Derekh HaMelekh— “The Royal Road”—is a collection of Shabbat and holiday teachings by Reb Kalanymous Kalman Shapira, who was the “Rebbe of the Warsaw Ghetto” as well as a major spiritual leader before the war. These teachings are deeply informed by Jewish tradition, psychological insights and the Rebbe’s own spiritual search. The wisdom he shares is multi-faceted and stunningly contemporary. He sheds light on current paradigm-shift thinking, meditation and radical concepts of God.

In this course, Rabbis Andrea Cohen Kiener and Natan Margalit work together to share selections. Each session will include an introduction to the main ideas of the Rebbe as they emerge in that week’s selection, a close reading of portions of the selection and a time to interact together about applications, insights and questions garnered from the reading.

Sample topics include: Developing the Intuitive Mind, The Value of Wholeness, Transcending Opposites to Reach Unity, Leadership and Vulnerability, the Ladder of Prophecy and more.

Purchase of this course includes audio recordings of all 5 class sessions.
