After the sweet heights of Pesach, we count the Omer—the 49 days between redemption from Egypt and the revelation at Mt. Sinai—an invitation to do the spiritual work that opens the pathways from humanity to Divinity (and back). Join Getzel Davis in a deepened exploration of the lower sefirot—the qualities of God, self, and world found in the mystical Kabbalah. Each week we will explore that week’s sefirah through biblical, rabbinic, and mystical texts. For each quality we will explore both the sefirah in its fully actualized state as well as its shadow manifestations. Over the seven weeks of the Omer, we will explore all seven ‘lower sefirot’ in depth and introduce the higher worlds as well. Open to all!
