Description
For centuries the arcane knowledge of Kabbalah was considered too sacred for the general public; only in the past few decades has it become widely known and studied. The map of consciousness central to Kabbalah is the so-called Tree of Life, intended to integrate all aspects of ourselves—mind, body, and spirit—and just as Sufism represents the mystical or devotional path of Islam, so the Kabbalah enhances an understanding of Judaic law and lore. Here the author of Wizards, The Brotherhood, and Symbolism presents a beautifully illustrated introduction to the teachings of the Kabbalah and its practical application in life.

"There's no doubt that kabbalah, the practice of Jewish mysticism, is not for the faint of heart. As the book's introduction notes, it is nothing less than God's blueprint for creation ... a vibrant body of mystical techniques and teachings. So it's to [Tim] Dedopulos's credit that he makes (almost) understandable something that is so very complicated. He begins by tracing kabbalah's history and then spends much of the book explaining the basic image of kabbalah, the Tree of Life—what it is and what it means. Kabbalah's place in other mystical traditions and in today's world is also covered. The clean format aids concentration, the historical images add interest, and illustrations of the Tree of Life are clear and helpful to learning.... Exercises allow readers to try out meditation techniques that lead closer to the practice of kabbalah. A good starting point."—Booklist
