Annual International Summer School 2020 – September 1-4

The Way of Kabbalah
Annual international summer school 2020
September 1st – September 4th 2020

The Kabbalah Society’s residential summer school is held annually at Hawkwood College in Stroud, Gloucestershire. For over 30 years it was guided by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi (Warren Kenton) and in 2014, at the age of 82, he decided to rest from this task and pass it on to Kurt Browne and Joanna Lapage-Browne.

The course offers an opportunity to gather in peaceful surroundings to create a space for interior work, away from the demands of everyday life.

During a period of four days, contemplation, guided imagery meditations, lectures and practical exercises will assist in bringing the Teaching to life. Afternoon breaks will allow time for solitude, conversation, local trips or walks in the surrounding grounds and woodland.

Kurt Browne and Joanna Lapage-Browne
Kurt and Joanna have studied in the Toledano Tradition School of the Soul, founded by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi (Warren Kenton), since the early 1970s. They live and work in London, and have one son, two daughters and six grandchildren. Together, they have run Kabbalah groups throughout the past 30 years and conducted courses on the Tradition in Europe, Africa, Mexico, Japan and the USA.

Hawkwood College
Hawkwood is an enchanting 19th English mansion surrounded by 42 acres of beautiful woodland and fields, with exceptional views across the countryside towards the mountains of Wales in the distance. While the course is intense, it is also a holiday in good company. Here, enduring friendships are forged between people from many lands. This is a characteristic of the Kabbalah Society’s School of the Soul.

Kabbalah and the Divine Feminine – Devon UK – March 1st 2020

Kabbalah and the Divine Feminine.

Maggy Whitehouse

LOCATION: EXETER, DEVON.

Booking via Colin John. 01392 221066 / 07376 489302 email: colinjohn1st@outlook.com.

DATE: Sunday 1st March. Cost: £35.

Stories of love, hate, adultery, deception, betrayal, murder, compassion and redemption — it could be any soap opera on the television today.  But this is a much older production; a blockbuster told by over 20 generations of feisty and powerful women, every one of whom still has something to teach us today.

We will learn of the different levels of humanity and how rising to the place of the Soul can transform our own lives just as the heroines of the Bible discovered. They can be our guide to our own Soul’s purpose.

Maggy will weave the story of Sophia, the feminine wisdom tradition from Shekhinah to Mary Magdalene via the women of the Bible — including Sarah (survival), Rebekah (ego), Ruth (self-knowledge), Jael (discernment) and Esther (unconditional love).

We will look at these Matriarchs and Heroines through the filter of Judaic mysticism and historical and social fact to see what we can still learn from them today. Each of them is an archetype within us and can show us our strength – and our shadow.

Enquiries and booking: martin.nathanael@btinternet.com

We humans are complicated, dualistic beings, focused on being busy and appreciated and fretting about external circumstances such as finances, work and the troubles of the world. From birth, we are trained to fit in and, whether we agree or rebel, our ego’s belief about what is right and what is wrong will drive our lives unless we make conscious efforts to change that.

We know that we are a soul with a body, not the other way around, but the soul seems to be a slippery thing and there is so much confusion about what is self, soul, spirit and higher self. Kabbalah offers a clear and practical design that shows us clearly the difference between who we think we are (ego), who we truly are (self), who we are meant to be (soul), who we came here to learn to become (higher self) and the help that is perennially available (spirit).

Using stories, discerning through Kabbalistic astrology, the blueprint of each participant’s soul, practical exercises and a life-changing internal journey to the heavenly Jerusalem, we will learn to recognise, listen to, and understand the levels within us in order to become our best (and happiest) selves.

All participants are requested to let Maggy have their birth data to help them understand the blueprint of their soul.

Kabbalah and the Way of Myth – Hawkwood College UK – August 31-September 1 2020

Workshop: Kabbalah and the way of myth

Hawkwood college, Stroud UK

31st August & 1st of September 2020

In this course we will explore through theory and practice, the metaphysics of Kabbalah in relation to the rich inner world of the collective unconscious. The way of Kabbalah and myth is the path into ourselves.

Tutor biography:  Mike Bais, born and living in the Netherlands is by profession a physiotherapist and a teacher in university for medical and therapeutic studies. He has run his practice for over 18 years where he gives counseling and therapy from a holistic perspective. He teaches the esoteric ways of the west in particular the tradition of Kabbalah (Toledano) and has written many articles on these subjects and is the author of the book: “A Kabbalistic view on science”. He is an ordained priest in the mystical-Christian tradition. He also leads a group called the ‘companions of the Round Table’.

In this course the metaphysics of Kabbalah will meet the wisdom of mythology. They will cross-fertilize each other as we work towards synthesis between this deep knowledge of the collective unconscious and that of the Tree of Life and Jacobs Ladder. The course will be dynamic as we integrate theory and practice and tap into the richness of the many mythological traditions that the worlds knows. It will be a personal journey into ourselves as the myth and Kabbalah are eventually about our inner life.

At a glance:

  • Intune to the myth on a personal level (living your own myth)
  • Integrate Kabbalah and mythological concepts
  • Practice our myths & Kabbalah so we have direct experience of them

What will participants gain:

  • Greater understanding and insights into the world of myth and Kabbalah
  • Self-knowledge through the instructive and animating power of myth
  • Learning more about the psychological and metaphysical structure of myth
  • Practical application of the way of myth and Kabbalah in your personal life

Main content:

Myth is as old as the human psyche, speaking its own language ever since. Kabbalah is an ancient tradition that has the metaphysical teachings to explain mythological concepts and make them real in our personal world of experience. Myth, like dreams have always been a mystery for most of mankind. It talks through metaphor, symbol, analogy and the heart. To participate in the myth is to participate in the language and that mysterious world of dreams and the imagination. Like it was said: ‘myth is something that never happened and is always happening’.

Join us in this dynamic course, where we will work with old texts, poetry, meditations and some practice, to express the myth in and through our own being. Like Joseph Campbell said: the myth has four functions which are a social & pedagogical, psychological & moral, metaphysical and mystical function. The Kabbalah in this course will explain what these mean for us personally. Joseph Campbell, the concept of the hero’s journey, Jungian analysis, alchemy, the Tree of Life and Jacobs Ladder of the Kabbalah will guide us in these days at Hawkwood College. If you wish to live your myth or grow closer to the myth you are already in-tuned with, this course might be something for you.

A workshop on our Body and our Heart, their relationship to the Tree of Life and the psyche (the Yetziratic Tree).

For whom
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. 

Andy Henry

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.   

Toledano Tradition
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
