A non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, Kabbalah Centre International offers courses on Kabbalistic and Zohar teachings. The courses are delivered both online and also in its regional and city-based centers and study groups across the world. Philip Berg and his wife Karen Berg were the brains behind the development of Kabbalah presentation.
The spiritual and education center is dedicated to delivering Kabbalah’s wisdom to the world. Kabbalah Centre International has been in existence since more than 80 years ago. However, its spiritual lineage goes way back to Rav Isaac Luria during the 16th century, to Rav Luria and Rav Shimon Yochai who discovered Zohar, the principle text of Kabbalah, more than 2000 years ago. Kabbalah does not uphold this wisdom as an academic discipline, but as a means through which one can create a better life. The spiritual teachings and practical tools have been made available to anyone who desires personal transformation and change. The center comprises of a multi-ethnic team of teachers from different nationalities who offer Kabbalistic studies and guidance to its global community of students.
Kabbalah is one of the world’s oldest bodies of spiritual wisdom. It contains long-hidden keys to the universe’s secrets and the many mysteries associated with the human heart and soul. Kabbalistic teachings provide explanations to the complex nature of the material and non-material universe, and the metaphysical and physical nature of humanity. This body of spiritual wisdom details how a person can maneuver through the vast terrain of life to get rid of every form of pain, chaos, and suffering.
The LA-based organization aims at making the study of the ancient Jewish tradition more universal. By studying it, practitioners gain knowledge on how to get hold of a higher consciousness capable of empowering them to enhance every aspect of their lives. It has a reputation for attracting celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, and Madonna.
The center has its presence in many locations in the United States and across the world. The only center in Missouri is located in St. Louis and was first opened in 2011. Towards the end of September 2016, the Clayton Branch, which had been closed to allow renovations, was reopened. The renovations were intended to separate the space into a classroom and a bookstore. There was a grand reopening event that introduced a beginner’s guide to the mystical tradition. Brief seminars were offered during the reopening on topics such as astrology and relationships with attendees benefiting from a 40 percent discount for bookstore purchases.
