The Kabbalah of Writing with Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Rabbi Rami Shapiro

May 11–13, 2012

Tuition $185 + 2 nights

There are three rules for writing as a spiritual practice: don’t write what you know; you can’t write what you don’t know; and, you must write. This workshop draws upon a variety of practices rooted in the Jewish mystical teachings of the Five Worlds (body, heart, mind, soul, and spirit)to cultivate writing as a spiritual practice. Using these tools, we will look at the stories that sustain our sense of self and perception of others. We will examine the Kabbalistic theory of the Five Worlds, expand this theory to our writing, and use our writing to shift from what Judaism calls mochin d’katnut (narrow mind) to mochin d’gadlut (spacious mind).
