Rabbi David Cooper is the founder of the Heart of Stillness Hermitage in Boulder, Colorado, and author of God is a Verb: Kabbalah and the Practice of Mystical Judaism. On this one-hour interview with Michael Toms, he talks about this rich mystical tradition that provides insights into "the architecture of the universe" and the soulful dimensions of reality.
Cooper recalls his first experiences with meditation and his decision to leave behind a lucrative career as a political consultant in order to pursue the spiritual life. In his exploration of the Kabbalah, he discusses the boundlessness of God, soul mates, free will, and the battle between good and evil. Here is a stirring vision of the contemplative aspects of Judaism.
