LECTURE BRUNCH: kaballah and meditation

by Yaacov Lefcoe – Sunday 18/9 at 12.00pm

Personality changes through meditation: A psychological account.

This presentation provides an overview of personality changes occurring in the course of serious and sustained meditative practice, as described in psychologically sophisticated meditative manuals of Hasidic-Kabbalistic mysticism. A stage model for these changes will be presented and explored in terms accesible to the contemporary psychology of meditation, and psychological understandings of the God relationship. No previous exposure to Hasidic mysticism or contemporary psychology is assumed.
