Screen shot 2016-04-01 at 123903 PMCabalist Dainichi Lazuli will teach an Introduction to Kabbalah from 1 to 5 p.m., May 8, at the Center for Remembering and Sharing, 123 4th Avenue, between 12th and 13th Streets. Tickets are $40, and food and beverages will be served. People of all faiths are welcome.

Kabbalah involves a Jewish meditational practice that induces trancelike states thought to promote mental and emotional healing. Dainichi will explain how it influenced Christian mystics, enlightened thinkers and Renaissance history. The presentation will include a video documentary on kabbalah as a science, philosophy and way of life.

“This class will connect people to the mysteries of kabbalah and help them see its beauty and mission to connect mankind with God, both unraveling and decoding the Torah and our existence,” says Lazuli. Lazuli is presenting the class. “It will discuss the unanswered questions sought within churches or institutions and explain aspects of astrology, numerology, physics coexistence and quantum mechanics. Kabbalah teaches us how something as complex as language has purpose in understanding divinity.” Among the texts to be discussed are the Torah, the Bahir, the Sefer Yitzirah and the Holy Zohar. Dainichi will also provide exercises based on the teachings of 13th-century Spanish cabalist Abraham Abulafia.
