   schema:description "Kabbalah and psychoanalysis are conceptions about the nature of reality. The former is over two thousand years old. The latter was formalized less than a hundred years ago. Nonetheless they are parallel journeys of discovery that have altered not only what we see, but the very nature of seeing itself. The domain of Kabbalah is the spiritual and material macrocosm. In contrast, the concern of psychoanalysis is the microcosm, the innermost recesses of the human mind. However, both are convergent and complementary theories. Kabbalah asserts "as above so below," meaning that the Godhead, the source of everything, is reflected in the smallest details of existence. Similarly, psychoanalysis traces the evolution from "inner objects" to family feuds and social fields. Centers of Power explores these convergences and divergences, complementarities and conflicts between Kabbalah and psychoanalysis, in order to amplify their impact and unlock the power of these two disciplines to enhance mankind's understanding of reality."@en ;
