THEME: “The Right Use of Will” (continued)
Our aim in this series of classes is to explore the right use of will. What is will? Is it imposing one’s own will? Having power over others? Or is it instead a will that takes into account other people’s needs and desires? How can our will cohabit with other people’s wills to create a more harmonious balance of power?
In Kabbalah the tree of life diagram shows us that will—often called Justice or Severity—must be tempered by loving compassion. This requires plunging into the heart where loving compassion resides. Or in other words, plunging into the subconscious.
Through a series of short inductions called Guided Exercises you will be taken through the four realms of existence, mineral, plant, animal, human, to explore what blocks your way and what can develop your path to the right use of will. Using techniques from the Kabbalah of Dreaming—the dreaming art of Jewish mystics—you will learn to balance left and right brains and experience how the will of severity and the will of the heart can dance together to create harmony and joy.
In each class, exercises written by Catherine are presented by the teacher, and each student is asked what (s)he saw after the exercise is done. Guidance is given individually to each student, depending on the necessity revealed in that student’s imagery. The exercises are powerful, revelatory, effective and easy to do. One of the advantages of this method is that very little mind-resistance is encountered, so the process is simple and quick.
