East and west. Right and left. Circle and square. Digital and analog. Transcendent and immanent. Linear physics and quantum mechanics. Indeterminism and determinism. Energy (or spirit) and matter. Function and form. Soul and body. Every system, every philosophy, every person struggles in some way with balancing the two diametric poles of life. Right brain and left brain. Creative and mechanical. The abstract and the tangible. Beyond structure and structure. Unconscious and conscious. Heaven and earth. Can ever the twain meet? Kipling felt that they couldn’t meet when he wrote “Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet.” But he was wrong. Not only can they meet; they can be integrated into one seamless fusion.
Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this pioneering Chayei Sarah workshop and discover how Abraham’s mission “to the East” (Genesis 25:6) contains the answer to the world’s greatest quandary: How can we bridge the schisms between people, communities, nations, cultures and faiths? How can we achieve harmony between the conflicting voices within our psyches? And what is the secret to finding peace in the Middle East, the West and the East?
