Lesson Highlights

  • Receiving the support from every Shabbat of the past 12 months
  • The breaking of our old Vessels prior to Pesach
  • The radical path of Kabbalah
  • Story from Prophets, the book of 1 Samuel, Chapter 30: the lowest point in King David's life
  • Rebuilding a new, powerful Vessel with strength and certainty
  • Zivug, the coming together of two forces in the Upper Worlds, can happen in two ways:
    • sustaining the reality of this world
    • creating new realities
  • Awakening love for others

Lesson Description

The kabbalists teach that on Shabbat Hagadol, the Great Shabbat, we receive all of the blessings and support from the Shabbatot of the past 12 months. Paradoxically however, many of us are facing challenges during this time. Join Michael as he explains how the breaking of our old Vessel—which often comes about through external challenges—can assist us in receiving a completely new, powerful, limitless Vessel during Pesach.

About This Course

One of the most spiritually damaging acts has become all too familiar – all forms of ‘evil speech.’ Our words carry immense power, yet they manifest in ways we cannot see. When we refrain from speaking or listening to evil speech, we in turn protect ourselves, the person being spoken about and those hearing it. This week, recognize when you may be lured into evil speech and utilize the energy available to restrict any involvement.
