Integrated Kabbalistic healing (IKH) is a widely practiced and highly acclaimed multi-dimensional healing modality developed by spiritual instructor and Kabbalist Jason Shulman. Shulman also founded A Society of Souls, the intensive three-year Integrated Kabbalistic Healing training program which is required of all practicing Kabbalistic healers. Considered to be revolutionary in concept, IKH incorporates 13th century Kaballah with Buddhist teachings, Western psychologies, and modern-day quantum physics.
Although Integrated Kabbalistic Healing encompasses the views of several world ideologies, its core foundation lies within the mystical teachings of Judaism known as Kabbalah. The teachings of Kabbalah are very similar and often interchangeable with the Buddhist teachings of nonduality, and subsequently, the training program for Integrated Kabbalistic Healing incorporates the scope of both philosophies. Student healers are taught to recognize body, mind, and spirit as “one” and to view all life experiences and events as occurring in relation to one another.
Practitioners of Integrated Kabbalistic Healing believe that, in order to heal on one level, one must treat or be treated on all three levels. Although spiritual in nature, this concept is very similar to the “acorn” principle of quantum physics that describes how an acorn, for example, contains the blueprint for the whole tree. In much the same way, a Kabbalistic healer will view the client’s problematic issue as containing the bigger picture of that individual’s life and treat accordingly on the physical, spiritual, and emotional levels.
Mystical Judaism, much like Zen Buddhism, teaches that the totality of human imperfection is yet another divine creation from the divine creator and it is only the human psyche that spins the drama, not the imperfection. Knowing that IKH views human imperfection as sacred, clients will seek out Kabbalistic healers to resolve both physical ailments and struggles from emotional instability. According to Kabbalah, to forgive the elements that cause physical and emotional pain is to walk the path that connects with God and wholeness and, ultimately, the true meaning of life.
A single IKH session lasts from one to two hours and can take place over the telephone or in person. During the first part of the session, the client will discuss the scope of the problem and the ways in which the problem affects daily life at each of the three levels. This process of allowing the client’s story to unfold is the diagnostic process that lays the foundation on which the Kaballistic healer will begin to work.
During the final portion of the session, the client may lie down, fully clothed, while the healer performs a silent, non-intrusive, hands-on energy healing. The effects of an IKH session can range from subtle to dramatic and increase in intensity as the client moves through healing to wholeness.
Healing professionals, by all accounts, agree that Integrated Kabbalistic Healing is far from the magical manipulations some may believe it to be. Rather, it is considered by accredited professionals to be a unique and compassionate healing approach in which the presence of God is felt between healer and client. It is the actual experience of connecting to God to find peace and serenity that ultimately is said to promote the healing.
