I feel that this video (at least) has given me a starting point for that. I read the other reviews and they seemed quite critical as far as the specifics, however I think if you are coming from a place where you know next to nothing of jewish mysticism then this is as good a starting point as any.
I was entertained and satisfied with this video. Perhaps it is a "101" class (to some) but I think it did its job. It kept my attention and made me want to study a little further on the subject. They clearly state that you can spend a lifetime studying this material without fully understanding all of it, then why would this be a bad place to start? Since awareness of any spiritual knowledge is but one lesson leading into another, I would not be so critical of this particular DVD. For those of you who like this type of subject matter along with The History Channels support, then you should like this DVD. I recommend it.
The origin of kabbalah is Egyptian. Ancient Egypt had the same tree of life, and kabbalistic teachings way before the birth of Judaism. An Egyptian wisdom keeper mentioned that who wrote the old testament/bible were the followers of Aton in old Egypt, and they created the hebrew language.
Kabbalah is similar to any esoteric teachings such as in Hinduism, Gnoses, Taoist, Sufism....Even in Christianity you will find these teachings encoded in the New Testament.

I'm a big fan of history documentaries, but not when they do such a poor job of providing context and meaningful discussion of the topic. Read morePublished on February 9, 2014 by Colten
