The first comprehensive, down-to-earth
introduction to explain the primary
Kabbalah—that we are to become like God.
Unlike the faddish books that just discuss
Kabbalah as a magical system, or those that treat it as if it
were separable from Judaism, this inspiring book makes
accessible the mysteries of Kabbalah with thorough scholarship
and depth of spiritual insight. It traces the evolution of
Kabbalah in Judaism and sets forth its most important gift: a
way of revealing the connection that exists between our
"everyday" life and the spiritual oneness of the
universe. Including hands-on "personal Kabbalah"
exercises that help bring the teachings into your life, The Gift of Kabbalah explores:
Healing from the
Holiness in the
Place in History
Building a Positive
Structure for Life
The Soul's Contract
...and much more.
"A clear, comprehensive guide to
Jewish mystical wisdom. If you've ever asked yourself, 'What
can Kabbalah do for me?' this book will provide the
