Everything is God: An Introduction to Nondual Judaism

at New York Open Center

New York

The principle of nonduality – that everything is One – is familiar to spiritual seekers from a variety of mystical paths. Kabbalah, Judaism’s mystical and esoteric tradition, also expresses this idea, in uniquely provocative and sometimes startling ways. This evening we’ll combine text study (from sources as diverse as Maimonides’ Guide to the Perplexed, the Zohar, and the Baal Shem Tov), contemplation and discussion to explore key Jewish teachings on nonduality. We will also offer comparative insights and explore how nonduality is actually lived– so please bring your own knowledge and experience (from any tradition) to add to the conversation, and be prepared for surprise: enlightenment is not what you think… and neither is God.
