Lesson Highlights

  • Internal Light (Or Pnimi) and Surrounding Light (Or Makif)
  • Internal Light: a small amount of Light that the receiver should receive manifested in the purest Vessel of the receiver
  • Surrounding Light: the remaining Light that should be received that the Vessel cannot receive due to difference of form, the Desire to Recieve for the Self Alone remains in the receiver
  • The pain of the giver
  • What students do not receive, teachers prepare
  • The Ari, Rav Chaim Vital and Rav Ashlag: the process of revelation
  • Binding by Striking: Surrounding Light purifies the Vessel so it can handle more Light
  • Connecting to Or Makif: Jumping for leves befond us; How much of our work, study, and certainty is beyond us?
  • Two distinct ways to feel the Light of the Creator: 1. Receiving within the Vessel (Internal Light) 2. Receiving in the external aspects of the Vessel (Surrounding Light)
  • The Vessel only recieves in Bechina Dalet. Bechinah Alef, Bet, and Gimel are the cause of Bechina Dalet (the Fourth Phase)
  • Bechina Dalet is the internal part of the Vessel. The first 3 phases are the "walls of the Vessel"

About This Course

One of the most profound studies The Kabbalah Centre offers to our community, Ten Luminous Emanations is a study of the writings of master kabbalist Rav Ashlag that discuss the mysteries of life, the Creator and the cosmos. As Rav Berg explains, Ten Luminous Emanations is the software, that permits us to tap into what is already known out there in the universe that is structured, that knows no chaos. It is not the inability of the software or the hardware that may change our lives and enhance our lifestyles, but rather that if we could have the best software program and the best hardware. If I do not know how to press the buttons, the results will never be there. Join Michael Berg, Co-Director of The Kabbalah Centre, for this advanced study to elevate your consciousness and shift your perception of the world.
