Many of you who have been students at the Centre for a long time will remember how often Rav Berg stressed the importance of this week’s portion. Pinchas is a powerful healing instrument given to us by the Creator and revealed to us by the kabbalists. It always falls during the month of Cancer to give us the energetic support we need not only after the malady strikes, but before it ever manifests in our bodies. As the Rav insisted, the healing energy of Pinchas attacks any dormant dis-ease that exists within us, and the upcoming 7 days that lead up to the reading of the portion itself help to set the foundation to receive as much as we can of this pure laser-like healing energy. As this spiritual opportunity comes but once a year, I would like to ask something of our global community: Can we join together in a unified consciousness this week; a singular focus from the depth of our soul, so that we may send this energy outward to the whole of humankind?
