Are You a Slave to Your Ego?

Kabbalistic Concepts | April 14, 2014

Are you a slave to your ego? Before you answer that, ask yourself the following questions: When was the last time you wanted something just for you? When have you felt like you needed more? Deserved more? When was the last time you refused to listen to someone, because you felt smarter than they are? Better than they are? Last month? Last week?... read more

The Words That Harm

Well Being | March 31, 2014

“I can’t believe I did that! I’m a complete idiot.” “I’m not good looking enough to talk to her.” “Why do I make such stupid mistakes?” “I’ll never get into law school. I’m just not smart enough” Lashon Hara is commonly associated with gossip or malicious talk about others. Yet, the term literally means evil tongue and can also describe harmful... read more

Everything is Consciousness

Kabbalistic Concepts | March 26, 2014

Our teacher Rav Berg would always tirelessly repeat, “It’s all about consciousness.” Kabbalists have revealed that consciousness governs everything that happens in the world and in our lives.

The Damage of Dishing the Dirt

Well Being | March 24, 2014

There once was a man who loved to tell stories. He shared stories with all of this customers and friends in the village where they lived. When he heard about a secret, rumor, or incident involving another person, he did not hesitate to share the details, and sometimes added a few details of his own to spice it up a bit. One day he learned some... read more

The REAL Meaning of Pesach

Holidays & Time Zones | March 20, 2014

I have attempted for a long period of time now to explain the true purpose behind each of our holidays.

Don't Believe What You See

Kabbalistic Concepts | March 18, 2014

I remember years ago, our beloved teacher and Spiritual Director of The Kabbalah Centre, Rav Berg of blessed memory, would say, “Don’t be from Missouri!!!” Since 1897, the state of Missouri was nicknamed the “Show Me State.” The “Show Me” part signifying, of course, that I only believe in what I can see. Only what my 5 senses tell me is the truth... read more

It's a Mistake

Personal Transformation | March 17, 2014

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue…in search of spices, gold, and a quick route to East Asia. On his first voyage westward, Columbus predicted that he and his crew would land in India in approximately one month’s time. The trip to solid land ended up taking twice that time. That’s a pretty big mistake for an explorer to make, considering all... read more

The Connections of Purim

Holidays & Time Zones | February 27, 2014

In the midst of such chaos in my life, I have been able to find peace through studying Kabbalah. Without any doubts whatsoever, I would highly recommend anyone to call. I am so thankful for The Kabbalah Centre, because it has made all the difference in my spiritual growth and development.
- Susan Perry Simpson

Kabbalah is the best gift I have had this year. But it did not come easy. It is a result of a lot of hard, focused, and disciplined work my teacher guided me through. Often I had to go out of my comfort zone to apply the tools. But the satisfaction and confidence I now feel is indescribable.

- Sam Parnaso

Now I look back and question what exactly I did and how I managed without these teachings in my life.
