Seeking Shulman

On 1/9/12 at 7 pm EST, I will have the honor of conducting a Tiferet Talk interview with Jinen Jason Shulman about consciousness; the nature of existence; and healing the mind, body, and spirit. Shulman is the founder of both Enlightenment Online and A Society of Souls training in Integrated Kabbalistic Healing, IM/personal Movement and the Work of Return. Shulman, who has been authorized to teach the Dharma as well, is on the faculties of the New York Open Center, the Esalen Institute, and the Omega Institute. He's also a member of the Professional Advisory Board of the Center for Spirituality and Psychotherapy of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies. Shulman is the author of The Instruction Manual for Receiving God and Kabbalistic Healing: a Path to an Awakened Soul.

A true seeker and an expert in many fields, Shulman also writes poetry, composes music, paints, and studies physics. He has released three CDs: The Great Transparency, Unlock My Heart, and Buddha-Cloud. To hear "Wisdom Way," one of Shulman's unreleased songs, which can only be heard on the Enlightenment Online WEB site, click here: 

Jason's teachings help students accept imperfection and restore their egos to a healthy state through honesty, acceptance, and awakening. To listen to some of Jason's lectures, click here:

Until Monday, I will leave you with a few "seed passages" from Shulman's The Instruction Manual for Receiving God:

"We need only embrace ourselves in conscious awareness, with deep knowledge and without judgment, to feel God" (Shulman 16).

"Being with God is a nondual state. This means it can never be achieved by choosing only one side of reality in reaction to a less preferred condition or state" (Shulman 56).

"The ego likes to think it can achieve a state called 'enlightenment,' and then its work will be finished. But 'awakened' just means you'd better roll up your sleeves and pay attention, because life continues to happen" (Shulman 70).
