Lesson Highlights

  • Five essences in each world: 
    • Light: the purest form of energy, pure essence
    • Soul: a carving of the Light creating a unique individual
    • Body: the soul is made manifest, held onto, bound to the physical world
    • Clothing: the ability to manifest our soul in this world
    • Chamber: a place for us to manifest our essence
  • Light, soul and body are inseparable
  • Clothing and chamber are viewed as separate
  • The space between the body and clothing is where klipot exists
  • Strength of levush: diminishing for the sake of revealing wisdom
  • Tzimtzum Bet: 
    • the second constriction of Light
    • Occurring in the realms of Netzach, Hod and Yesod in the world of Adam Kadmon.
  • Two Lights: 
    • Akudim: unrestricted Light
    • Nekudim: revealed after Tzimtzum Bet
  • Secret of judgment and mercy

Lesson Description

In this lesson, Michael reveals understandings of the Ari and Rav Ashlag on the concept of Tzimtzum Bet, the second constriction of Light in the process of creation, and how it can assist us in earning Light for ourselves and the world.

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.
