Publisher Comments:

Since medieval times, the mystical tradition of Kabbalah was restricted to qualified men over forty—because it was believed that only the most mature and pious could grasp its complexity and profound, life-changing implications. More recently, Kabbalah nearly disappeared—as most of its practitioners perished in the Holocaust. In the national bestseller God Is a Verb, this powerful spiritual tradition, after centuries of secrecy and near-extinction, is explained clearly by one of its most prominent teachers.

Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How do we get there? These questions have fueled Kabbalists for nearly a millennium. Rabbi David A. Cooper is the first to bring this obscure and difficult tradition to a mainstream audience in a way that gently leads us to the heart of the subject, showing us how to transform profound teachings into a meaningful personal experience—and appreciate fully this great mystical process we know as God.

Synopsis:

Explains the ancient Jewish mystical tradition of the Kabbalah to modern readers and applies it to the stresses and challenges of everyday life, with the help of evocative stories, point-by-point teachings, and exercises for beginners. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Written by the rabbi who authored the audiobook series "The Mystical Kabbalah", this book brings Kabbalah to a wide audience, infusing an ancient tradition with new life and popularizing its ideas among an entirely new generation.

About the Author

Rabbi David A. Cooper studied mystical Judaism in Jerusalem's Old City for more than eight years, and has authored several books on meditation, spiritual retreats, and Jewish mystical practice. He also recorded the bestselling audiotape series The Mystical Kabbalah, and along with his wife, Shoshana, directs the Heart of Stillness Hermitage near Boulder, Colorado.

Joel Schipper, December 19, 2010 (view all comments by Joel Schipper)
excellent source of 'practical jewish mysticism' applicable to your life, today. You can read this book in most any place, opening it at random. The beginning is a short biographical journey of how David Cooper got to the place where he began receiving this wisdom. Especially applicable to those interested in "Jewish Renewal."
