Lesson Highlights

  • Recognizing all our internal sorrows, darkness and pain, and turning them around to draw great light
  • On Tisha B'Av we are called to transform all negativity into goodness, joy and happiness while connecting to the end of the correction
  • During the reading of the Megillah, our job is to search for our internal darkness, and request the assistance of Avraham Avinu to help us transform it into light
  • Connecting to the Tree of Life within ourselves to draw the final redemption 
  • On Tisha B'Av, through mercy and the assistance of the Light of Creator, Avraham Avinu is helping us restore the internal and collective destruction we have caused 

Lesson Description

On the night of the 9th of Av, also known as Tisha B'Av, Michael Berg shares practical kabbalistic wisdom to help us understand the work that is needed from each one of us on this most powerful day.

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.
