Just what is this “Kabalah” that in recent years has become a household word? It seems now that it is a sort of generic term, much the same as one would say education, which can relate to a variety of systems and levels. For instance, in elementary school basic mathematics are studied, then in high school higher applications such as geometry and calculus may be studied, and finally while in college, these subjects are integrated into a profession or vocation, a state of being, one might say.

For thirty years the Karin Kabalah Center has presented the study of Kabalah as it relates to the mystical tradition, which in a sense, could be said to relate to a university or college level of education wherein one not only studies subjects but also becomes the status to which they relate, such as a physician, an attorney, etc. What does one become when he/she utilizes the Kabalah as a tool or process of discovery? Simply said, one becomes himself or herself. To cite an example of just what mysticism is — we all know the taste of an orange, and knowing that taste is vastly important for the use of oranges in recipes. Now substitute the word “yourself” for “orange.” It is important for us to know ourselves so that the recipes we concoct in life are appropriate for that taste, otherwise those experiences can be either nonproductive or even painful. Just as becoming a physician requires not only the study of medicine, but the integration of the ability to practice as a physician, so does the becoming of oneself require the same. Through a process that includes the use of archetypes, meditation and a synthesis of the important essentials found in psychology, theology, science and philosophy, one finds the power of his/her true being. There are no shortcuts, no magic formulas and no outer activity that can lead to this inner freedom of self so desperately sought after and needed in our world today.

The TREE OF LIFE is one of the oldest and most powerful archetypes in existence. Through unconscious recognition and identification with the Tree and through the use of the Pathways connecting its principles in the practice of meditation, as well as in their daily application to the life experience, one finds oneself becoming free from the stress and pressure resulting from immersion within the external world. This freedom leads to a fuller life experience applying one’s individuality (or taste) where it is appropriate and also in ways that serve all mankind as we move into a new world consciousness.

This new world requires that we become spiritual adults, a state in which we are responsible for our lives, our actions and our experiences. It also requires that we respect each others individualism and their right to bring that individualism (taste) into their own patterns (recipes). This cannot be achieved as long as mankind is attached to or co-dependent with anything or anyone outside of himself and while the journey may not always be easy, the freedom and power gained far exceeds the effort expended. It is then that the beauty of the world and oneself truly shines. It is also very exciting to discover the reality of one’s being — sometimes it is even very surprising!

Kabalah may be mysticism, but it is not a mystery. A mystery can be solved, even the mystery of just who we are. Mysticism is the realization of that mystery and its power of freedom in a personal as well as universal world that often seems unfree. Mysticism is what empowers the solved mystery and power can only be described by that which is empowered

Just as there are many tastes in our world, each unique and individual unto itself, we as soul beings, each have our individual taste and the journey of life demands we discover it.

– Have you completed The Course in Miracles and wish to delve more deeply into the innermost levels of your psyche?

‑Have you read The Secret and want to discover the real secret of life?

‑Have you read The Power of Now and wish to empower your life in the now?

‑Have you studied Science of Mind and wish to understand the science of the universe?

‑Have you studied psychology and wish to travel the journey to the Self described by Carl Jung?

‑Are you looking for a definitive and comprehensive study, a transformative process, which can help you establish balance and ­harmony in your life?

Kabalah has been known as the mysticism within Judaism. The understanding contained within this mysticism, however, was given to mankind long before the existence of Judaism. From a singular source it flowed through both Eastern and Western philosophies and from Judaism it was carried forward into Christianity. What is contained in this mysticism? It contains the understanding of Divinity, the universe, mankind and their interrelationship. With each step forward in evolution, man must redefine this understanding in accordance with his current level of awareness.

Not merely intellectual or devotional, the Kabalah, in this time and space, becomes a process through which man can develop the potential of his spiritual adulthood and lead a productive and harmonious life in a universe which has reached evolutionary adulthood. Man must now integrate and become that which religious philosophies and mysticism have described, much the same as one studies medicine in order to become a physician.

KABALAH: A PROCESS OF AWAKENING is an exciting study course which not only ­establishes and redefines traditional Kabalistic knowledge but provides a philosophical/psychological/spiritual, and most of all, transformative process of development.

New Class TBA

The Bhagawad Gita and the Mahabharata

Taught by Alok Agrawal STM
New Class to be announced
2-4 pm   •   Fee: $85 every 4 classes (Includes class materials) Remote Study Available

All classes will be held online through Zoom until further notice. Details about the class will be sent to each student. Everyone can tune in. It is very easy. You just have to click the link that that will be sent to you on a weekly basis.

A 28-week course that explores Vedic teachings as conveyed through the Bhagavad-Gita and the stories of the Mahabharata.

Eighteen chapters of the Bhagawad Gita are more profound to a spiritual realization than many of the courses offered in the same field. Every chapter touches the core of our being and nourishes the seed which blossoms our inner flower.

Along with the study of the Mahabharata, a deep enriched mythology which is the study of human psychology where every character is symbolic of one of the human traits, this course is a complete study of ourselves-psychologically and spiritually. Remarkably, humanity is currently reliving this ancient story. Thus, it is important to study it’s meaning in order to understand and learn to cope in this current situation. 

Come and join this class where two sacred scriptures are brought up-to-date to enhance everyday life. This class is a “must-do” for enhancing your Yoga practice!

Today’s turbulent times are challenging for many of us. It can be difficult to keep outer circumstances from disturbing inner peace. Just as the SPF factor in sunscreen protects us from the harmful rays of the sun, a mindset of Serenity, Power, and Freedom can protect us from the craziness of life in the 21st Century: work stress, relationship/fmily issues, health challenges, financial concerns, world events, you name it. This course synthesizes a unique combination of concepts pulled from general psychology and modern spirituality. It offers new perspectives that provide clarity, purpose, and the ability to move ahead in the face of uncertainty, challenges, and change. This gives you the ability to embrace your life’s journey and the freedom to experience more joy, power, presence, and inner peace along the way.

SHUSTAH READING

By Shirley Chambers

$150/Session (Available online through Zoom): Call the Center at (404) 320-1038 to schedule your session

This 45-minute reading is not based on an Astrological Chart, (although it can be useful, if one is available and furnished by the client), but rather applies intuitive counseling to each of the twelve houses (segments) of life as they are impacted at the present, as well as the direction of that impact into the future. This is an in-depth look at all avenues of one’s life along with bringing to the surface the choices one may or may not see.  In this often chaotic and  confusing world, the greater one understands the flow of Divine life as it impacts the individual segments of life, the greater one is freer to live that life in harmony and joy.

INTUITIVE COUNSELING

Alok Agrawal, M.Phil., STM

$75/40 minute session (Available online through Zoom): Call the Center at (404) 320-1038 to schedule your session

Intuitive counseling adjusts itself into the needs of the individual seeking help, therefore techniques are unique to those needs. Its purpose is to aid the client to integrate the bigger picture of an event or issue which is affecting the harmony in his/her life. Often one’s mind becomes cluttered and confused and thereby unable to clearly see an accurate picture of what is occurring. One becomes mired down in illusory beliefs and concepts, which, in turn, create both emotional and physical imbalance and/or disease. Through the aid of intuitive counseling, archetypal analysis, individually designed meditations and Kabalistic healing, be it health, relationships or job related, one may not only come to understand the issue but also find the road to harmony and balance. Through the development of inner confidence and self-empowerment, each one ultimately becomes his/her own counselor and intuitive counseling helps one unfold that ability.

MEDITATION INSTRUCTION

Alok Agrawal, M.Phil., STM

$50/hour session (Available online through Zoom): Call the Center at (404) 320-1038 to schedule your session

Each session is geared to the individual’s needs and experience. It utilizes a modern scientific approach coupled with the tenets of yoga. In a four week session you can integrate a simple technique which will allow you to relax your mind in this hectic world.

Meditation has long been the cornerstone of many spiritual traditions. In addition to this application, western scientists have come to realize that meditation provides many health benefits as well. These include: lowered blood pressure, reduced stress, decreased insomnia and strengthened immune system. Various psychological effects including lowered anxiety, improved mental focus and self-esteem augment these physical benefits. What the mystics throughout time have known, people in the common era are discovering that meditation is good for you on all levels. People from all walks of life are using meditation and sound enhancing technologies to help them manifest their goals and live more fully.

KNOW YOURSELF THROUGH ASTROLOGY – INTERPRETING YOUR NATAL CHART

By Wade Hyde

$125/Session (Available online through Zoom): Call the Center at (404) 320-1038 to schedule your session

Begin to discover yourself and the steps of your journey toward that life waiting for you.

“‑This is indeed India, the land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendor and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of a thousand nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of tradition, whose yesterdays bear date with the mouldering antiquities of the rest of the nations—the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the globe combined” — Mark Twain
