Kabbalah is the study of the ancient wisdom that has existed for thousands of years. It is the study of the universe, how it began and how it relates to people. The Kabbalah Centres are non-profit organizations that teach the principles and spiritual tools of Kabbalah, so students can learn to use them to make their life better.
The first Kabbalah Centre was founded in 1922 in Israel, and up until then, Kabbalah was only studied by rabbis and high priests. When Rav Ashtag opened the doors of the Centre, he also opened the doors for anyone to study it. The Los Angeles Kabbalah Centre was established in the 1980s has become the international Centre.
Today, in 2017, there are Kabbalah Centres in over 40 cities around the globe, and the largest one is on the internet. Rav and Karen Berg originally brought Kabbalah to the United States in the 1960s after studying in Israel under sage Kabbalahists for over a decade.
The New York Centre was the first Centre in the country. San Francisco was the next location, and then the Bergs established the LA Kabbalah Centre. Karen Berg and her children are leaders of Kabbalah in the United States, and they teach online.
Many celebrities attend the L.A. Centre such as Paris Hilton, Madonna, and Brittany Spears. They agree that when they are regularly attending the Centre, their superstar lives are much easier to live, and 80 percent of their stress and chaos is eliminated.
The slogan for the centers is Learn, Transform and Connect, so interested people who find the Kabbalah Centre online are aware that they can learn online and when they are ready, they can connect at a brick and mortar Centre. The Centres hold classes and meditations, dinners and participate in volunteer events. Conferences and events are held worldwide.
