Western Occult Kabbalah meets Jewish Kabbalah
Two Traditions in Dialogue
Daniel Jonas meets Christina Oakley Harrington
Treadwell’s Bookshop, Covent Garden
Thursday 29 May 2008
7.15 for 7.30 pm start
Christina Oakley Harrington meets Daniel Jonas for a discussion/interview evening: Western Occult Kabbalah meets Jewish Kabbalah. The two traditions compare notes on a range of topics – working with the spheres on the tree of life; some issues concerning gematria; correspondences; the two pillars; and what does a kabbalist in each tradition actually do, in terms of activities and meditations. It’s an almost unique chance for non-Jewish Pagans and occultists to learn, from the source, about this path as followed by Orthodox and other traditional Jews, in a language more or less familiar to them. Christina and Daniel promise friendly banter, lots of time for audience questions, a few amusing anecdotes from their respective kabbalistic communities, and lots of thought-provoking information.
Daniel Jonas is not only a practising student of traditional kabbalah, but he is also a Jewish interfaith facilitator, who has (almost uniquely) been involved in Jewish-Pagan interfaith work. Bring an open mind and lots of questions.
