Kabbalistic Teachings of the Female Prophets - The
Seven Holy Women of Ancient Israel
by J. Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus
The spiritual teachings of Israel’s biblical
prophetesses from a kabbalistic perspective
• Explores the lives and symbolic significance of seven female prophets: Sarah, Miriam, Devorah, Chanah, Avigail, Chuldah, and Esther
• Uses the gematria of Jewish metaphysics to demonstrate that prophecy is a mystical initiatory path by which Divine Will is made known, not only a tool for telling the future
• Presents practical applications of kabbalistic teachings for spiritual development
The seven prophetesses of Israel - Sarah, Miriam, Devorah, Chanah, Avigail, Chuldah, and Esther - lived between 1800 and 350 BCE. Their combined lives reflect a kabbalistic path of spiritual evolution that is as pertinent to our lives today as it was for the biblical communities in which they lived.
From her studies of the Torah and classical gematria, Zohara Hieronimus shows that each prophetess is linked to a Sefirah on the kabbalistic Tree of Life - from creation (Sarah) through learning correct moral action (Devorah) to the promise of redemption and ultimately resurrection (Esther). Using the stories of their lives and teachings, Hieronimus reveals the relationship of each prophetess to the seven days of the week, the seven sacred species of Israel, the human body, and Jewish holidays and rituals.
This book presents the kabbalistic teachings of these holy women and what they reveal about the initiatory path of individual development and redemption. The seven prophetesses show that every person has a part to play in the repair of the world, and Hieronimus gives a practical set of maps and spiritual guidelines for that journey.

Tree Of Life: An Illustrated Study in
by Israel Regardie
wrote The Tree of Life, a book many consider his magnum opus, in 1932.
It has continued to sell for decades. And no wonder. Up until the time
this book was published, very little information about true high magic
was available to the public.
In this book, Regardie reveals the secrets of real magic. He begins with an explanation of what magic is and, just as importantly, what magic is not. He explains that it is a spiritual study and practice which, along with forms of yoga, forms the two branches of the tree that is mysticism. Magic is not being a medium or a psychic. Then he explains the tools of the magician, what they mean, and how to use them. He explains the techniques of evocation and invocation, skrying, and astral travel. He shows how the Qabalah unites everything. He even gives a description of the secrets of sexual magick. All of this is in a clear, lucid writing style. This book is simply a must for anyone who is, or aspires to be, a real magician.
Although Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero were friends of Regardie and are Senior Adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, what changes could they have made to this classic book? Well, they did change the spelling from British style to American. And they did change his transliterations of Hebrew into the more popular style he used in his later books. But nothing vital was changed or removed. Everything else they added was complementary to the text that was there. And what incredible additions they are! Extensive annotations throughout every chapter; over 100 illustrations; more descriptive contents pages; a glossary, a bibliography and an index. They've even added a biographical note on Regardie and the importance of this book to him and to the occult world.
This book contains some of the finest occult writing that has ever been produced. And with the new material by the Ciceros, it becomes a must-have for any magician.
The Kabbalah Unveiled
trans. by S.L. MacGregor Mathers
is a translation of an important slice of the Zoharic corpus [the Zohar
is one of three source texts on the Kabbalah]. Containing three ‘books’
dealing with the manifestation of the Absolute, brought forth from what
the Kabbalists call the No-Thing – that is, nothing, or
non-manifestation. The texts develop a symbolic reference of a vast
head, whose makeup constitutes the symbolic structure of the Universe.
This is genuine, and often quite weird, source material that requires
long effort to divine the intended meanings. It is not obvious that this
book represents a direct access to material that all the great Jewish
Masters contemplated and meditated on. Zoharic literature has been
traditionally, very expensive and hard to access. The continuing
commercial presence of Mathers’ inexpensive edition is an excellent
counterweight to the ‘Kabbalah of the Stars’ trend, indicating that
there is real material out there, if one but asks the right shop manager
Kabbalah & Jewish Mysticism
by Perle Besserman
Jewish Mysticism by Perle Besserman gives the general reader more
accessible and practical insights into this arcane spiritual path than
any other resource available. "Living an ethical life, being pure of
heart, and remaining socially integrated continue to remain the
touchstones of character for the Kabbalist," notes the author, who also
wrote the classic Kabbalah: The Way of the Jewish Mystic.
In this enlightening paperback, Besserman unfurls the different levels of the Kabbalistic universe and ponders the teachings of such spiritual masters as Rabbi Akiva, the Baal Shem Tov, Isaac Luria, Abraham Kook, and Aryeh Kaplan.She explains meditation techniques including gazing, listening, chanting, recitation of Hebrew letters, and reflection on the names of God.
Besserman sheds light on the important roles of imagination and visualization in the Kabbalistic quest for dissolving the ego and union with the Ancient of Days. She writes cogently about the teacher-disciple relationship, correspondences, the supernatural (golems, reincarnation, and spirit guides), and Kabbalah in the twenty-first century. The timeless spiritual wisdom of Jewish mysticism speaks to the contemporary yearning for devotion, unity, understanding, and transformation.

Kabbalah and Eros
by Moshe Idel
Geoffrey Hartman : "Idel, with the brilliance and learning we have come to expect, has illuminated what went into ''the culture of eros'' among a large cast of rabbbinic and kabbalistic authors. His book makes for surprising and fascinating reading."—Geoffrey Hartman, Yale University
Absorbing Perfections: Kabbalah and
by Moshe Idel
professor Gershom Scholem, who died in 1982, is regarded as the greatest
Kabbalah scholar of the 20th century. His successor and critic is Idel,
also a professor at Hebrew University and author of this densely written
treatise. In contrast to recent efforts to make Kabbalah more
accessible, Idel presents a highly specialized narrative in language
that can be grasped by only a few learned scholars. Idel demonstrates
his intellectual mastery of Kabbalah by citing both Jewish and Christian
commentators from medieval to modern times. Many of his sources are
obscure and abstruse. Seemingly in recognition of this limitation, Idel
offers six appendices in which he tries to further explain the work of
Abraham Abulafia, Isaac of Acre, Nahman of Braslav, Marsilio Ficino and
Pico della Mirandola, among others. All of these thinkers, along with
Idel, focus on the mystical aspect of the Bible as the major topic for
analysis. Idel's writing is sprinkled with foreign words and phrases
that are not translated, as well as English terms that require an
academician's expertise: anagrammatic, renomadization, crisical,
superarcanization, hypersemantic, theosophical-theurgical,
historiosophical, floruit, astromagical, extradivine, imaginaire,
intercorporal, ergetic, clinamenic, and so on. Kabbalah enthusiasts who
emphasize its experiential rather than its intellectual aspects will be
bewildered by this text, though some academic specialists may appreciate
its dizzying breadth.
Language, Eros, Being: Kabbalistic
Hermeneutics and Poetic Imagination
by Elliot Wolfson
long-awaited, magisterial study-an unparalleled blend of philosophy,
poetry, and philology-draws on theories of sexuality, phenomenology,
comparative religion, philological writings on Kabbalah, Russian
formalism, Wittgenstein, Rosenzweig, William Blake, and the very physics
of the time-space continuum to establish what will surely be a highwater
mark in work on Kabbalah. Not only a study of texts, Language, Eros,
Being is perhaps the fullest confrontation of the body in Jewish
studies, if not in religious studies as a whole.Elliot R. Wolfson
explores the complex gender symbolism that permeates Kabbalistic
literature. Focusing on the nexus of asceticism and eroticism, he seeks
to define the role of symbolic and poetically charged language in the
erotically configured visionary imagination of the medieval Kabbalists.
He demonstrates that the traditional Kabbalistic view of gender was a
monolithic and androcentric one, in which the feminine was conceived as
being derived from the masculine. He does not shrink from the negative
implications of this doctrine, but seeks to make an honest
acknowledgment of it as the first step toward the redemption of an
ancient wisdom.Comparisons with other mystical traditions-including
those in Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam-are a remarkable feature
throughout the book. They will make it important well beyond Jewish
studies, indeed, a must for historians of comparative religion, in
particular of comparative mysticism.Praise for Elliot R.
Wolfson:"Through a Speculum That Shines is an important and provocative
contribution to the study of Jewish mysticism by one of the major
scholars now working in this field."-Speculum
by Jason Shulman
|A guidebook to
using the Kabbalah to transform our consciousness in order to heal the
body, mind, and spirit
• Describes a process of unification with God and the healing implications of that process for our daily life
• Introduces four kabbalistic universes that form a topographical map of reality
• Offers a unique perspective on human consciousness and the nature of existence from a leading modern kabbalist
Kabbalistic Healing shows how the Kabbalah--the Jewish mystical path to knowing reality--can kindle the central fire in our being so that we can unite with the divine. It describes the ultimate healing possible for the human soul: an awakening to our true nature that makes our former life seem as if we have been asleep.
The Kabbalah is not an advanced study; it is the first study, because it speaks directly to our fundamental desire to know what life is about. To Shulman, the Kabbalah is the living experience of our real self, the self that is always connected to God, the self that lives in God the way a fish lives in water.
Kabbalistic Healing is about the process of unification, of joining with reality, and the implications of that process for daily life. It draws upon the author’s work at A Society of Souls, which promotes the belief that the ultimate form of healing is to create a unitive or nondual state of consciousness, integrating the healthy human ego into its proper relationship with transcendent reality. As we deepen our understanding of our true selves and enhance our ability to hold new states of consciousness, we are able not only to heal ourselves but to help heal others as well.
The Chicken Qabalah
by Lon Milo Duquette
|A unique and
humorous—and also practical—approach to the increasingly popular study
of Qabalah. This is a seriously funny book! Traditional Qabalistic (or
Cabalistic, or, indeed, Kabbalistic—read this book to find out what the
difference is. . .we know you’ve always wondered) sources tend to be a
bit, er, dry. DuQuette spices up the Qabalah and makes it come alive,
restoring the joy of learning the fundamentals of this admittedly arcane
system by using simple, amusing anecdotes and metaphors. This account,
written psuedepigraphically (fictitiously attributed to a supposed
authority), allows DuQuette as Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford to soar to
outrageous heights and, when necessary, stand apart from the silliness
to highlight the golden eggs of Qabalistic wisdom nested therein.
Sure to be a revelation to those who think that learning about the Qabalah needs to be tedious and serious, DuQuette shows that great truths can be transmitted through the medium of laughter.
The Greek Qabalah
by Kieren Barry
|This book will be of interest to a wide range of readers, from students of Ancient History and early Christianity, to Qabalists and modern magicians. Extensive notes and citations from original sources will make this authoritative work an essential reference for researchers and practitioners for years to come. Includes are appendices for tables of alphabetic symbolism, a list of authors, and a numeric dictionary of Greek words, which represents the largest collection of gematria in print.|
The Blazing Star & Jewish Kabbalah
by William Greene
|Studies of the
Kabbalah in English were virtually unknown before the “occult revival”
of the second half of the 19th century, and those that did appear were
largely dry and academic. The more astute students of the Kabbalah
recognized that it had an application outside Judeo-Christian mysticism
and related it to the wider current of the Western Mystery Tradition,
especially to Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry. A graduate of Harvard
Divinity School, William Greene was unique among his fellow Christian
writers on the Kabbalah in that he saw clearly both its significance for
Freemasonry and its application to radical thought. He prefaced his
study, first published in 1872, with a stirring account of the
significant Masonic symbol of the Blazing Star—a symbol also of liberty
of conscience and political freedom, goals that we must seek in both the
spiritual and material worlds.
Kabbalistic handbook for the Practicing Magician
by Joseph C. Lisiewski
Price to follow
practicing Magician, there is no more crucial working knowledge than the
Kabbalah. This complex structure serves as the backdrop against which
the magician's thoughts, ideas, ritual and ceremonial work are placed,

attributions, correspondences and key concepts in a 'user-friendly'
style. Until now.
And The Kabbalistic Handbook gives you even more. It includes never-before-published techniques that enables Western Magic---including Golden Dawn Magic---to work flawlessly every time!
Never again will you need to wade through voluminous chapters of many different books looking for the Kabbalistic information you need. In addition, you will have a course of instruction that will enable that knowledge to work for you as never before. The field is cleared for your main objective: the realization of your desires, manifested through properly executed ritual and ceremonial work.

modern science, contemporary Kabbalists, tarot interpreters, and a comic
book writer - to explore the Tree's meaning. Along the way, we learn
more about Kabbalah's history, texts, mystical concepts, and why this
