What is the meaning of life?   Why is there so much suffering in the world?   How come no matter what we do, things just seem to get worse?  If you have ever pondered questions such as these, you won’t want to miss this free lecture by teacher,  author and lecturer Michael Kellogg. Thousands of years ago, a handful of men discovered the  fundamental law of Nature, a law more basic than gravity. This law governs the interplay of the forces of  giving and receiving, and dictates everything that occurs in our world. If we understand these forces, we  also understand events in the world surrounding us and the personal world within each of us. The study  of these forces is known as Kabbalah.  Mr. Kellogg is the Director of the Bnei Baruch Learning Center, and author of the book “Wondrous  Wisdom”.  He is a longtime student of Dr. Michael Laitman, who was the personal assistant of Rabbi  Baruch Ashlag (Rabash).  Rabash was the son of the greatest Kabbalist of our century, Rabbi Yehuda  Ashlag, known as Baal HaSulam.  Don’t miss this opportunity to find answers to the fundamental questions of life.  Join us, Wednesday,  7p.m. Feb. 10, at the Washington University West Campus Library Conference Room, 7425 Forsyth Blvd., St. Louis,  for an entertaining and informative discussion about life, meaning and spirituality.
