The Religious Imagination: Thinking and Unthinking God

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What can one say of the unknown and unknowable God? And what is the role of the imagination and its cultivation in this process, especially in times of "exile" from spiritual clarity? Some guidance will come from a striking passage in the Zohar and a teaching of the Maggid of Mezritch.
