The Torah, Part 2: Wisdom of the World Religions Sacred Texts

08/26/2021 06:30 PM - 08:30 PM PT

Description

          
Join Rabbi Ted Falcon for two sessions exploring surprisingly clear spiritual teachings, often obscured by inaccurate translations of the Hebrew, that can support our own Journey of Awakening in profound ways.
 
Rabbi Ted will bring the original Hebrew text alive focusing on:
 
  • The Secrets of Incarnation: The Creation of Humankind Revisited
    • An examination of how our previous beliefs keep us from actually being able to see that which is right in front of us. Learn how the basic Creation Myth of human beings provides insight into the very nature of our being.
  • The Basic Call to the Spiritual Journey
    • Abraham is the first to be “called” in which is actually the prototype of all authentic spiritual callings. The consequence is the ability to be a blessing to all of humankind.
  • Awakening to One
    • Jacob’s Dream provides the grounding for a spiritual awakening available to us all. This awakening transforms our experience of who we are.​​
  • The Exodus from Enslavement to our Separate Self
    • Discover why the Exodus story has served to support deeper freedom for thousands of years. This is the story of our own Journey.
  • The Radical Nature of Revelation
    • The biblical story of Revelation at Mount Sinai teaches us the nature of all authentic Revelation moments. The deeper meaning of what came to be called “The Ten Commandments” provides the grounding for our own Way.​​​​​
  • The Basic Hebrew Meditation
    • Rabbi Ted shares the central “mantra” of the Hebrew Wisdom tradition that has provided spiritual support for thousands of years.
 
In this radical exploration of ancient spiritual teaching, we are invited to celebrate the essential nature of our Being, and to awaken more fully on our own Journey of Awakening.
