One-Day Workshop

Centering Prayer and the Tree of Life


Kess Frey, Lecturer & Author

St Joseph Catholic Church
600 S. Jupiter Rd
Richardson, Texas  75081

The Qabalistic Tree of Life comes to us from “the secret wisdom of Israel” and was known to Jesus and the Old Testament prophets.  This mystical Tree is a map of the soul, God’s Creation, and our spiritual journey of return to God.  The Tree consists of the ten Holy Spheres of emanation and activity of the Divine Consciousness, and an invisible nondual Sphere that corresponds to the inner way of non-conceptual contemplation into which Centering Prayer leads us.

Registration begins in December, 2017.
