Steven J. Gold, BA Antioch College, Philosophy and Religion; JD Emory Law School, is the founder/director of Torah-Veda (formerly the Yoga and Judaism Center) based in cyberspace. He has been a student, practitioner and teacher of spiritual self-realization and its related philosophy and psychology for many years. Over the past forty years, he has read or studied with many eastern and western teachers of spirituality. He is an initiate and practitioner in the Tradition of the Himalayan Masters, as propagated in the West by the late Sri Swami Rama of the Himalayas. This broad-based tradition includes the classical Ashtanga Yoga/Raja Yoga and meditation systems of Patanjali and the Advaita Vedanta systems and philosophy of Shankara. He is a graduate of the Karin Kabalah Center course on Kabalah: A Process of Awakening, and has continued a course of self-study of Torah and mystical Judaism in light of yoga for several years. He has studied with Zev ben Shimon Halevi and the following rabbis: Joseph Gelberman, Gedalia Fleer, Eliyahu Schusterman, Arthur Waskow, Phyliss Berman, Marcia Prager, Gershon Winkler, Yoel Glick, and Mitch Cohen. The mission of Torah-Veda is to provide an avenue for the awakening, nurturance and expression of spirituality with a focus on the nondual mystical traditions of Torah/Kabalah and Veda/Vedanta. We seek the common threads that exist between these and various other spiritual and mystical traditions, exploring the possibilities for a new synthesis relevant to the spiritual needs of today.
