StoneFlower Kabbalah
A site based on the healing of the ancient wisdom of the Geocentric worldview. The understanding of sacred texts and wisdom is based on a relationship to the Source. This Central Source is the Fount from which the three distinct movements of the Earth globe flow. These three turns-rotation,revolution and precession are a great secret/sod and key to the profound teachings of the mekubalim/kabbalists. These movements provide us with the experience of shanah/time, olam/matter and nephesh/soul(being). The Earth turn called precession is the slow wobble that causes the polar skies to change slowly over a 26,000 year cycle.
The chart of "72" names relates to this great cycle and is a key to unlocking where we are in "time".

Ancient Jewish Folktales and Miriam's Well

On last weeks post there is a comment by Howard Schwartz, who has compiled and retold a fantastic series of Jewish Folktales. His book "Miriam's Tambourine" Oxford University Press; is only one book in a series of books that contain many beautiful Jewish Folktales from around the world. In his books he also includes copious notes as to the provenance and origins of these very old and ancient tales. Thank you to Mr.Schwartz for making these stories so available. Although I do not copy verbatim any stories or printed material that is used in this blog without attribution, there has been a succinct retelling of events from these tales in my own words. We are grateful for the folks like Mr.Schwartz who have made a great deal of effort to make the tales readily available to all people. A theme of this blog as the regular readers already know, is to help make possible an access to the precious wisdom teachings which flow from the same place that all oral Torah comes from, Miriam's Well; which the Pirke Avoth tells us was one of ten things created in the twilight of the first Sabbath. Baruch HaShem!
