Dear Friends,

Whether you are new to Kabbalah or wise in its ways,  the opportunity to take part in this wonderful retreat with leading expert Daniel Matt is soon coming to a close.  The deadline for registration is less than one week away. Since completing the most comprehensively annotated multi-volume English translation of the Zohar, Matt is devoted to unpacking the teachings of mystical Judaism to an international following.           

In this retreat we'll learn how to bring these understandings and practices into our routine lives as well as how these might relate to other spiritual traditions.  Residential spaces in the beautiful Holy Spirit Retreat Center are limited and are filling up. 
Attending as a commuter is also an option.
