About Vital Transformation

Vital Transformation is a free platform that creates and provides spiritual tools, insights, and experiences to help people better understand themselves and their lives.

Vital Transformation began in 2016, after decades of devotion to Kabbalah and two lifetimes of spirituality. We created this free platform to offer access to the study of Kabbalah and all its resources. We offer essential tools for building a better and more enriched spiritual life.

We help make a vital transformation in the hearts, bodies, and minds of each individual. We want to guide you and those around you, to find happiness, personal growth and success. We desire to create a safe environment for everyone to have discussions about spirituality, to democratize Kabbalistic material about spiritual growth that has been previously forbidden for 2000 years.

Those who choose to take their journey with Vital Transformation will be able to embrace our teachings and spread that knowledge to others.
