Lesson Description

According to the Kabbalists, prayer is a technology that allows us to draw Light; it is not simply a tool we use to request something we need. In this lesson, studying from the Gate of Meditations, we learn how prayer influences the metaphysical realm and the specific recommendations from the Ari, Rav Isaac Luria, on how to direct our consciousness during prayer.

About This Course

Rav Isaac Luria, who came to be known as the Ari because of his prodigious capacity for spiritual study and understanding, was a 16th-century master kabbalist who forever shifted the way Kabbalah was studied and taught. Through his teachings, we are able to understand the secrets of the Zohar, gaining a whole new understanding of Kabbalah. The Ari opened himself completely to the Light and, in doing so, merited the revelations of the deepest secrets of the universe. Join us as we explore a variety of topics from the teachings of the Ari, including mystical abilities, the power of desire, and secrets of reincarnation. This is an opportunity to study powerful revelations from one of the greatest kabbalists of all time, including his seminal works, the Gates of Meditation Parts I and II and the Gate of Mitzvot.
