Daniel Matt: Cosmology and Consciousness (excerpt) — A Thinking Allowed DVD w/ Jeffrey Mishlove

NOTE: This is an excerpt from the two-part, 60-minute DVD.

Daniel Matt discusses the core teachings of Jewish kabbalistic mysticism, and describes the qualities that connect the divine being to the human being. In discussing modern thought, he notes that while the big bang story is inconsistent with the biblical account of creation, it is in harmony with the teachings of prophets and mystics.

Daniel Matt, Ph.D., is professor of Jewish spirituality at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. He is author of God and the Big Bang and The Essential Kabbalah.
