Here is a brief description of each book now published.

Path of a KabbalistTHE PATH OF A KABBALIST
An Autobiography

In his autobiography, Halevi sets out his spiritual journey amid the drama of life, which he perceives as a process of development, indicating how his unfolding fate is part of a Providential scheme. This book traces the story of how an artist and poet became a writer about and a teacher of Kabbalah. Many of the illustrations are the author’s own work. So too are several of the diagrams, which are a modern interpretation of the Tradition. The Path of a Kabbalist is also a first-hand account of how Halevi’s books came into being and inspired many people and study groups worldwide.

ancient tradition of Kabbalah. The influence of
the cosmos on humanity, at both the individual

The Anointed

THE ANOINTED

A Kabbalistic Novel

The Anointed is the story about the destiny of
one man and the fate of those around him. The
setting is the Spain of 1492 when the Inquisition
seeks to eliminate the leader of an esoteric
group of Christians, Jews and Muslims. Don
Immanuel is the pivot of the plot, in which
he and those close to him are caught up in an
archetypal battle between good and evil. The
symbolism of events and each character gives
insights into what lies behind life and a wider
and kabbalistic perspective on history.

Psycology and KabbalahPSYCHOLOGY AND KABBALAH (Revised Edition)

Kabbalistic Psychology

The psyche and its place and purpose in the
Universe are the subject of this book, which
uses both kabbalistic and modern psychological
models to position humanity in the Divine
scheme. In the process of incarnation, the
issue of consciousness is crucial as the person
develops through the stages of ego and
individuation into an awareness of collective
levels. Fate, destiny and spiritual evolution are
explored, leading to the Path of Inner Ascent
to the Divine Realm. Many new pictures and
diagrams in this revised edition add to a deeper
understanding of the psyche.

Adam and the Kabbalistic TreesADAM AND THE KABBALISTIC TREES (Revised edition)

A Kabbalistic View 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.

Kabbalah and ExodusKabbalah and Exodus (Revised edition)

Allegory of Development

also an allegory of the human situation. The
inner meaning of the Exodus drama is 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 slaveminded
Israelites became 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
