I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!

Kabbalah Expert - Rabbi Gershon Winkler - Speaking in Costa Rica

Rabbi Gershon Winkler, a star of the Kabbalah theosophy, will give a series of talks about the spiritual movement next week in Costa Rica.

The polemic tradition of ancient Jewish mysticism garnered mainstream attention with celebrity converts like Madonna and Demi Moore. Winkler, who has authored 15 books on the practice, will address the dicey issues about Kabbalah and several other intriguing topics. In addition to one $50 chat called “The Controversy: Is Kabbalah for Everyone?”, Winkler will speak on the soul and death, and also the “joys of sex in Jewish law and lore.”

Miriam Maron, Winkler’s wife and a rabbi, cantor and healer, also will be present at some of the talks. She’s released albums of spiritualistic Kabbalah music.

Winkler has spoken throughout the Americas and in Europe, and is founder of the Kabbalah nonprofit organization Walking Stick Foundation - http://WalkingStick.org

Winkler gained experience as a rabbi in West Virginia, in the United States, where he worked as a rabbi with 2 federal prisons and was Hillel director at West Virginia University in Morgantown. He also worked for several years in Missoula, Montana, and Durango, Colorado.

Winkler has gained acclaim for his storytelling on Jewish folklore and philosophy. According to his website, as far back as 1992, the Wall Street Journal described the rabbi as one who “travels an unusual path and ruffles feathers.”
