About the Lecturer

Gahl Sasson makes Kabbalah, astrology and psychology engaging, illuminating, and fun. The way he sees Kabbalah is accessible to anyone from any faith and background. The innovative examples that he conjures up to illustrate these high concepts spurs his audience to laugh and then declare, Aha. Most of all, Gahl tells stories, relating a vast array of compelling myths from traditions across the globe to delineate the workings of the inner world. His book, A Wish Can Change Your Life, (published by Simon & Schuster and co-written with Steve Weinstein), blends wisdom and metaphors from cultures across history and the entire world into an innovative blueprint for personal transformation and material enrichment. Thousands have enthusiastically embraced his fresh and stimulating approach to spirituality in lectures and workshops in the United States, Mexico, and Israel.

A multi-talented creative force, Gahl also works as a performer, musician and composer, and he is one of a few westerners to have mastered the hauntingly beautiful art of throat singing. As part of all his lectures, Gahl guides his audience on a meditation using ancient Hebrew chants sung with overtones that induce a state of receptivity and calm in everyone in the room. A charismatic composer of life, Gahl uses myths and religious philosophies as if they were tones and melodies to create an upbeat and beguiling environment in which people are able to unlock the poignant meaning vibrating amid the stories of their lives. Gahl is teaching in the Learning Annex of Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and New York. He currently teach at the University of Judaism. His work was featured on ABC Eyewitness News as well as KTLA. His work was featured in Self Magazine, Jewish Journal, Portland Tribune, Togi Times to name a few.
