New Content for 2019 — Go Deeper into your Kabbalah Studies

Dear Friends,

Whether you are new to Kabbalah or wise in its ways, don't miss this wonderful retreat with leading expert Daniel Matt.  Since providing the world with the most comprehensively annotated multi-volumed English translation of the Zohar, Matt is devoted to unpacking the teachings of mystical Judaism to an ever-growing following.           

In this retreat we will be learning how to bring these understandings and practices into our routine lives and even how these might relate to other spiritual traditions.  Residential spaces in the beautiful Holy Spirit Retreat Center are limited and are filling up.
