A workshop on our Body and our Heart, their relationship to the Tree of Life and the psyche (the Yetziratic Tree). Physical exercises and meditations will be practised to investigate the body and its relationship to the Four Elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire. As we work with the Way of Action and unify these Four Elements more within us we can deepen our experience of the Four Worlds and hence receive more the influx of the upper worlds.
We will also study the Tree of Compassion and work on our experience of Energy and Structure, its connection to the Way of Devotion, the development of Compassion and their relationship to the Tree of Life. Different exercises and meditations will be used to research this path developing the experience of the flow of grace from above and how it comes out in the world.
With the integration of theses two aspects we have a support and a guide as to how we use our Body and our Heart in our life and the paths we take.
This workshop is addressed to anyone that is interested in studying or developing knowledge on Kabbalah, being the only pre-requisite to have a genuine interest on this subject, regardless of the person’s philosophy, beliefs, religion (or its absence), gender, race or social status.
The workshop will be with Andy Henry, who has been teaching Kabbalah since 2005. He has studied Kabbalah with Z’ev Ben Shimon Halevi and other teachers since 1995. He is a well established teacher and healer in the Eastern Traditions, running healing clinics and teaching groups in England, Spain and Portugal since 1990.
This line of Kabbalah follows the Tradition of Toledo School, that has its roots on medieval Spain where Judaism, Christianism and Islamism met in a civilized and cosmopolitan atmosphere, in this environment took place an esoteric fusion between religion and philosophy. The hallmark of the Toledano lineage is Jacob’s Ladder, a metaphysical scheme of the Four Worlds originated from the Kabbalístic Tree of Life. This diagram is the key to understand Existence, and our role in it
