New York, NY (PRWEB) September 8, 2006
The world’s foremost Kabbalist, Israel-based Michael Laitman, will offer a rare analysis of escalating global processes such as natural disasters and the current maelstrom in the Middle East at the upcoming Dropping Knowledge global roundtable event taking place on September 9th in Berlin.
Michael Laitman, PhD, the disciple and personal assistant to Kabbalist Yehuda Ashlag’s son during the last 12 years of his life, will be one of 112 prominent leaders and visionaries tackling the world’s most challenging issues. The author of over thirty books, his most recent work – Kabbalah, Science and the Meaning of Life (Laitman Kabbalah Publishers/October 2006/$9.95) -- reveals the hidden aspects of reality to provide a complete picture of the world we live in, along with a deeper understanding of our personal and collective roles that are vital for humanity’s progress.
Dr. Laitman comes to Dropping Knowledge prepared with hard answers to age-old questions ranging from individual meaning of life issues, to the spiritual roots of anti-Semitism, to solutions for solving the geo-political crisis in the Middle East. Many of these insights have not been discussed in public forums since the inception of the State of Israel. According to Laitman, the time is right to reveal these insights to a global audience.
According to Dr. Laitman, Yehuda Ashlag’s books “explain the entire history of all of mankind - all the reality beforehand - about the creation of the worlds and ours, and the entire process mankind is going through,” he said.
At Dropping Knowledge, Dr. Laitman will be available to answer questions within the context of press and media interviews.
