Until recently, the teachings of the Kabbalah were not accessible to many outside the Jewish faith. However, in recent years the Kabbalah Centre (based in Los Angeles, CA) has made the teachings of the Kabbalah available to all. Courses are available that focus on finding greater meaning in every day thoughts and actions. For example, by committing to offer one’s full efforts to a group project in the workplace, an individual is better serving others and committing to offering the best version of themselves they can offer.
The Kabbalah does focus on the next life, but also places importance on how people interact with the world around them. By focusing on meaningful connections with others and finding peace in moderation, one can learn to improve interpersonal relationships and find joy in the day to day.
The Kabbalah Centre was founded by Rav Ashlag in 1924; now run by Phillip Berg, and his wife, Karen, they compile much of the coursework currently available. Courses can be taken online or in local Kabbalah Centre facilities across many cities in the country. The coursework is designed to be understandable and relatable to a diverse populace, of many ethnicities and backgrounds.
Operating as a non-profit organization, The Kabbalah Centre teaches the wisdom available through studying the Kabbalah predates the Bible and other world religions, and can be studied by people of any faith background. Students explore the origin of Creation, physical and spiritual laws of the universe, and the journey each human soul takes.
Aspiring students can easily navigate the Kabbalah Centre website to gain an understanding on how to begin their path of study, either online or in-person. A great amount of resources are also available online and scholarships are available to those who qualify.
