Kabbalah is an ancient practice that focuses on gaining wisdom and working to receive fulfillment in life. Kabbalahists develop the ability to maintain a longlasting connection to the energy of fulfillment by gaining knowledge and understanding of how the universe and life work. Those who study Kabbalah seek a deeper meaning to life and seek to overcome the chaos and strife that life’s circumstances can cause people to feel. They study to understand life’s existential mysteries like who we are and what our purpose is. Study of the Zohar – a five thousand year old set of spiritual principles that form the basis of Kabbalism – is the key to practicing and understanding this faith. The path to experiencing the universe and all that life has to offer as the Creator intended is laid out in the Zohar’s teachings.
The Kabbalah Centre International is an organization based in Los Angeles that offers courses on the Zohar, Kabbalistic teachings and guidance to people all over the world who want to study the Zohar’s teachings and the path to deeper understanding of the universe. Founded in 1965 the Kabbalah Centre is now a nonprofit organization with over 50 locations, several in major cities including LA, New York, and London. It strives to spread the values of peace and reflecting on the good in life that understanding of Kabbalah can bring by taking a global and inclusive approach to teaching about the faith.
Despite Kabbalah’s connection to the Jewish faith the Kabbalah Centre offers its teachings to students who have no prior knowledge of Hebrew or Jewish texts. A multiethnic, international staff of teachers encourages the global community of students the the centre enjoys. Students can also come from many different faiths because the Kabbalah Centre’s philosophy is that kabbalah’s teachings are not religion specific or exclusive, it’s teachings instead help to reinforce and affirm the spiritual beliefs of other religions.
