History of the Kabbalah Center
Different scholars have come up with various meanings as to what Kabbalah interprets to. Kabbalah can thus be defined as an ancient wisdom that depicts the correlation of the universe and life work. It can be termed as the study of how one can receive fulfillment and their calling in our day to day lives. Kabbalah teachings have passed over generations since it began. It was first published 5000 years ago in a written record known as the Book of Formation. However 2000 years later, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai wrote the main body of the Kabbalah teachings and principles in a book called The Zohar. The Zohar discusses the Five Books of Moses or the Old Testament ancient scriptures. The book attempts to explain how the universe functions in a spiritual manner.
For centuries, only the scholars and married Jewish men past 40 years could access the Kabbalistic teaching. Any other person was forbidden from the Kabbalistic teachings. However, the tradition eroded in 1969 when Rav Phillip Berg became the first ever Director of the Kabbalah Centre. Phillip Berg together with his wife Karen made the Kabbalistic teachings available to everyone regardless of the race, gender or religious affiliation. It was not easy to spread Kabbalistic teachings to the whole world since they were reserved for the scholars and Jewish men with over forty years. Nonetheless, the Kabbalah Centre grew from a small institution in Israel to an international organization known today.
The headquarters of the Kabbalah Centre International is located in Los Angeles, California. It is a non-profit organization that offers the ancient teachings of the Zohar online and through city-based centers and study groups. The Kabbalah Centre does not contradict its teachings with religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam or Buddhism but serves as a supplement to them.
The Kabbalah Centre provides a platform for scholars and students around the world to grow spiritually, exchange different philosophies, and correlate with like-minded people. Kabbalah’s objective is to provide knowledge that assists its members improve their livelihood and sustain peace and tranquility in the universe. Furthermore, it provides digital and online learning platforms where people can interact.
Bismark has been affected by a lifestyle that has often been affected by the childhood he spent living in the Philippines learning how to be a monk, which had a great effect on his life. For me the business leader brings his training as a monk into every aspect of his own business life with a large level of respect given to each and every employee of QI, no matter what their position or length of service with the company.
