Karen Berg

Karen Berg is an author and founder of The Kabbalah Centre International. 

More than four decades ago, Karen and her husband, Rav Berg, set out to make Kabbalah understandable and relevant to all people without exclusion with the goal of teaching the spiritual wisdom and tools of Kabbalah to help people better their lives, believing that by doing so the world also benefits. 

Under their leadership, The Kabbalah Centre has grown from a single location into a leading source of spiritual wisdom with more than 40 centers around the globe. The Centre serves a worldwide community of over 300,000 through books, classes, one-on-one learning, spiritual trips, and spiritual connections online and at physical brick and mortar locations.

As spiritual director of The Kabbalah Centre, Karen is devoted to an enduring vision— within each person is a spark of God that can be bound together to create transcendence beyond all differences. To this end, Karen has also founded the international online children’s education program Spirituality for Kids, and Kids Creating Peace (KCP), a program that helps children discover for themselves a place of peaceful coexistence in the Middle East which has presented at the French National Assembly and the United Nations Youth Assembly in NYC.

Karen speaks globally on issues of human dignity and peace with such spiritual and thought leaders as his holiness the Dalai Lama, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi, President Mahmoud Abbas, Hilary Rantisi, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Bawa Jain, Dr. Jehan Sadat, Ibtisam Mahameed, Mabel Katz, Ho’oponopono, and Ilchi Lee.  

She is the author of Finding the Light Through the Darkness: Inspirational Lessons Rooted in the Bible and the Zohar; Simple Light: Wisdom from a Woman’s Heart; To Be Continued: Reincarnation and the Purpose of our Lives; God Wears Lipstick; and Kabbalah for Women.
