Open Learning Course

Kabbalistic Psychology

Examine and evaluate psychological insights found within the corpus of kabbalistic texts.

Start date: February 2022. Length of study: 10 weeks. Tuition: £400

Examine and evaluate psychological insights found within the corpus of kabbalistic texts. Such insights may be seen to comprise two related aspects: First, the challenge to understanding the nature of mind and, second, the development of techniques and practices directed at attaining a transformed level of being.

We examine what may be best understood as a form of esoteric psychology through which kabbalists grasped the inner, generally unconscious, determinants of thought, and practised techniques through which they participated in what they conceived as the intra-divine reality.
