'This book traces its most profound, thought-provoking and imaginative themes, including: creation myths; the tree of life and the ten sefirot; the significance of the Hebrew alphabet; the link with the Garden of Eden and the mind of Adam; and the mystic sexual union which can contribute to cosmic well-being. Coverage is also given to the origins of Kabbalah in medieval Provence and Spain, to its greatest texts, especially The Zohar (Book of Radiance), and to Kabbalah's continuing popularity in modern times.
Kabbalah Inspirations captures the character of this fascinating system of ideas and practices and opens up its mysteries to a whole new audience - that is, everyone inspired by the profound truths and poetic beauties of mysticism.
