The New Age
With the rediscovery of the Zohar by Rabbi Moshe De Leon, a new era began for the study of Kabbalah. As the Zohar and other Kabbalistic writings became more available, more and more people began delving into serious study. Kabbalistic tradition has this new age starting some 700 years ago, at the beginning of the 6th millennium from world Creation. This is when preparations begun for the "7th millennium", described by the greatest prophets and Kabbalists as being the 'Sabbathical Millenium' or "Messianic Era", which will be a period in which superior consciousness will be available to all, and will encompass all of reality.
These preparations are characterized by the revelation of the inner and hidden Torah,The Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism which prepares human consciousness for unprecedented great revelations. This is accomplished by understanding the codes of both the universe and the human soul the way the Kabbalah teaches it.
After the 16th century, when the Ari revealed the depths of "Lurianic Kabbalah", and demanded that its wisdom be disseminated throughout the world, many people heeded the Ari's call, and the study of Kabbalah became more widespread throughout the Jewish world. Finally, the birth of The Chassidic Movement that promoted the spread of Jewish mysticism, as well as the increased involvement in Kabbalah by both Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jewish spiritual leaders, has resulted in the popular study of Kabbalah in almost every corner of the world.
So today the question is no longer can one learn Kabbalah, but rather how to study, with whom and where.
