WILLIAMSBURG — Spiritual seekers have a new outlet to find "permanent fulfillment" in the neighborhood — at a luxury condo building on the Williamsburg waterfront.

The Jewish mystical sect of Kabbalah — an ancient tradition whose popularity has surged in the past few decades as Madonna and other celebrities flocked to its centers — is launching sessions at the Edge condo building next week, according to fliers.

"You have a good life, but you want an extraordinary life and you aren't willing to settle for anything less," says the poster for the Edge's upcoming classes that start Tuesday. "You know what you want, but do you have the tools and the knowledge to change your circumstances, to live your potential and lead the life you desire? Do you have the courage to find out?"

The Kabbalah Centre New York, which typically offers courses at its Midtown headquarters, is offering the Edge's 10-week class for $320, or for $49.99 for friends and family of Kabbalah practitioners, the flier says.

Members of the organization did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but the nonprofit center's website speaks of Kabbalah as "a way of creating a better life and a better world."

"It's a way of looking at the world," the site says, "that can connect you to the kind of permanent fulfillment you seek."
