Presented by Lynne Radomsky, Ph.D. The Kabbalistic creation myth describes the act of creation as resulting in the shattering of the supernal union between the masculine and feminine deities. It then became the divinely appointed task of humankind to participate in the restoration of this original divine union.

Our survival depends not only on our ability to work together, but also to begin to address the myriad of ways in which we have abandoned our planet in order to further our own sensibilities. Like all nightmares, the pandemic carries the same message, that something needs to change fundamentally and urgently.
