Don't miss this opportunity to study with superb scholar and teacher of Kabbalah, Daniel Matt.

Dear Friends,

Chag Shavuot Sameach!

Have you ever wondered what meaning the complex and esoteric Jewish wisdom tradition can have for your own life?  How it can be unpacked and illuminated in a way that gives you a whole bunch of "aha moments"?  How it relates to other wisdom traditions about which you may know even more or are flirting with?

If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, then the retreat this coming weekend is for you.

It's a rare thing indeed when Daniel Matt, the expert teacher of Jewish mysticism, is in Southern California to conduct a retreat.  His on-line classes are wildly popular, but this coming weekend we have the privilege of studying with him in person in a beautiful, peaceful setting and on an intimate scale. And an opportunity to be guided in meditation made more powerful by the group setting.

So whether you are new to Kabbalah or wise in its ways, here's an opportunity to take part in this wonderful experience and have some of your questions answered.  But bear in mind that the deadline for registration is just a few days away.  

Residential spaces in the beautiful Holy Spirit Retreat Center are almost filled up.  However, attending as a commuter is still an option.  Delicious vegetarian meals are included in the registration price and dietary restrictions are accommodated.

The schedule and registration information is below.
