PYC4237 Kabbalah and Psychology

Course Description

Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism) offers profound psycho-spiritual insights into individual and social consciousness, action and development. In this seminar, we examine key Jewish mystical ideas and practices and discuss their relevance to contemporary psychology and spirituality. We explore the Kabbalists’ experience of an androgynous divinity, theft mapping of God’s creative androgynous powers onto human beings, and their evolutionary view of the unfolding self and cosmos. We also experience some of their transformative and healing practices: prayers, blessings, rituals, songs, chants, meditation. Comparisons are made with other spiritual traditions. No knowledge of Judaism is needed.
