1) Who is Rabbi Laibl Wolf?

Creator of a phenomenon called MindYoga™, Rabbi Laibl Wolf is a pioneer and a visionary. Known to many as a spiritual mentor and mystic and for the past 32 years, he has worked as a global teacher of new age philosophies. Laibl brings "old age" wisdom to the "new age", drawing his teachings from the ancient and previously encrypted texts the Kabbalah. The son of Polish Holocaust survivors, Laibl also a lawyer and educational psychologist, specializing in teenage rebellion. He is the Founder and Director of the Human Development Institute, a foundation dedicated to the progress of humankind through insight and personal mastery.

2) What does he teach?

Laibl’s teachings focus on personal growth and emotional mastery. His teachings are universal, open to people of all backgrounds and spiritual orientations. He uses the wisdom contained in the 4,000-year-old Kabalistic texts to reveal the inner workings of the mind-emotion balance. Although based on ancient and traditional wisdom, Laibl’s philosophies are modern and progressive, and facilitate the growth of one’s inner spirit in a technologically driven society.

While spiritually based, Laibl’s teachings are highly pragmatic. They are derived from Jewish mysticism, which is known to hold the key to the mysteries of cosmic and human consciousness. His teachings bring his audience to deeper levels of spiritual enlightenment. A leader in emotion mastery, Laibl has translated these complicated esoteric insights into a practical system of application to the minutiae of everyday life. He is able to help people discover the motivation behind their thoughts and emotions, which enables them to understand their behavioral patterns. To this end, Laibl developed the original system of "Behavioral Kabbalah", which transmutes the ancient mystical teachings into a pathway of personal fulfillment.

3) Tell us about his book, Practical Kabbalah?

Practical Kabbalah (Three Rivers Press™ of Random House, Inc., 1999) is based on an ancient wisdom that explains the laws of spiritual energy. It is the source of "new age" knowledge. The message of Practical Kabbalah is one of selfmastery and the book illustrates a model for understanding the way the human soul, emotions and mind work together to provide us with harmony and balance. By teaching meditative, visualization and behavioral techniques, Rabbi Wolf helps us to create a serenity of the mind so that the climate of the heart can be one of peace. He explains how to harness and welcome these energies so that we can become an artist of the soul, which in turn eliminates negative traits like anger, pessimism, and insecurity.

4) Is the Kabbalah for people of all faiths?

Not only does it provide invaluable information for people of all faiths, but for people who do not possess a religious orientation, yet are interested in self-change and personal mastery.

5) What is MindYoga™?

MindYoga™ is derived from spiritual postures of the mind as taught by ancient Kabbalah systems. It is the notion that without a sense of peace within one’s state of mind, a person’s physical state will not be able to function at it’s highest level. Through Rabbi Wolf’s MindYoga™ approach, he is able to help people discover the motivation behind their thoughts and emotions, which enables them to understand their behavioral patterns. Just as the emergence of Mind/Body medicine has demonstrated the tremendous affect that our mental posture has on our health and well being, MindYoga™ describes the mindful way of developing a positive attitude and how that relates to our physical well being. Here, Rabbi Wolf’s MindYoga™ approach explains the spiritual dynamics of the body and its relationship to the Cosmos at large.

MindYoga™ answers questions like:

  • How can we control and discipline the climate of the mind?
  • How does spiritual self-mastery produce physical well being and success in the relationship of self and relationships with others?
  • What is the nature of the soul and how is it related to the mind and heart?
  • How do our dreams offer us profound insights and explanations to our present state of being?

6) Does he conduct workshops and is he touring the speaking circuit?

Yes. He has lectured in over 350 cities across the globe, and is a sought after speaker, conducting retreats, seminars, master classes and training programs continually throughout the world. Addressing groups as divergent as the American Psychological Association, the Fortune 500 convention, and Buddhist monks, he is often the keynote speaker at worldwide conferences such as the "Argentinean Economy and Psycho/Spiritual Solutions" in Argentina. As Laibl is attuned to the similarities between Eastern spirituality and Kabbalist teachings, he has met with many leaders of other spiritual communities, including The Dalai Lama. Through his meditation techniques and MindYoga™ approach, Laibl’s audiences are able to master their emotions and empower their lives.

7) What is the Human Development Institute that Rabbi Wolf founded?
