Your body is the place where heaven and earth meet.

The greatest spiritual achievement is not transcending the body but joining body and spirit together. But to do this, you must break through assumptions that draw boundaries around the Infinite and wake up to the body as the site of holiness itself.

This is an excellent extension of Michaelson's wonderful book, Everything is God. What's interesting about Michaelson's writing is that it's meat and potatoes traditional Kabbalah sort of masquerading as radical. I don't mean this critically.

This book is about making sacred every activity that one is part of each moment of the day. Each day we can be bogged down in the many tasks we must perform. It is easy to lose track of what is important, and the beauty that is around us. The author does this through Zen mindfulness practices and reciting blessings at key points throughout the day.

For someone beginning in Kabbalah this might be a nice introduction but I found it way too practical without the background to understand the why of the practices. It does include specific meditations for all of our major daily activities which are clear and easy to follow so again if you are looking for a simple place to begin, this book might be the ticket.
