It is important we understand what Kabbalah is all about. The term “Kabbalah” refers to an ancient wisdom that explains how the entire universe and life operate or rather work. Literally, the term means, “to receive.” In other words, it can be defined as the study of how one can receive fulfillment in his or her life.
Most people across the world feel that they are not as fulfilled as they should. It is even a paradox that whenever they strive so hard to achieve some sense of fulfillment, the more it gets away from them. Fulfillment goes beyond being happy and probably experiencing some sense of wellbeing. It involves connecting to some form of energy and maintaining your connection to a true and long-lasting fulfillment.
According to the teachings of Kabbalah, all the branches of life including relationships, health, and careers, originate from the same root. Kabbalah teaches how to look at the world and connecting you to the kind of fulfillment you desire.
The Kabbalah Center is an international non-profit organization dedicated to giving people across all spheres of life the tools and wisdom that can be useful in improving their lives and removing chaos in the world.
