The Kabbalah, a mystical teaching rooted in Judaism, has played a central role in the Western esoteric traditions for hundreds of years. In this four-part webinar, Richard Smoley will explore the history and ideas of this tradition. He will explore the Kabbalistic diagram known as the Tree of Life and show how it relates to human life and consciousness. He will also introduce some new material on the Sefer Yetzirah, the oldest and one of the most mysterious Kabbalistic texts. The course will be accessible to beginners, but it should interest more advanced students as well.
Richard Smoley, editor of Quest: Journal of the Theosophical Society in America, is the author of nine books on spirituality and mysticism. His latest is How God Became God: What Scholars Are Really Saying about God and the Bible.
