The Tree of Life: Making Kabbalistic Diagrams (Spring 2021)

Wednesday, May 26, 2021 thru Wednesday, June 16, 2021
6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
See session list below for specific session times and locations.
Educator: Yosef Rosen, Ph.D.

Kabbalah asks its readers to continuously diagram the 10 Divine energies (“The Sefirot”) that constitute the cosmos. While the Tree of Life is the most famous of these diagrams, Kabbalah is full of other models of sacred geometry—full of circles, spirals, lines, and letters. Playing upon the richness and fluidity of these diagrams, Kabbalah urges each of us to make our own map of divinity, informed both by Kabbalah’s world-map and one’s own creativity.

This four-part workshop is an invitation to diagram your own spirituality/theology using kabbalistic models and maps. In our opening session, we will explore the historical evolution of sefirot diagrams, from simple drawings found in medieval manuscripts to a ten-foot long, nineteenth-century map of the kabbalistic worlds. In subsequent sessions, each participant will identify and name their own 10 sefirot, and then design a diagram (using an array of artistic media) that maps the dynamics and interactions between those sefirot.
