Open Minds: The Stone of Consciousness with Joel Bakst (September 2015)
Joel Bakst explains how the tenets of the Torah, Talmud and Kabballah work together, with human consciousness, to help reunify the collective human soul. Rabbi Bakst reveals at the heart of the brain lay the seat of the soul, the pineal. And at the heart of the holy land lay the seat of the humanity’s soul, the foundation stone. Through our consciousness, we can willfully unify these two hearts and reunite our lower dimensional existence with the higher dimensions of divinity. This interview with Regina Meredith was originally webcast September 3, 2015.
Joel David Bakst is a teaching rabbi and scholar of Talmud and Kabbalah who, while living in Jerusalem for 20 years, studied and taught in Orthodox yeshivot. Raised in a Southern California Conservative Jewish home, Joel became a ba’al teshuva (newly religious) at the age of 20 bringing full circle his lineage from a long line of rabbis. He is the 8th generation of Rabbi Avraham Ragoler of Skhlov, the brother of Rabbi Eliyahu, the famed Gaon of Vilna, whose unique teachings and School of Kabbalah, have been a focus of Joel’s esoteric studies.
He is the author of several books dealing with, together with other subjects, the synergy between Kabbalah and the new sciences.
