LESSON TWO: The Dawn of Limitation

Probe the Divine realm of G-d’s ten sefirot and the corresponding powers of the soul. Discover how knowledge of our soul’s root can clarify individual purpose and provide guidance for maximizing strengths and managing weaknesses.

LESSON FOUR: The World of Chaos

Study the primordial spiritual universe of Tohu, its purpose in creation, and its enduring impact on human nature. Discover the roots of inner moral conflict and the key to harnessing our negative natures to achieve fulfillment.

LESSON FIVE: The Great Concealment

Explore the process of tzimtzum, or how G-d conceals His infinity to create space for our reality. See how this translates into guidance for empowering others and seeking growth potential in life’s darkest moments.

LESSON SIX: The Essence of Everything

Uncover the reality that precedes everything, the essence of the Divine Self, and the surprising purpose of our physical universe. Learn insights into the human self’s deepest motivation and purpose and our capacity to repair wrongs.
