History of the Kabbalah Centre

Studying the Kabbalah?
When an ordinary person studies the teachings of Kabbalah, he opens his mind to new knowledge that was originally hidden from him. The knowledge will remain hidden until the student acquires the sixth sense. We all have the ability to develop this sixth sense, for this reason, Kabbalah instills its teachings of the structure of the upper, spiritual world in us.
At the time when an individual is exposed to Kabbalistic teachings, he may not understand a thing. However, if he opens his mind to the higher knowledge, he will evoke what is called the Surrounding Light. The Surrounding Light corrects the individual and ultimately shows him his spiritual reality.
