The Kabbalah Centre is a nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles that is committed to teaching people spiritual principles that can improve their lives and change the way they see the world. Kabbalah Centre has been associated with Judaism, but the Kabbalah Centre emphasizes that people do not have to have a previous knowledge of Jewish and Hebrew writings in order to understand Kabbalah. The Centre also maintains the Kabbalah is to be seen as a supplement to religion, and that people of all spiritual backgrounds are welcomed to learn Kabbalah since the teachings are similar to the major world religions such as Judaism, Christianity and Buddhism.
The Kabbalah Centre teaches the five principles of Kabbalah, which are:
Sharing: This is the notion that in order to receive true fulfillment in life, sharing is a necessity. Kabbalah teaches that selfishness keeps us from our true purpose and reduces our chances of being able to impact people in a positive way.
Ego Balance: Kabbalah teaches that the ego is the part of human nature that encourages addiction and unhealthy behavior. The ego also prompts humans to be negative, angry irresponsible and closed off to ideas and concepts. Learning to balance the ego is integral to one’s overall well-being.
Spiritual Balance: There are spiritual laws that are in place in the universe and can not be changed. The law of cause and effect is emphasized in Kabbalah, and those who subscribe to the teachings are encouraged to remember that the type of energy one puts into the universe is the same energy that will be returned.
Unity: Every human being has the essence of God in him/her according to Kabbalah. The teachings also indicate that all humans are divinely connected.
Kabbalah teaches that humans realize their true selves when they step outside of their comfort zones and open their lives up to receive miracles.
