The Mystery of Kabbalah

The Kabbalah is the traditional Jewish mysticism subject that focuses on ethical and spiritual outlooks with firm religious roots. This subject is highly controversial, and several questions have been left unanswered over the years. The mission of Kabbalah is quite unusual, and several celebrities like Madonna have publicly espoused Kabbalistic doctrines. Judy Myers in the book “Kabbalah and the Spiritual Quest” has thoroughly undertaken a serious study of this phenomenon. Her analysis of the movement spans from its roots, teachings, values of spiritual healing, and its popularization in the US. She also takes us through the profiles of some adherents. Her major focus is on the sociological and psychological approach stressing on the movements functional character.

Traditionally, Rabbis highly believed that the subject of Kabbalah and its mysteries were so complex and very easily misunderstood. They, therefore, preferred teaching it to devout students over the age of 40(mostly males). Many traditionalists, therefore, associate Kabbalah to the ancient, secretive Judaism’s mystic tradition.

The Kabbalah Centre International

The Kabbalah Center International provides courses on the Kabbalistic teachings and Zohar through its regional centers, worldwide study groups and also online. It is a nonprofit entity based in Los Angeles, California with a multi-ethnic staff of international teachers to provide Kabbalistic studies and guidance to its student community worldwide. The presentation was developed by the Kabbalah Center director Philip Berg and his wife, Karen Berg.

The mystical tradition is quickly spreading through all the cities of the world including Boca Raton, Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, Philadelphia, San Diego, London, Toronto and Las Vegas. The Kabbalah beliefs and practices are quickly becoming fashionable, and the adherents are determined to stay on.

Final Verdict

According to Kabbalah, all religious and spiritual affiliations across the world are specific branches of the universal wisdom. It is a resemblance to religions like Judaism, Islam Christianity and Buddhism in addition to new age teachings.  There have however been numerous criticism and controversies on the financial misappropriation with some media critics alleging that the charismatic Kabbalah leaders use the promise of wealth, good health and happiness to attract the vulnerable and the rich.

Goldenberg met and collaborated with his future business partner Don Ressler at Intermix Media on YouTube. Like Goldberg, Ressler sold his company FitnessHeaven.com to Intermix and then became an employee there. The dynamic pair worked together to develop Alena Media which quickly became Intermix Media’s most profitable company. When media giant NewsCorp acquired Intermix n 2005 Goldenberg and Ressler left the company. Soon after they teamed up to form Intelligent Beauty LLC.

Intelligent Beauty would become the parent company to the duo’s future e-commerce startup companies on en.wikipedia.org.

In 2010 Team Goldenberg-Ressler took on the world of women’s fashion with JustFab.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Flies High During Athleisure Trend

In a recent article, Yahoo! Finance discussed the growing popularity of athleisure clothing in the fashion world and the huge part that Kate Hudson’s Fabletics plays in it.

Athleisure has become such a trend that sales of athletic wear increased by 16 percent in the past year and the term has officially been added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Established retailers and new brands are all cashing on on the athleisure boom, including Fabletics, co-founded by actress Kate Hudson. Though the brand is only three years old, its website has already gained over a million VIP members.

The company’s CEO Adam Goldenberg offers some ideas on why athleisure, specifically Fabletics products on Instagram, have gained such popularity in a short time. He suggests that women want to look stylish while still being comfortable and able to move. He credits the success of his company to two things: fun styles and low costs. “Our prints are very unique and women love it.  We’re delivering, in our view, Lululemon quality for a third or half of the price.”

Unlike many retailers that are losing business at their brick and mortar locations in favor of online shopping, Fabletics is doing the opposite. They began as an exclusively online business, then opened their first physical stores after they gained brand recognition.

Fabletics is an affordable, easy-to-use online retailer that sells athletic and casual clothing for both men and women. The company cuts out the middle man (stores) between the manufacturer and you, so you get higher quality products for less. Fabletics’ goal is to help its customers “Live Your Passion” every day by offering easy, on-trend styles you’ll love.

Customers take a quiz to determine their personal style preferences upon creating an account, then Fabletics gives them personalized outfit suggestions on consumerist.com. Each month, customers have the option to either make a purchase or “skip the month.” If you sign up for a VIP Member account, you get up to 50 percent off retail prices, free shipping on orders over $49, and you earn rewards points towards more awesome stuff!
