Lesson Highlights

  • Awakening unity: we need every person who is participating in the connections
  • The assistance of the Rav
  • Breaking up the Opponent's plans for judgment in the coming year by entering our plans first with the prayers, shofar and torah readings of Rosh Hashanah
  • The year of tisha: having the consciousness of ending pain, suffering and death in the world

Lesson Description

On the first day of Rosh Hashanah, we direct our spiritual work towards larger, global chaos. In this consciousness lecture presented before the Torah reading on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Michael shares and expands upon teachings of Rav Berg about howe we can use the prayers, shofar and torah reading of Rosh Hashanah to break up the Opponent's plans for judgment in the year ahead and the importance of having a consciousness that we can bring an end to pain, suffering and death in the world.

This lecture was originally presented during the Rosh Hashanah 2014 International Event in San Diego California from September 24–27, 2014.

About This Course

On Rosh Hashanah, The Kabbalah Centre's global community unites with the purpose of creating a year that brings us closer to our potential. The first 21 days in the month of Libra help us remove the space between who we are now and who we are meant to be. Rav Berg said, “By taking certain actions on Rosh Hashanah, and using specific tools, we can discard from our lives all disruptions, yielding a change for the better in the New Year’s script. Without these tools we would be subject to the verdict that is directly correlated with our past deeds”. Rosh Hashanah is the first important step along the path of these powerful days. These lectures and meditations by Karen and Michael Berg awaken our consciousness as we use the tools of Rosh Hashanah to begin the process of rising up to become our best selves individually and collectively in the year ahead. These lectures were presented at the Rosh Hashanah 2014 International Event held in San Diego, California on September 24 - 27, 2014.
