Description: 

How can tales written 3000 years ago in a faraway place still influence our ecology, politics, and sexuality?

How can we utilize these epic stories to improve our life?

What is it about these stories that can heal or kill?

 

For centuries the bible has been kidnapped by individuals who used it to control populations. It’s time to reclaim these humorous, mischievous, and enlightening stories and apply them to our own lives.

We will shed light on the lessons these timeless stories teach us:

 

•  Adam & Eve – How an LSD trip isn’t the same as enlightenment.

•  Jacob & the Art of Lying – Dysfunctional families and Lucha Libre.

•  David’s Forbidden Loves – Denim Jeans and how your imperfections are what make you perfect.

•  Jesus’ Soul Mates – How selfless sacrifice can change the world.

 

The workshop includes storytelling, PowerPoint presentations of biblical art, as well as entertaining activities such as bible charades, reenactments of biblical scenes, and guided meditations using the Hebrew alphabet.

 

The stories of the bible are woven around the names of heroes and heroines and in this workshop, you will discover the symbolism and myth behind your own name.

 

What is your epic story?

 

About the speaker, Gahl Sasson

Gahl Sasson makes Kabbalah, astrology and psychology engaging, illuminating, and fun. The way he sees Kabbalah is accessible to anyone from any faith and background. The innovative examples that he conjures up to illustrate these high concepts spurs his audience to laugh and then declare, Aha. Most of all, Gahl tells stories, relating a vast array of compelling myths from traditions across the globe to delineate the workings of the inner world. His book, A Wish Can Change Your Life, (published by Simon & Schuster and co-written with Steve Weinstein), blends wisdom and metaphors from cultures across history and the entire world into an innovative blueprint for personal transformation and material enrichment. Thousands have enthusiastically embraced his fresh and stimulating approach to spirituality in lectures and workshops in the United States, Mexico, and Israel.

A multi-talented creative force, Gahl also works as a performer, musician and composer, and he is one of a few westerners to have mastered the hauntingly beautiful art of throat singing. As part of all his lectures, Gahl guides his audience on a meditation using ancient Hebrew chants sung with overtones that induce a state of receptivity and calm in everyone in the room. A charismatic composer of life, Gahl uses myths and religious philosophies as if they were tones and melodies to create an upbeat and beguiling environment in which people are able to unlock the poignant meaning vibrating amid the stories of their lives.
