Lesson Highlights

  • The destruction of the Temples in Jerusalem
  • The 9th of Av is a day controlled by the Opponent
  • A day of extremes: a day of darkness and the seed level of removing pain, suffering and death from the world
  • The shell of sadness that surrounds gifts: feeling the pain and suffering of others to connect with the Light hidden within the 9th of Av
  • "Tremendous, tremendous joy:" breaking through difficulties
  • Taking advantage of the difficult times

Lesson Description

The 9th of Av is a day of extremes. While it is a day that belongs to the Opponent, and is known for the negativity and destruction that has taken place on this day throughout history, it is also a day of joy and as Michael reveals, a day of connecting to the seed level of removing pain, suffering and death from our world.

About This Course

The Ninth of Av is the one day of the year when the negative force kabbalists call the Opponent rules for an entire 24 hour period. The Opponent is not a demon or devil, but a negative force of consciousness whose sole nature is receiving, chaos and selfishness. Many chaotic events have occurred on this day throughout history, but through prayer, reading the biblical scroll of Lamentations and additional kabbalistic tools, we can uproot this force of negativity and transform it to positivity.

On the Ninth of Av, 2020, Karen Berg passed on from this world. For speeches and celebrations of Karen Berg’s Day of Elevation, please click here.
