Books about the Kabbalah and other Esoteric Subjects
An Illustrated Introduction to the Esoteric Heart of Jewish Mysticism (Hardcover) by Tim Dedopulos. The Kabbalah is often considered the most important and far-reaching phase of Jewish mysticism. The unique map of consciousness central to Kabbalah is the so-called Tree of Life, which aims to integrate all aspects of ourselves: mind, body, and spirit. For centuries it has been considered too sacred for the general public. Now it is becoming widely known and widely studied. Here, in one volume, is an introduction to its perennial wisdom.
Kabbalah's most famous symbol, the Tree of Life, has become the organizing principle behind our human efforts to understand the world. Using Hermann Haindl's lush depiction of the Tree of Life, Rachel Pollack examines the message behind this ancient symbol. She takes a non-denominational approach - drawing upon unusual sources such as tribal and shamanic traditions, 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 esoteric tradition has sprung up again in the twenty-first century.
|Alchemy of the WordAlchemy of the Word is a study of the literary, philosophical, and cultural ramifications of Cabala during the Renaissance. Important intellectual figures from 1490 to 1690 are considered, including Agrippa, Dee, Spenser, Shakespeare, Browne, and Milton; Cabala's more recent impact is also discussed. Cabala, a hermeneutic style of Biblical commentary of Jewish origin, is based on the notion that, along with an inscribed Decalogue, Moses received a secret, oral supplement that provides a symbolic, allegorical, and moral qualification of the literal law of religion.|
