You are unlike any person who has ever lived before. How can you make the most of the gifts you have been given?
The Kabbalah of Character, a new and expanded revision of our popular course "Soul Powers," is designed to help you understand the unique mix of qualities that define your individuality. Drawing on the organizational structure of the Kabbalah, this course examines the nature of the human soul created in the image of G‑d.

The Kabbalah of Character is not a quick-fix. You won’t learn how to become a perfect person in eight easy lessons. But you will learn strategies for making changes that are lasting and real. Authored by Rabbi Moshe Miller, noted scholar of Kabbalah, the course invites you to choose from among a wealth of reflective approaches to chart your own path to personal growth. It includes wisdom to amaze you and stories to inspire you, as well as journal exercises and practical tools to help you apply the lessons to your own life.
So spend eight weeks learning the secrets that will help you unlock your inner potential.
Because you won’t know what you can be… until you hold a mirror to your soul.

For several reasons, I think this upcoming course is a “not to be missed” opportunity for people interested in personal growth and self-improvement.

My experience with a previous JLI course greatly impressed me with how applicable these Torah-based lessons and insights are to encouraging healthy interpersonal relationships. What I learned from previous courses has been of great value professionally and personally. I highly recommend this new course and trust that participants will find its wisdom relevant to their daily lives.

This course can be thought of as the “Seven Habits of Highly Effective Jews.” It lays the groundwork for making the changes needed for building a healthy self-esteem, enabling participants to feel good about who they are as they find and accomplish their missions in life. This is the path to psychological health using a Jewish road map.

What could be better.. . a course that captures the kabbalistic perspective on the skills and values that really matter and their practical application to ourselves as well as the world around us. I’m looking forward to being there!

I have been an assiduous admirer of the JLI Courses that are offered here in Sao Paulo.. . When I read the summary of the Kabbalah of Character, it opened up for me an entirely new avenue of thinking. I have always viewed the Kabbalah as a way to understand the creation of the world, including mankind. However, this course uses that body of knowledge to analyze the way humans think, feel, and behave. In my work, I was trained to use the psychoanalytic framework and its dynamic laws.  This course provides a new perspective on theunconscious, amalgamating cognitive and emotional approaches in a clear and astute fashion,
going beyond either of them alone. As a result of taking this course, hope to bring new insight to my work so that I can assist my fellow humans in a richer manner.

At last, a course that offers real insight into what makes us tick.

No more pop psychology that becomes a passing fad before the time the “ink dries.” Relying on the wisdom of Torah, Kabbalah, and Jewish tradition, these lessons open a window into our soul.

This course starts off in similar way to many other motivational courses, looking at goals, values, purpose and character traits. What is so clearly unique about this course is how it weaves into the sub-
ject matter the fact that we are all created in G‑d’s image, “that man is a composite of animal, human and divine qualities,” and how having a soul affects our character and our ability to develop our character, and the fact that we are all unique and yet integrally connected with others.

Contemporary Psychology struggles to address the issue of G‑d and how having a soul affects us in general, and specifically with regards to personality or character development. This course introduces and
develops these concepts in a very clear and practical manner, and as such, I highly recommend it.

“Kabbalah of Character” is a magnificent resource for anyone interested in human psychology, the make-up of personality, and the nature of relationships. In short, it should be of interest to any
thinking, feeling person. It is of particular interest to those of us in the mental health professions.  Kabbalistic psychology has a profundity and level of sophistication that goes beyond psychoanalytic, cognitive, and behavioral theories. Take the coursel
If you are a therapist, it will make you a better one.  It will make us all better human beings.

Throughout our life, our genetic heritage and culture are either manifested or repressed according to our individual experiences, making us unique in the universe. We grow and evolve in environments and cultures that shape our character, the ethical
aspects of our personality.

To master character is to invest in our most exclusive asset and at the same time, contribute to the enrichment of human values. This course offers the thousands year old wisdom of Kabbalah and
its teachings, as well as reflections and exercises about the meaning of life, the recognition of who we are, our ability to love, to overcome obstacles, to bond, and to transcend the anguish of our very existence. It is a privilege to encounter a tried and
proven method of character growth and maturity, especially in such a critical moment in the development of moral values in Brazilian society.
