Adam and the Kabbalistic Trees

Revised edition

The Ladder of Mankind

This revised edition, with its new pictures and diagrams, is about a kabbalistic view of humanity. The concept of the four macrocosmic Worlds of the Divine, spiritual, psychological and physical levels is related to those within an individual. The symbolism and metaphysics of the Tree of Life and Jacob’s Ladder, combining ancient, medieval and modern views, are used to understand Adam, the archetype of humanity. Out of this study arise the processes by which an aspirant may reach the Divine realm where Self-realisation is attained.

The Way of Kabbalah

Revised Edition

A Primer

The Way of Kabbalah, with its enriched diagrams, opens up the inner teaching of Kabbalah. Using the Bible, metaphysics and esoteric psychology, it sets out a way for the aspirant to approach the path of development and Self-realisation. The relationship between the body, psyche and spirit to the Divine is shown in the context of the kabbalistic tradition and contemporary working methods. Various interior processes are observed as consciousness rises through the seven levels of the mind into the Halls of Heaven. From here a wider and deeper view of Existence, and our place in it, can be seen.

Kabbalah and Exodus

Revised Edition

Allegory of Evolution

This book shows that the story of Exodus is also an allegory of the human situation. The inner meaning of the Exodus drama is an escape from bondage. The Israelites’ crossing of the Desert is about the soul’s journey from being bound by habit and instinct into becoming an integrated individual, even as the slave-minded Israelites become an independent unified people. Drawing upon scripture, Jewish folklore and Kabbalah, the author lays out the various stages of development to be taken. This revised edition will be of interest to scholars of the Bible, psychologists, and those on the path of spirituality.

A Kabbalistic View of History

An Esoteric Dimension

A Kabbalistic View of History describes the story of humanity and the purpose of Existence in terms of kabbalistic principles. As evolution moves from savagery to civilisation, so the vegetable, animal and human levels of mankind emerge. The Gilgulim, or Wheels of Reincarnation, teach young souls how to live on Earth, while their elders either dominate or illuminate the course of history. Cosmic cycles are also taken into account as they influence historic periods, while critical choices generate personal and collective karma. The development of humanity is monitored by Providence within a vast Divine plan.
