Kabbala & Shalom Bayit: Lesson 1
Kabbala & Shalom Bayit: The Kabbala of Shalom Bayit
Shalom. Tonight we will continue looking at the harmony between husbands and wives, and in all relationships in general, and how it is rooted in the first moments of the Creation of Adam and Chava. Included will also be a section from the Tikunei Zohar 40 which describes some beautiful and important distinctions between the masculine and feminine powers when considering the phenomena of prophecy. This information is vital and practical and it is a pleasure and privilege to share this learning together.
Kabbala & Shalom Bayit: Kabbalah and Shalom Bayis
Tonight will be our fourth in the series of the relationship of Adam and Chava as seen through the kabbalah and creation narrative. After examining last week the creation as Chava as a metaphor for the externilzation of Adam’s inner essence and the extraction of speech, we understand why the rabbi’s said 10 portions of speech came to the world and 9 were taken by women. Women are the essence of the godly activity of speech and thus Adam recognized Chava as one of his own because of her of voice.
Tonight we will focus on the distinctions of how adam and chava were cursed and the results of the fall, and how men and women are still impacted by those biblical realities, and the nature of difference of the commands placed on Adam and Chava. Look forward to seeing you there.
