Just curious if anyone else here is planning to begin the new Kabbalah.info course when it starts on September 9th?

I signed up for it last September and did get about half way through but other commitments meant I couldn't see it through so I'm signing up again this year. It's free and I'm always interested in learning new things but it'd be great to have people from ATS to discuss it with.

Kabbalah seems to be something misunderstood by a lot of people since Madonna and co. joined The Kabbalah Centre (Kabbalah.com)which is actually a completely different entity than Kabbalah.info(no red strings or other gadgets and gizmos are used by Kabbalah.info and all their materials - audio, ebooks, videos, etc, are all free to download).


What is Kabbalah? Because it deals with fixed truths and universal principles it may be more correctly viewed as a science, a science that is felt by us as wisdom. It translates the architecture upon which all Creation is premised into an accessible guide that will profoundly enrich the life of the person who approaches it for the right reason. It contains the key that explains not only the way our inner and outer worlds are constructed, but why. It teaches a method that allows the spiritual seeker to live in exact accord with the guiding force behind the whole of reality and to work in the same way it does: with a higher creativity used only for the well-being and fulfillment of life. Kabbalah is called hidden because its purpose is to define and reveal our own and the higher nature that goes undetected by our senses... read more



Course Description- The course is done live in streaming Windows Media Video. During the broadcast you will be able to interact with the instructor and submit your questions for discussion during the classes. Though the lessons originate live, recordings are stored on the site for review. You will also have access to films, Kabbalistic music and supporting texts and materials. The first part of the course explains the key to this long hidden wisdom, and provides a firm basis in the principle of Kabbalah revealing its methodology making clear its true purpose and use. We then move to Intermediate study in which we learn the practical application of the method and finally we progress to preparation for advanced classes taught by Rav Michael Laitman, PhD - one of the world´s foremost Kabbalists... read more



Who Can Study Kabbalah? - When Rav Kook, the great 20th century Kabbalist and the first Chief Rabbi of Israel was asked who could study Kabbalah, his answer was unequivocal: "Anyone who wants to. In the last one hundred years, all the Kabbalists without exception clearly stated, and on many occasions, that today Kabbalah is open to all. Moreover, they said that it is a necessary tool in resolving the global crisis that they predicted would come, and which we are facing today. According to all Kabbalists, Kabbalah's hiding days are over. The wisdom of Kabbalah was previously hidden because Kabbalists feared that it would be misused, and misunderstood. And indeed, the little that did seep out evoked numerous misconceptions about it. Because Kabbalists state that our generation is ready to understand the real meaning of Kabbalah, and to clear up the past misconceptions, this science is now being opened to all who wish to learn... read more


I hope I don't sound like a commercial as that's not my intention. I'm not affiliated in any way with Bnei Baruch - Kabbalah Education and Research Institute. I'm just signed up to take the course and thought it would be much more fun to discuss it with other ATS members that might also be taking it.

why seek what one knows?

think about it, does a tree ask why it is a tree?

No, but if it could it might wonder why.

Or maybe it would ask "Why am I not a bird?"

Maybe I don't really know - actually I don't even really want to know. Well, not all the answers anyway because then life would become very dull. However, I do like to learn, get other opinions about things so I love the chance to dig deeper into subjects that interest me.

I mean to include this video in the OP but forgot. It's called Perceiving Reality and I found it very interesting. (It's in English)

The point is the question, not the answer
as the question comes first always, if you understand this then one already knows the answer and has no reason to ask
