ÂThis lucid book of deep healing is a brilliant contribution to the spiritual literature bridging Eastern and Western thought. . . Â - Lama Surya Das - Founder of Dzogchen Center and author of Awakening the Buddha Within
This is the first -- and long-awaited -- book on Kabbalistic Healing from the spiritual teacher who first developed this work, Jason Shulman. Combining the traditional theistic approach with an innovative nondual perspective, it seeks to bring us to awakening and God through the power of being completely human. Making our former life seem as if we have been asleep, "Kabbalistic Healing: A Path to an Awakened Soul" (Inner Traditions) awakens us to our true nature. With chapters on The Healed Ego, Prayer, the meaning of the unconscious, and philosophical essays on the meaning of Reality, "Kabbalistic Healing" takes the reader on a journey of enlightenment, a journey where doing God's Will and liberation are one and the same thing.
Heralded as a master who transcends the narrowness of academic Kabbalah and the superficiality of popular Kabbalah, Shulman injects new life into this ancient tradition by integrating it with Buddhist meditation, quantum physics, and 20th century psychology.
Using the Kabbalah -- the Jewish mystical path to knowing reality -- as a springboard, this book guides us on how to transform our consciousness in order to heal the body, mind, and spirit.
Drawing upon the authorÂs work at A Society of Souls (a school dedicated to not only helping ourselves heal, but helping others heal as well), "Kabbalistic Healing" illuminates how we can get closer to ourselves, others, and the divine. Having the unique distinction of being trained in both the Buddhist as well as the Kabbalistic tradition, Shulman has inspired and transformed thousands over three decades. Now with this new book, he looks forward to sharing his vision with thousands more.
ÂThis is a must-read for anyone who wishes to learn the essence of kabbalistic teachings in the hands of a master of spiritual and psychological development.Â - Rabbi David A. Cooper, author of God Is a Verb -
