    The fourth human temperament is earth. Earth reflects the grounded, down to earth personality type. Earth is the foundation of life -- the solid, unwavering bedrock that provides the security and trust upon which all life thrives. A tree's growth and expansion is dependent on it being firmly rooted in the ground. Like Your home and family, especially in your early, formative years serves as your unshakable nest, protecting and nurturing you in its unconditional love and  embrace. 



    These qualities also have their challenges. The earthy personality can at times be too grounded, too predictable -- lacking imagination and spirit, vibrancy and spontaneity of truly living life to its utmost. Or too materialistic -- consumed with survival, while losing sight of the sublime heaven and beyond. It can also be heavy and melancholic -- leading to sluggishness and depression. 



    Please join Rabbi Jacobson on this grounded journey through earth and its roots. Discover how to redirect even your melancholy toward positive ends. Learn how to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, yet have your head, dreams and aspirations in the sky.

    The second of the four human temperaments is water. Water reflects the calm and relaxed personality type. One that is fluid and soothing. The water archetype is love, which surrounds and nurtures us in its embrace. We begin our lives submerged in the embryonic fluids of our mother's womb. Love moisturizes everything it comes in contact with. Like water, it makes things grow and is the source of great pleasure. 



    On a deeper level, the Kabbalistic mystics explain that water manifests the supra-conscious, and teaches us how to be submerged in and absorbed by a reality greater than ourselves, where subject and object fuse as one 



    Please join Rabbi Jacobson and explore this water feature in your life. Learn how to cultivate and build the nurturing powers of water, harness its strengths and temper its indulgences. Discover how to create the proper balance and harmony between the fire and water within your psyche and soul.

    The Physics of Chanukah: Learn How to Shine

    The Physics of Chanukah: Learn How to Shine

    The consensus today -- in most of our secular world -- is that each of us, every organism, every entity, every human, even every gene is inherently selfish. The Selfish Gene is the way Richard Dawkins titled his best-selling book, arguing that everything about existence is driven by the need for its own survival. Even altruism is another form of selfishness, since it help the organism grow and thrive. 



    Is this true? 



    Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this fascinating Chanukah lecture in which he presents an alternative perspective, based on the very nature of light -- as understood by the mystics and recently confirmed by modern physics. Discover how the properties of light, so powerfully reflected in the Chanukah flames, teach us the essence of who we are and who were meant to be: Transparent channels of a higher reality.

    Four Elements Course Part 1: The Kabbalah of Fire

    Four Elements Course Part 1: The Kabbalah of Fire

    Do you know your personality type? Would you like to learn how to harness your strengths and channel your weaknesses? How to maximize your potential and become the best you can possibly be? 



    If you want to discover and actualize yourself in new ways, please take advantage and tune in to this new free 4-part course: Four Elements Within You, with Rabbi Simon Jacobson. Each of these four session lays out one of the four archetypes which define every one of us:



    • Fire: Passion, Illumination, Warmth, Transcendence, Restlessness

    • Wind: Breath, Flexibility, Lightness, Interconnection, Change

    • Water: Moisture, Sensitivity, Growth, Immersion, Selflessness, Humility

    • Earth: Grounding, Foundations, Roots, Security, Steadfastness

     

    Each class explores the positive and negative facets of each element, and offers methods and tools to evaluate yourself, together with practical exercises to implement an action plan.



    This first part, The Kabbalah of Fire, focuses on developing the power of fire -- cultivating the positive forces of passion and the fiery personality, while also taming the negative fires of burning rage and aggression.

    Who's In Control: Men or Women?

    Who's In Control: Men or Women?

    As far back as history goes the male/female dynamic has been at the core of human relationships. Love, intimacy, family, home — the very perpetuation of our species — is build upon the connection between the two genders. The health of a society can be measured by the way they interact. Men and women in harmony produce the most beautiful fruit. When they are at war the ugliness is hard to bear. Is there a secret formula for creating a healthy union between the two? If there is, it remains as elusive as it is mysterious. Can men and women ever see eye to eye?

    In a materialistic world driven by power and control the question will always loom: who is running the show — men or women? Laws and regulations only go that far in trying to create equality; at best they only curb behavior. But they don’t change the sexual, political and psychological dynamics that seem inherent in gender relations. The challenge then is: can we create a better world than that? A world where control and dominance is not the driving force?

    Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this eye-opening presentation and learn the secret to creating just such a world – a spiritually driven existence defined by the ultimate harmony between men and women. Explore the spiritual roots of masculine and feminine energy. By retracing our steps to the genesis of these archetypes and of the gender split, we discover ways to realign our identities, and realize how the two forms of energy are really part of one unifying reality.

    You will never see men and women the same way again.

    Home Alone: Thanksgiving in Quarantine

    Home Alone: Thanksgiving in Quarantine

    Many are lamenting the fact that Thanksgiving 2020 will not be the same as usual. Due to Covid concerns, we will not be able to gather and celebrate with our entire families; travel restrictions will keep close ones apart. People are concerned what impact this will have on our psyches and moods. It's not easy to spend a holiday alone or with just a few loved ones. Loneliness and isolation can have a devastating effect on us. Of course, this only adds to the  the ongoing anxieties created by the lockdowns during the last eight months. 



    But do these circumstances all end up as disappointments and frustrations or worse? Is there any redeeming element to quarantine?



    Please join Rabbi Jacobson and discover the surprising and illuminating opportunity that Thanksgiving offers you this year -- an unprecedented gift allowing you to appreciate your life, your loved ones, your values in unprecedented ways. Develop a new understanding and respect for the power of gratitude and giving thanks, elevating the way you live your life, and transforming your very being and your relationships.
