Meditational Kabbalah Art Gallery. Contemporary artist Avraham Loewenthal's "Tzfat Gallery of Mystical Art." Blogger Ref http://www.p2pfoundation.net/Multi-Dimensional_Science
To what extent, is "visionary" Kabbalistic Art based on the imagination, or on "genuine" inner experience? RS/Blogger


Art Inspired by Science and Kabbalah http://www.art.net/TheGallery/Vision/Yael Avi-Yonah and Dov Lederberg are two married artists, living and working in Jerusalem over three decades and create original paintings inspired by Kabbalah teachings & meditations. They make frequent exhibitions to the States, their next tour being to the Greater NYC & Boston areas May-June 2005. Please contact them by email: vision@art.net or phone: 972-2-5618303 for details. They also are happy to invite visitors to Jerusalem to visit their unique studio at 44 Diskin in the historic Sharei Chesed neighborhood.
The Gallery of Nachson of Hebron. Jewish mystical and visionary art from "Nachshon of Hebron." I am told that Nachshon was blessed by the Lubavitcher Rebbe many years ago "to effect the tikun of the world of painting." He has presented many unique visions and ideas through his beautiful and profoundly detailed paintings.
Avraham Levitt on the Kabbalistic Significance of the Internet. An interesting work in progress.
The Art of Siona Benjamin. Fascinating artwork from Ms. Benjamin, a Sephardic Jew who was raised in India and who currently lives and teaches in the US. Explores the problem of multiculturalism and Jewish identity in her series of paintings "Finding Home." In these paintings there are Hindu, Jewish and pop-cultural influences. The artist has become interested in Jewish mysticism and there is a mystical aspect to her work.

Jewish hostel in the city of Safed that offers "an integrated experience of Jewish lifestyle activities and Jewish mysticism primarily for Jews with limited or no background." Newsletter and other posts with interesting Kabbalistic/Hasidic materials and information.
James Grotstein's Paper. Discussion of Wilfred Bion's mystical concepts in psychoanalysis, with references to Ein-Sof. As I discuss in Kabbalistic Metaphors, Bion is an important figure for those interested in the relationship between Kabbalah and psychoanalysis.
Janet Zweig, "Ars Combinatoria". Mystical Systems, Procedural Art, and the Computer. Discusses combinatorial systems, beginning with that of Sefer Yetzirah, in connection with modern art, music, etc.
James Hillman Website. As I have pointed out in my essay "The Depth of the Soul: James Hillman's Vision of Psychology (see "Jung and the Kabballah" in this website)," Hillman's archetypal psychology has much to offer those interested in constructing a "New Kabbalah," relevant to the contemporary world.
The Lurianic Kabbalah is treated in detail in Sanford Drob's Symbols of the Kabbalah and Kabbalistic Metaphors .
