Kabbalah is an ancient Jewish body of wisdom about the nature of human beings and the universe. Having evolved over time, Kaballah holds mysteries within its teachings that help individuals to create a better life for themselves and a better world.
Traditionally, Judaism held that the concepts central to Kaballah are too complex and esoteric for males under the age of 40 to fully comprehend and apply. According to the Mishnah, an ancient work of Rabbinic literature, only males over 40 with a solid background in Jewish law possess sufficient wisdom to study, understand and apply Kaballistic teachings.
The Zohar, a seminal text in Kaballistic thought, contains codes to invisible universal laws and life embedded within Bible passages and stories. Unlocking these hidden lessons and applying them judiciously is tantamount to an enriched, fulfilling life.
The Kabbalah Centre teaches the integral lessons of the Kabbalah in such a way that makes them accessible, applicable and transformative. The Centre’s five core principles are Sharing, Balancing and Awareness of the Ego, Existence of Spiritual Laws, We All Are One and Leaving Our Comfort Zones Can Create Miracles.
Teachings also incorporate and illuminate the connectivity of widely held spiritual beliefs, which the Kabbalah Centre indicates are branches of universal wisdom. Other teachings refer to the importance of building a relationship with God’s essence, or the Light, having a healthy sex life per Kabbalistic recommendations and developing a deeper knowledge and appreciation for cosmic forces through the study of astrology.
The Kabbalah Centre disseminates the wisdom inherent of its core principles and other Kabbalistic teachings through audio projects, books, online lectures, classes and courses. Prospective students can interact online or at a number of locations in the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the United States.
The Kabbalah Centre offers its teachings to both genders, all ages, nationalities, races and religions. By extracting and simplifying what the Kabbalah has to offer, the Kabbalah Center makes it available to those who otherwise wouldn’t have access according to Jewish tradition.
Husband and wife team Philip and Karen Berg founded the Kabbalah Center International in 1984. Headquartered in Los Angeles, it is a non-profit organization with a multi-ethnic, international staff of teachers.
