Kabbalah: The Tree of Life with Rabbi Jamie, November 21

A key to consciousness in Kabbalah is the Tree of Life, a visual map of how infinite and finite flow into and from each other. We enter places, form relationships and pursue projects often with little understanding of how they come about, their meaning and the relevance of seeing beyond what manifests. In this introduction to the Tree of Life we learn about and then practice incorporating this system of energy flow in all our interactions.
Join Rabbi Jamie right here at CBE for your introduction to Kabbalah. This 6 week class begins at 7PM on Wednesday, October 11.
