In the ancient Hebrew tradition, discovering hidden relationships between words, letters, and sounds serves to shift our consciousness into states of greater presence and expansion. In this session, we will explore the esoteric relationship between form and formlessness embedded within the Shema, an ancient mystical formula and sacred-sound practice designed to awaken our consciousness into an embodied state of nondual realization and universal love. In this process, the relationship between the dual and the nondual is clarified: the formless is recognized as the form, the transcendent as the immanent, the unmanifest as the manifest, the spiritual as the material.
