Transformation of the God Image with Rabbi Tirzah Firestone
August 10–13, 2008
This program has been cancelled.
Empowered by Father Abraham’s legacy of iconoclasm, you are invited to break with antiquated ideologies about God and move freely toward an experience of the Living God. Drawing from Zohar, Chasidic Masters and the work of Carl Jung, we will study the evolving image of God in our own psyches and as expressed by the ancient Jewish tradition. Sacred study and active imagination combine to help us understand how the divine “urge to wholeness” is calling us forward in our lives and in the life of our struggling planet.
Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, MA, is an author, therapist, and spiritual teacher. Her fascination with the common boundary shared by Kabbalah (Jewish mystical teachings) and Depth (Jungian) Psychology provides a focus for her teachings, which center on the integration of ancient mystical wisdom into contemporary life. Her publications include With Roots in Heaven: One Woman’s Passionate Journey into the Heart of Her Faith, The Receiving: Reclaiming Jewish Women’s Wisdom, and The Woman’s Kabbalah: Ecstatic Jewish Practices for Women.
