  • Eternity - Mother Nature and Relationships
  • Splendor - Communication and Magic

Connect to the ten archetypes of the Tree of Life and foster spiritual, emotional, and material growth using comparative mysticism, guided meditations, and astrology. Now it is your turn to create miracles.

Omnicide as Theodicy and Theology
Jews have never been biblical literalists, so the Torah is not a theological problem because the Rabbis bracketed theology.  A uniform practice is what kept us a people for 1800 years of exile.  But in the wake of Darwinism and the Shoah, is there anything left to believe in?  Our sages and mystics, during those centuries of exile, created a rich literature that can serve as resources to articulating a God in whom Jews can believe.
