Featuring: David Sanders, Founder and Melanie Gruenwald, Executive Director
“Our world is so challenging and we can’t and don’t want to tune it out, we have to really pay attention. So one of the things we try also develop…is looking at what are our shared experiences, what is it about the human narrative that challenges us to really work on ourselves,” eplains David about how we engage with the learning and practices of Kabbalah.
Their mission: Kabbalah Experience provides an open and inclusive learning community committed to encourage individual and spiritual growth through the study and application of Kabbalah’s insights into the parallels between physical and spiritual reality. Kabbalah Experience is a place where you begin to understand and appreciate the soul awareness that connects all of created existence and to apply that understanding in your daily life.
Kabbalah Experience reaches to a diverse audience of wisdom and spiritual seekers and educates them with unique teachings of Transformational Kabbalah. Students can access transformational kabbalah to realize their purpose in life, contribute to the well-being of family and friends, affect positive change in their communities, and ultimately, radiate peace to the world.
Their History: Founded in 2006 by Dr. David Sanders, Kabbalah Experience was born out of a love for teaching and studying Kabbalah. In the years since Kabbalah Experience was founded, more than 1300 students have experienced the life-changing power of David’s practical and empowering teachings. In 2019, Melanie Gruenwald became the Executive Director of Kabbalah Experience and led growth of the organization.
Kabbalah Experience offers 4 years of curriculum, and advanced courses for continuing students. The organization also offers a self-study video series for asynchronous learning.Transformative Kabbalah: For seekers of spiritual growth and knowledge who want to transcend limitations and realize practical benefits, Kabbalah Experience’s unique teachings of Transformative Kabbalah offer the opportunity to…experience life richly in the present moment, increase compassion and personal peace, bring positive change to your life and a troubled world
Their Why: We seek to shape our world into a more harmonious, egalitarian and peaceful planet. The Tree of Life, the central map of the Kabbalah teaching culminates in “manifestation” because spiritual practice and learning is best expressed when you walk your talk.
Gandhi’s quote “Be the change you want to see in the world” implies two important messages: First, don’t shirk from your responsibility to make the world better. As is stated in Jewish tradition: Do your part even if you can’t get it all done. Second: See the change that is needed in you to make the world better. As is stated in Kabbalah tradition: You are the project, not your projections.
We are ordinary people from diverse backgrounds dedicated to experiencing our amazing light and seeing clearly our challenging blind spots. We are all student-teachers (our teachers are life-long learners and our students share their wisdom and shape the curriculum) dedicating ourselves to a deepening awareness of the masks we wear and the stories we live in.
