Annual Summer School

Dear Friends,
Sadly, due to the current circumstances, our 2020 summer school at Hawkwood College was cancelled. Please link with Hawkwood here to follow their journey during these unprecedented times. Looking ahead to a positive future, we shall be returning next year: Tuesday, 31 August – 3 September 2021. Please contact Hawkwood direct to register your interest.

The Kabbalah Society’s residential summer school is held at Hawkwood College in Stroud, Gloucestershire, at the end of August each year. For over 30 years it was guided by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi (Warren Kenton) and in 2014, at the age of 82, he decided to rest from this task and pass it on to Kurt Browne and Joanna Lapage-Browne.

During a period of four days, contemplation, guided imagery meditations, lectures and practical exercises will assist in bringing the Teaching to life. Afternoon breaks will allow time for solitude, conversation, local trips or walks in the surrounding grounds and woodland.

Format for each day:

Breakfast – 8.30 am
Session 1 – 9.30 am – 11.00 am
Coffee – 11.00 am – 11.30 am
Session 2 – 11.30 am – 12.45 pm
Lunch – 1.00 pm
Afternoon free
Tea – 4.00 pm
Session 3 – 4.30 pm – 6.00 pm
Supper – 6.30 pm

Hawkwood College
Hawkwood is an enchanting 19th English mansion surrounded by 42 acres of beautiful, serene woodland and fields, with exceptional views across the countryside towards the mountains of Wales in the distance. While the course is intense, it is also a holiday in good company. Here, enduring friendships are forged between people from many lands. This is a characteristic of the Kabbalah Society’s, School of the Soul.
