The knowledge embedded in the Kabbalah, like the works of the Theosophical Society are not simple concepts to grasp. Attendees will review the three major forms of the Kabbalah: The Jewish Kabbalah, The Christian Cabalah, and the most commonly referenced, The Hermetic Qabalah. Ted will introduce the attributes of each of the three forms as he provides participants the opportunity to develop an understanding of the similarities between the Kabbalah, its relationship the Tarot and the works of the Theosophical Society.
We often come up with references to the Kabbalah in our studies of Theosophy. Attend this presentation to examine the similarities to the works of H.P. Blavatsky and other significant Theosophical scholar's teachings involving this important knowledge. Additionally, participants will have an opportunity to discover how the Kabbalah was an influence on several of the principal contributors to the esoteric philosophical concepts of the Theosophical Society.
