Shalom to everyone.

Tonight we will explore the underlying structures of the worlds, their names and the significance of the learning the myriad paradigm structures which underlie the universe.  We will learn about an essential concept i call in English, the Affinity of Form, and why it is so essential for understanding the Unity underlying creation.  The names of these ‘energy fields’ and their relationships will be covered along with the subtle yet profound impact learning these ideas has upon Consciousness.  Time permitting we will also touch on the reasons why this wisdom has been hidden for centuries and why it is being revealed today.  Look forward to seeing you there.  Avraham Shira

Shalom and Welcome

This week we will continue our examination of the various paradigm structures by which Kabbalah views the Universe, Man and Judaism.

We will look at the ten sefirot as emotional centers as expressed through the ten vowels, as information centers as expressed through the names of the sefirot, and time permitting explore the Divine Family, the kaballah of the Partzufim of the Ari’zal, as the ultimate energy management system.  Look forward to seeing you there.  Please bring your questions, comments and experience to the class.

Always, Avraham Shira
