Shamanic Kabbalah is a very ancient body of Jewish wisdom that has been transmitted mostly orally for close to four thousand years. Based largely upon a non-linear way of thinking and experiencing, Jewish shamanism offers alternative perspectives on the meaning of life, the paradox of God and evil, the mystique of being human, the intimate relationship of soul with body, and the sanctity and interconnectedness of the earth and all her creatures. Employing the sacred tools of ancient texts, soul-stirring chants, shamanic journeying, trance-inducing movement, and guided imagery, Miriam and Gershon will marinate us in the lesser-promulgated ancient teachings of the Kabbalah that defy conventional religious thinking and challenge us toward heightened consciousness and inner-healing.

Ancient Jewish mystery wisdom considered illness a major opportunity for personal life shifting and unfolding. Healing is not about fixing but about directing the flow of the ailment toward the restoration of balance in the dynamics between soul and body. Rituals include prayers and incantations that called upon forces active in the spirit realms, various plants, incense smoke, the ram’s horn, planetary influences, and stones. Some ceremonies also involve drawing a circle on the earth with specific mystical symbols, and many such rites require chanting and drumming. Often, the purpose of these rites is to clear the body’s own channels of impediments and resistance to enable the smooth flow of the life force within each of us. During this rare opportunity to explore the lesser-promulgated body of Jewish tradition, Rabbis Miriam Maron and Gershon Winkler will familiarize participants with ancient and medieval Aramaic and Hebraic source texts as well as oral traditions from which this long-neglected body of wisdom originates. These two mavericks of contemporary Judaism will also guide us through practica of ceremony, guided imagery, chant, and movement toward experiencing these teachings and drawing them deeper within ourselves, beyond the intellect, and into actual practice. The program includes studies in realms of the Jewish mystery wisdom about animal, tree and stone spirits, totems, the four winds (or four directions), and shamanic journeying – Jewish-style.


Rabbi Miriam’s teachings and chants are spirit medicine. They take me up into mysterious oceans of time and space. They weave me through infinity. They connect me to the oneness of creation. In a word, they are holy. Or as we say in Choctaw lingo: ho’lito’pa!” -- David Carson, author of Crossing into Medicine Country, and co-author of Medicine Cards: The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals, and of Oracle 2013

“With wit and wisdom, Rabbi Gershon renders user-friendly the more cryptic teachings of lesser-known Kabbalistic source texts and oral traditions in order to inspire and inform our lives.” —Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Spontaneous Healing and Eating Well for Optimum Health

MIRIAM TO TEACH AND PERFORM SPECIAL CONCERT IN VENTURA, CALIFORNIA"

"Wandering in the Now:"
A Special Pre-Passover Event of Learning, Music, and Story with
Miriam Maron and Gershon Winkler

Thursday evening March 25, 2010 at 6:30 PM
At Temple Beth Torah, 7620 Foothills Road, Ventura, CA

Passover is not so much a celebration of the Jewish exodus from Egyptian bondage some 3300 years ago as it is a commemoration of the most crucial phase in the evolution of the Jewish people: the subsequent forty-year walkabout in the desert. So vital is the story of the desert trek that it occupies 75% of the narrative of the Torah, the most important body of sacred wisdom for the Jewish people. More space is allotted for the account of the ancient Israelites being led through that vast barren wilderness than for the numerous miraculous feats performed on their behalf in preparation for their redemption from slavery. Obviously, what appears as a more important story and lesson, wrote the famous Jewish philosopher Rabbi Martin Buber, “is not the history of the exodus, but the history of the wandering in the desert” (Biblical Leadership, published in Israel and the World: Essays in a Time of Crisis [Schocken:1948], p. 125).

RABBI GERSHON WINKLER'S INTENSIVE "SEFER YETZIRAH SERIES" IN BERKELEY CONTINUES... FEBRUARY 21-22
Sponsored by Wisdom-Heart Community and JACTS A bold venture into one of the oldest and most cryptic codes of ancient Jewish mystery wisdom. Sefer Yetzirah is the earliest known written source for what later became known as the Kabbalah. It is replete with aboriginal Jewish knowledge around sorcery, angelic forces, earth spirits, astrology, numerology, the four directions, and the mysteries of Creation. Believed to originate in the early mystery schools of Enoch, Shem (Malkizedek), Ey'ver, and Abraham (5,000-4,000 B.C.E.), this cryptic body of cosmic wisdom has puzzled sages for millennia. Rabbi Winkler will take us on a user-friendly journey across the length and breadth of Megilat Yetzirah, as it was originally called, and inspire us in his unique style with the life lessons and mind-expanding mysteries that make this ancient text so alluring as well as elusive. Schedule for 5769 (2009): Saturday Night General Mystery Shmooze - 7 to 9 pm Sunday Workshop on Sefer Yetzirah - 10:30 am to 5:30 pm with ample lunch break Dates: February 21 - 22, 2009, At the Unitarian Fellowship, 1606 Bonita (at Cedar), Berkeley, CA 94709 Cost: Saturday Night Shmooze: $20 (more if you can, less if you can't) Sunday Workshop: $75 per class (more if you can, less if you can't) (No one turned away for lack of funds.)

Miriam will be presenting at the Integral Spiritual Experience Event December 29, 2009 – January 3, 2010, at the Asilomar Conference Center In Pacific Grove, California

This new, groundbreaking annual gathering will be the flagship event for the Integral community worldwide. The Integral Spiritual Experience will be co-led by cutting-edge lineage holders from virtually all the major traditions. Our goal is to meet our core responsibility and obligation as lineage holders at this pivotal point in the grand adventure of Spirit. If Spirit is to evolve, we must address the great evolutionary questions facing us, and do so with humility and creative audacity. This will be year one in a five-year cycle for this prestigious event. Each year we will address - through a different prism - one of the ultimate issues of Spirit facing the next generation. In the first year we will be looking at these questions through the prism of the Unique Self. We will inquire deeply into the spiritual dimension of the Unique Self, its relationship to Non-dual realization, and the role Unique Self might play in the unfolding of a World Spirituality in the 21st century. The event will be held at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, CA. Asilomar is a tranquil ocean- front retreat center cradled by forests and white sand beaches, nestled along the shoreline of California's famed Monterrey Peninsula. The first two days will be a gathering of Integral teachers and the leadership cadre of the International Evolutionary Spirituality and Integral communities. The second and central component of the event will be the Integral Spiritual Experience itself, which will begin on Thursday evening the 31st with an Integral New Year's Eve party and will conclude Sunday afternoon, January 3rd, 2010 at three pm.
