Lesson Highlights

  • Searching ourselves within during the ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
  • Connecting to the three-column system through giving, receiving and restriction
  • Teshuva: infusing restriction into a past action for cleansing and transforming judgment to mercy
  • Receiving additional support of Binah consciousness during the ten days of judgment
  • Elevating to Binah consciousness on Yom Kippur, a realm of pure mercy without the Opponent
  • Five restrictions on Yom Kippur for disassociating ourselves with our body consciousness: no eating and drinking, no wearing leather shoes, no bathing, no anointing oils, and no sex
  • Enjoying the gift of our immersion in Binah
  • The main connections of Yom Kippur - Immersing in the mikveh of Binah:
    • Five spiritual meals: Fulfilling our soul
    • Kol Nidre: a powerful cleansing opportunity
    • Vidui: confessing without the Opponent hearing us
    • Avodah: the cleansing work of the High Priest
    • Neila: locking away the Opponent for the year
  • Opening the door of transformation for others

Lesson Description

In this lesson, Eitan shows us how we can spend the entire day of Yom Kippur without the Opponent in the realm of Binah, a metaphysical realm of pure mercy for cleansing our past and locking the Opponent from our future.
