Description

Reincarnation, the idea of souls returning in different lifetimes, is an extremely mystical and fascinating topic. Why is reincarnation necessary? How does it work? Does a person remember who he or she was in previous lifetimes? How does reincarnation affect one's current life? What about soul mates? 

These are just some of the many questions people ask regarding the topic, and which will be answered in this highly informative and illuminating course, based upon the authoritative work of the famous Kabbalist, Rabbi Yitzchak Luria, "Sha'ar HaGilgulim," or the "Gate of Reincarnations." This course is an extensive overview of fundamentals and key points concerning reincarnation, and how it affects life and history. 

The course will also explains mystical concepts such as the "Sefiros," the basis of all of spiritual and physical existence, and the five levels of each individual soul. It will also make clear how education plays a key role in personal development and self-fulfillment, and specifically certain kinds of learning. As an entertaining bonus, this course will also detail some of the more famous reincarnations from past history.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is designed for people who want to understand the concept of reincarnation, why it is important to personal development, and how it has affected and impacts history. It is based upon traditional Jewish mysticism, and the student may have to look up some of the names and terms to find the correct english translation. Everyone from a person with little or no background to someone with extensive knowledge of the topic should be able to benefit from this course.

The Hebrew "pardes" sounds a lot like the English word, "paradise." This is because the first Paradise, the Garden of Eden, was in fact a pardes, that is, an orchard. It was not your typical fruit orchard, however, more like an intellectual paradise, the best kind.
