Kabbalah is one of the oldest spiritualities in the world. Kabbalah is not a religion, but it originated when the Jewish population was formed along the Jordan River. There were over three million people who made the trek from Egypt to the area of Israel today. This area was only populated sparsely, but the spirituality of Kabbalah existed.The principles of Kabbalah is the ancient wisdom. From that time forward, the wisdom was studied only between priests and other spiritual leaders and was passed down from generation to generation.Today, documents have been found and translated into many languages, so the principles can be studied. The students learn to solve the problems in their lives. This practice gained more attention by 1300 AD, but the spirituality was still not available for the average person.
Kabbalah Centres are Open For All Who Are Interested
Throughout history, the study of Kabbalah was confined to small groups of religious men, mostly Jewish rabbis, and other “holy men.” But in 1922, everything changed. RavAshtag, an elder in Kabbalah, founded the first Kabbalah Centre in Jerusalem, Israel.The opening of a Kabbalah Centre was epic because he opened the study of Kabbalah to anyone who was interested. Ashtag trained other instructors and elders in the spirituality, and in the 1950s, Rav and Karen Berg came to the Centre to study.The Bergs stayed for 10 years, and in 1965, they moved back to the U.S. and founded a Centre in NYC. It was the first in the U.S., and they began to translate ancient documents into English and other languages, so they could be studied.
Kabbalahists believe that joy is in every human being, but it needs to be revealed. Instructors teach students the principles of Kaballah so that the student is able to make better choices in their own lives.By 2016, there were five cities in the U.S. with Kabbalah Centres and 40 cities worldwide. The Centres hold classes for students, offers books and products for sale and holds events so the students can have fellowship. The Bergs teach volunteering in the community as an act of acquiring the giving spirit as well as helping the people in need. Karen Berg emphasizes this activity.The wisdom of Kabbalah is made available in the Kabbalah Centres, and the Centre in Los Angeles is the home for Kabbalah University, which is online.
