Lesson Description

The portion of Beresheet is the seed level of every Shabbat of the year. It is also the seed level or begining of the new year as well as the Five Books of Moses and contains tremendous energy. Join Karen as she reveals some of the secrets of Beresheet and reminds us that we cannot be on our spirtual path alone and that Light is only revealed through darkness.

About This Course

One of the major spiritual connections kabbalists make on the Sabbath is the reading of a weekly Bible portion. These consciousness lectures present lessons on each week's portion to elevate our consciousness and create awareness of the spiritual energy and gifts that are available through the reading of a Torah Scroll. With greater awareness and an awakened consciousness, we can connect to the Light revealed each week and use it as support in our ongoing spiritual work.
