Torah Empowerment Seminar – By Pinchas Winston
FOR MANY, TORAH IS primarily a code of morality, designed to encourage a spiritually-inclined lifestyle. It expects subjugation to its system of mitzvos and loyalty to God. In short, it is designed to make good “soldiers.”
Such people do not associate Torah with empowerment, inspiration, or increased motivation. They do not understand how Torah is deeper than any human mind can fathom, and that this depth explains the entire universe, what we can see and what we cannot. They do not appreciate that Torah holds the secret to self-actualization in the most meaningful way possible.
The system is called “Pardes.”
The Hebrew word itself only means “orchard,” but something far more profound as the acronym for the four Hebrew words:Pshat, Remez, Drush, and Sod. Literally, the names mean: Simple, Hint, Exegesis, and Secret, and refers to four levels of Torah learning: Mikrah, Mishnah, Talmud, and Kabbalah.
Knowledge is power. Pardes is access to the most powerful knowledge available to man. Knowledge empowers. Pardes is an integrated system of such knowledge, the mastering of which results in tremendous personal empowerment and on-going inspiration.
THE GOAL OF THIS seminar is to inspire and motivate. As the blueprint for Creation, Torah, vis-à-vis “Pardes,” relates a wealth of information about Creation, life, and history.
The realization of this is extremely uplifting. Harnessing it is life-altering, and truly empowering on a daily basis. The material will provide a unique understanding of the Torah system, and how to utilize it. It will teach how to personally advance one’s understanding of Creation and life.
It will become clear why Pardes is crucial for personal harmony and continuous peace of mind.
