There is always a process that is continuing throughout our lifetime of experience. It is this process that we are peering into getting to the heart of the matter in various ways. This process goes along with trying to determine the source of all things ultimately seeking to understand Creation so that we may more actively and successfully work together with the flow of being rather than being at odds with it.
Kabbalah cannot be taught it must be experienced. This is to say that while it is true you will learn something of Kabbalah from a lecture or from reading a book about Kabbalah you still won't be able to say that you understand it until you actually live it in your life experience. What you experience is the following:
The awareness of Shekhinta the divine presence the inner movement, all of these markers point to the existence of something else that is going on.
When you begin to notice that your thoughts begin to appear in your life experiences and you make the connection between thoughts and experience this is a precursor to understanding Kabbalah.
One of the reasons why listening to a lecture on Kabbalah that does not contain a question and answer session falls short is that it is the interchange the flow of question and answer that awakens the connections between above and below. Such a static lecture no matter how enlightened it rises to still is lacking in drawing forth the meanings that would otherwise be left behind.
In a sense then every conversation that focuses on Torah, on holiness, on unity, on Hashem, on Shekhinta is by definition an experience of Kabbalah if the central goal is to promote the unity of expression that we all partake of.
