A friend of mine switched his spiritual inclinations from BK to Kabbalah and he told me a little about it. He seemed happy as a result of the changeover. He also said some stuff about winning a chess competition, which he attributed to studying Kabbalah - something about reading some of the scriptures in their original language (without understanding it).

I was kind of intrigued.

Having read the book, I'm still a little intrigued, but enough to make me want to read books in a language I don't unde

For years, I have been studying the Kabbalah, often thought of as the book of Jewish mysticism. That's sort of like calling Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" a book on the mysticism of the kitchen. Both are books explaining intricate and complex topics--and both give examples, tips, tell stories with the hope of enhancing your ability to nurture yourself and your life.

Reading the Kabbalah will not make you a mystic any more than reading "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" wi

I found this utterly inspiring, and being that I am anti all controlling religions, this rang true to me on every level. I followed up with the Power of Kabbalah, and found it very interesting that most of the founding work or writings of Kabbalah was written prior to any of today's religions and is the basis of all of them, and also foretold, (4000 years ahead of its time, no less) most of the scientific findings of the last 4-5 centuries. Superb stuff. Will certainly lead me to further reading ...more

Another crap from Kabbalah.com their teaching have nothing to do with authentic jewish mysticism and kabbalah.
My suggestion do not waste your time and money on this crap.
Their main aim is to get as much money out of your pocket by brainwashing you, There are many complaints about kabbalah centre in USA on the internet, as well on the inconsitency of their books, if you are interested in kabbalah, go for Aryeh Kaplan books, he is one of authentic true master and teacher of Kabbalah.

good intro to Kabbalah but felt that it was stuff most of us are living by anyways. But its a good reminder considering we could always use a little reminder from time to time.

This book really allows you to understand the Kaballah without having to drink the water or wear the bracelet. Honestly, good insight - usable in everyday life.

Some ideas/philosophies I found I didn't agree with and some were cool to think about.
