Program Modules Include:


We will practice the ancient/new technique of vocal harmonics for activating aspects of the "light-body" and clearing karmic imprints from the cellular memory. The techniques we will explore come from a variety of sources: Rabbi Abraham Abulafia, Pythagoras, Hazrat Inayat Khan, and cross-cultural shamanic teachings. You will explore vowel grids, tonal modulation, trance chant, spirit song, niggunim, and angelic invocations. You will begin to access your inner shaman & enhance your clairaudient & telepathic capacities.


We will be exploring our experiential knowledge of the spheres of the Tree-of-Life and the 22 pathways that connect these spheres. The Tree-of-Life will be explored as a map of consciousness and of the various energy bodies. The Chinese 5 element theory will be compared with the inner workings of the Tree-of-Life. We will learn the application of a wide variety of healing modalities as they relate to the tree: herbals, homeopathics, essential oils, flower remedies, gem & mineral elixirs, and star essences. You will learn a 22 movement treatment protocol that accesses the healing powers of the Hebrew fire letters.


Merkavah journeying is rooted within specific breath-work and visualization practices that allow the consciousness to travel to other dimensions. These techniques and practices parallel shamanic soul travel, past-life and future-life imaginal voyages. We will work in pairs and in matrix (groups of 3 and 6) to learn how these journeys can prepare us for radiatory healing. The dream work we will be exploring involves individual journal keeping, and rendezvous in the dream state.


The Jewish mystical path teaches us in subtle and metaphorical ways about the four worlds of self: the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical universes. The advanced teachings concerning the soul speaks of five levels or energy bodies. It is within these energy bodies that healing happens. We will explore the "border crossings" of these realms and the interplay between physical, psychological and spiritual selves. We will make our own journey into Pardes, or unity consciousness, to experience the healing that is available there. This will aid us in the development of kavannah (clear intention) and "loving presence."


Whether you are professionally trained as a medical doctor, psychologist, psychotherapist, doctor of homeopathy or acupuncture, a working knowledge of astrological cycles and timings can only enhance your practice. This segment of the training focuses on the mapping of initiations and the rites of passages we experience accelerated personal & planetary evolution approaching the portal of 2012. We will explore the paradigm of "the healing crisis" as an opportunity for soul growth. We will collectively design new ceremonies and rites of passage for ourselves and our loved ones. We will source the Sepher Yetzirah for a deeper understanding of the astrology of the soul.


We will practice a wide variety of meditation techniques in silence & with sound, in stillness & through movement, in solitude & within community, as a foundation for the attunement our soul work requires of us. We will loosen up with a creative s´fat autiot (language of the letters) a kind of kabbalistic tai chi, that serves to cleanse our personal tree-of-life and energy pathways. We will learn the art of personal balance through ritual play and cosmic humour. We will also expand our capacity to contact elemental & angelic energies via shamanic kabbalah meditations with crystals, minerals & harmonic sound...
