At the mention of the name Kabbalah, there are many people that think about Jewish Voodoo while other think about some form of tarot card reading and other forms of magic. However, the people that truly understand this discipline know that it has very little to do with the above named misconceptions. In an attempt to demystify wisdom practice, there are people who are opening up centers in California, Europe and other locations to try and teach more people about the practice.
The interesting thing about the practice is that up to a few years ago, the Kabbalah teachings were believed to be so complicated that they were only taught to people above 40 years in age. However, things are opening up a little and more people are getting a chance to learn. This practice has been around for thousands of years, and it is thought to be the blue print on which most of the modern religions created.
The main aim of the teachings of kabbalah is to offer an explanation for some if not all of the phenomena that are part of the metaphysical world. The teachings attempt to do this by showing the connection between the natural world and the realms that humans cannot understand. While it is true that some supernatural concepts are part of the teachings, magic is not the mainstay of the practice. True, there are stories that tell of events that could look magical, such as the tale of the golem that created a human by molding mud and breathing life into it. However, this is not the main idea of the practice.
Even though the teachings of Kabbalah are taught by Rabbis and are part of many other religions, the practice in itself is not a religion. The problem has come in because people have been twisting the teachings to fit their religious convictions. The fact that Hollywood culture took up the practice and started selling it as some form of magic has also not helped a lot. However, the establishment of the centers is being seen as on step in the right direction, especially in seeing to it that the misunderstood bits are clarified to learn more: http://frenchtribune.com/teneur/25354-finding-deeper-connections-through-kabbalah-centre click here.
