This course provides a foundational understanding of the history of Kabbalah and the story of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the founder of Kabbalah. It also aids to expand our consciousness and awareness through the profound understanding of Jewish mysticism, that this world is being created over and over again by the wisdom of the tzimtzum and how does this knowledge reflect into our daily life.
This class also provides a basic understanding about the essence of the light, which is love. This helps us to create transformation, meaning to change from our place to a new place, find balance and experience less emotional tribulations, while planting seeds of divine wisdom, which is the equivalent to the superconscious in the psychotherapy world. Those seeds help us to find within ourselves the strength to make the change, to transform ourselves, thus transforming our world.
Tzimtzum- Within us, it means to contract your ego, to make a conscious action like an inner command, to withdraw your senses inward and to get into a state of observation, reviewing the situation. On a broader sense, according to the divine wisdom of Judaism,, the tzimtzum is defined as the action that the Creator did in order to allow us to be created to live our life in a world of free will. In other words, it is the contraction and expansion of the Light.
Practical meditation that will help you to encompass what you've learned in the course into your life, into your relationships, having the ability to flow and to let go.
Throughout his incredible life journey traveling the world seeking spiritual truth, mystical scholar Eyal Binyamin Karoutchi passed over a decade of extensive study of the teachings found within the American Indians, Buddhism, and Hinduism. He became an expert of this wisdom through his experiences living in monasteries in Thailand and India and studying with some of the foremost reputable sources on spirituality and religion. After many years of exploration and integration, he finally ventured onto the spiritual path of his roots found within Judaism and the ancient wisdom of the Old Testament. Returning to his native land of Israel, he began to learn the secret wisdom of the Holy Scriptures of Judaism with the same clarity as the other philosophies he had studied.
Owing greatly to the Divine Chassidic wisdom, which came to the world through famed Jewish sages the H”Ari, Kadosh, Rabbi Yitzhak Luria, and the Holy Rabbi Israel Bal Shem Tov, Eyal learned a divine method of communication through observing the process of creation, which he incorporates into his own teachings today.
Currently, Eyal Binyamin Karoutchi is a senior lecturer and general manager at Ascent, a spiritual center for Jewish consciousness and the inner dimensions of Jewish life in the Holy city of Tzfat, Israel. He is certified in a variety of healing modalities such as CBT and NLP, and serves the community as a life coach, marriage counselor, mediator, communication advisor, and teaches yoga and Jewish meditation all over Israel and worldwide.
