Exploring the Cosmic Tree of Life: Introduction to Kabbalah
Taught by Shoshana Fershtman Two sessions: March 1 and March 15. The word kabbalah derives from the Hebrew roots meaning “tradition” and “receiving.” While much of what we know about Judaism derives from its exoteric or mainstream aspects, kabbalah relates to the esoteric—the inner received experience of the Divine. Using a combination of text study and experiential learning, we will engage in a psychospiritual journey to explore a central symbol of kabbalah, the Cosmic Tree of Life as it relates to our own personal spiritual experience. Open to beginners and those with experience in kabbalistic study and meditation. Shoshana Fershtman, JD, PhD, is a psychologist in private practice in Santa Rosa, and in the analytic training program at the CG Jung Institute of San Francisco, and a core faculty member at the Depth Psychology Masters’ program at Sonoma State University. She has spent many years studying the Jewish mystical tradition and the re-emergence of the Sacred Feminine in Judaism. She is completing a book on reconnection with Judaism in the wake of collective trauma.
