About This Event
Special Offer: 1st Session Free. Pay only if you decide to continue.
Discover your true roots and identity through the Hebrew Letters of your name with Kabalistic views on Torah and the coming New Year of 5778. What does it mean for you to be in the “Here and Now” as a Jew, with insights from the teachings of Kabbalah. This is a rare opportunity to develop practices and expand consciousness via meditation, visualization and learning to explore our inner “Neshamah,” our inner essence.
Centuries before Freud and Jung, or Dr. Phil, the wise scholars of the Kabbalah served as the first healers of the soul. Their wisdom and insights can help us build ourselves up today as well.
Gilla Nissan, author of The Hebrew Alphabet: A Universal Guide with Signs and Wonders, brings the techniques of Gurdjieff together with the teachings of Rabbi Jonathan Omer-Man, through the insights of Jewish mystic wisdom, to lead us to a higher plane with meditation, visualization and guided imagery.
