Summary

In this first of ten classes, David explains how the the ten sefirot, the ten spiritual dimensions that Light must pass through before reaching our physical world function, how we can connect with them, and the unique features they posess. This week David explains how the level of Malchut functions and how we can fully connect to its positive attributes. The importance of learning about the Tree of Life is not so that we gain an intellectual understanding, but that we internalize this wisdom and increase our ability to connect to the Light.
