The L.A. Kabbalah and Online Centre Slogan – Learn, Transform and Connect

Published / by GSM

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.


Human Rights Foundation Promotes Basic Rights For All Humans

Published / by GSM / 1 Comment on Human Rights Foundation Promotes Basic Rights For All Humans

In 2005 Thor Halvorssen founded the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) to promote the fundamental rights of every human being on Earth. He designed the nonprofit as a nonpartisan organization with the goal of transforming the restriction of human rights in countries that are not open and which actually oppress their citizens.

The HRF is an activist group that stands for the rights of all humans and the promotion of democracy, where any violations have been reported for anyone. Specifically, the Human Rights Foundation promotes all of the following:

Freedom of speech
Freedom of self-determination
Right to worship whatever and how ever
Freedom to associate
Right to buy and sell property
Freedom of travel to and from any country
Right to equal treatment by law enforcement and due process
Right to participate in government
Freedom from exile or arbitrary detainment
Freedom from torture and slavery
Freedom in matters of conscience without interference or coercion

The HRF actually began in the heart and mind of Thor Halvorssen because of his father, a reputable diplomat who was an ambassador. Thor’s father was illegally detained, beaten terribly, and tortured in 1993 by government forces of Venezuelan. Thor was strongly affected by this event and came to understand the kind of work required to make changes in oppressive countries, such as Venezuela. To get his father released to the combined efforts of many statesmen and stateswomen, the International Society for Human Rights, and Amnesty International.

The same repressive Venezuelan regime attempted to murder Thor Halvorssen’s own mother when she was attending a public gathering that was entirely peaceful. Local TV news broadcast the attack, live. A total of 12 people were wounded and 1 person was murdered. Thor’s mother was wounded. Others of Thor’s family have also been attacked in the past. Never willing to give in, Mr. Halvorssen is also a film producer who continues to stand for freedom for all the oppressed people of the world.
