7th Annual Living Essene Gathering
August 18-22, 2017
The spiritual mission of the Living Essenes is clearly emerging. The Living Essene role is being defined by the Divine will of helping the planet, its people, and the environment come into a healthy spiritual balance. This program is open to everyone interested in or curious about the Living Essene lifestyle.
We will be talking about the Living Essenes in relationship to the energies of individual and planetary evolution today. The focus is not about healthy survival for self alone, but taking the planet to its next evolutionary state through going deeper into alignment. It is time for the Living Essenes to move into educative-focused activity for shifting the consciousness of the planet.
Led by Master Essene Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D(H), D.D., and Priests and Priestesses.
What you get at the Living Essene Gathering
This year’s 7th Annual Living Essene Gathering will focus on the theme of “Turning Chaos into Light”. The Living Essene Way is a path of liberation through the eternal journey of Lekh Lekha (Go to the Self), in which we discover the Divine Presence emanating out of the silence of the Self as the direct knowledge of peace beyond understanding. The Living Essene Way is a Biblical liberation path in which we experience peace as a natural expression of the Culture of Life and Liberation.
According to the great historian, Josephus, the Essenes were “champions of faith, truth, and honesty… as the servants and arbitrators of peace”. These qualities are much needed in today’s chaotic, confused, and morally and ethically relative world.
The Living Essene Way, as taught by Rabbi Gabriel, is a complete liberation path and lineage that goes back approximately 6,000 years. The path was activated by Enoch, the seventh generation from Adam, who was taken up liberated and alive. His essential teaching was “Be still and know that I am That.” The Essenes lived in the eternal presence beyond the confines of identification with mind and body. The Essene way of life in the world is one of God-merging, in which we walk before God and be whole and a blessing to the planet. The Essene way of life encourages us to wake up and stay awake. Essentially, the Living Essene Way is a way of liberation transcending egocentric and ethnocentric worldviews toward a cosmocentric worldview.
This Year’s Event
The workshop will begin with a Shamanic Liberation Shabbat on Friday night, 8/18/17, where we’ll be graced with a guest Essene cantor and medical doctor, Kenny Davin Fine, MD, who’s been the cantor for our high holidays in the past.
On the morning of days 1, 2, and 3 will be Ophanim and KaliRay Tri-yoga lead by Priestess Shanti and Rav Gabriel.
On Saturday, breakfast will be followed by a public Torah reading and parshah discussion, followed by small group discussions lead by the priests and priestesses.

Before Havdalah there will be a Haniha Meditation, followed by a general discussion of the day lead by Rav Gabriel.
On Sunday morning, after breakfast, Rav Gabriel will present part 1 of a first time ever lecture on in-depth Torah-based understanding of veganism, followed by small group sessions led by the priests and priestesses with the same pattern in the afternoon topic of part-2 of Torah Veganism, and then a general discussion with the whole group led by Rav Gabriel, followed by a one hour Haniha Meditation.
Monday will be a similar pattern with a day dedicated to empower our Essene brethren to create light from the chaos through the understanding of occult mechanics in order to nullify and defeat the overt, degenerative, ever-bolder black occult activities of the dark side, which have become so popular in today’s chaotic and confused world.
The overall point of day 3 is to empower the Essene students to create a Tikkun ha Olam energy that will nullify dark energies prevalent in today’s world. The day will end with Haniha meditation and a closing party.
