"Moses teaches us that the pains associated with our complaining end not through outer change but through deep healing. Our complaints often hide the hurt we are experiencing."
"When I received my rabbinic training in the mid-1960s, I had never heard of such a thing as Jewish meditation. Whether any of my teachers at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, all products of the Enlightenment, were familiar with this practice, I do not know, but I am certain they would have dismissed it as irrational."
