A tale that still resonates within me. It is about life and the various aspects of life and knowing when to let go. The teacher serves as a counselor to the students who's assignment it is to analyze an underground excavation. The excavation is about discovering its true merit and background. But each student also discovers concerning their own merit and the things in their background they need to tear down, build up again, keep or leave behind. This is a well written story that presents several layers of meaning in almost everything these students are engaged in. This tale Spirit Tale Three is about the ability to assess oneself, situations, people, monuments, lives and acquiring the discernment to understand what is of great worth and what isn't. These are hefty subjects but author Rabbi Sipporah Joseph is presenting them in an accessible fashion.

Spirit Tale Three: Teacher of Counsel is a very strong tale with great narration that draws you deeper into the multi-level application of the excavation theme. The students have to basically excavate themselves while analyzing the mysterious underground site. Every student has a personal story to tell. I identified with certain characters in the tale and felt brought through all their revelations and breakthroughs as the story unraveled. The storytelling in the tale is done by a Sephardic Jewish family which makes the evaluations concerning the tale within the story even more interesting. This is a must read!

A probing tale with the right amount of humor. Spirit Tale Three the Teacher of Counsel is about an excavation. The excavation takes place on a physical,- a deeper inward personal,- and metaphysical level. The students in this Spirit Tale are all on a different level but they are given the tools to deal with whatever it is they need to excavate, find out for themselves.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Spirit Tale Three, Teacher of Counsel is a fiction work written by Rabbi Sipporah Joseph. It's about The School of Divine Instruction. 234 students embarked on this quest for knowledge in the first tale, but they do not progress as a group. Some are held longer by their teacher, and others may choose to remain with a teacher if they feel they have more to learn. The first teacher is the Dean of the School. He has cleared the way for 104 students to pass to the next teacher, the Teacher of Counsel. He brings the students to some old and dusty ruins and gives them their assignment. They are to act as archaeologists and study the ruins, looking for things of beauty and things that speak to them directly. Some only see ruins and lifeless garbage, and others see great beauty. Rabbi Sipporah Joseph's Spirit Tale series offers profound yet easily accessible lessons on spirituality. Spirit Tale Three, Teacher of Counsel covers much ground and many subjects. Among them is Messianic Judaism and how it is perceived by some Jews to be a threat. Christians and the evangelical movement are also addressed in an inclusive manner. While there are some aspects to the teachings in this work with which I do not wholly agree, I appreciated the presentation and the invitation to consider differing views. I do love the international flair that is built into the series generally, and in this tale, specifically, where Jews of all different nationalities are celebrated and the session with Grandpa Sereno is quite marvelous.
