The Ten Sefirot with Yosef Rosen
At the heart of Kabbalah lies a startling & mysterious claim: the Divine is dynamic, self-emergent, and composed of ten powers. Overflowing in symbols, magic, & mythology, the sefirot have provided Jews with a new, non-dual, cosmology that changed the course of Jewish spirituality. We will explore the history of this theological model & its capacity to transform contemporary Jewish practice – with special emphasis on the ecological & psychological components of the sefirot. If Tu B’shvat is the Jewish celebration of earthen trees, in this workshop we will celebrate a more ethereal tree–The Tree of Life
