Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this religious self-help manual, David Aaron … taps the great mystical power of the Kabbalah to offer insights into everyday life with love and power."
—Publishers Weekly

"It's not just celebrities Diane Ladd, Roseanne, Madonna, Kirk Douglas, and Jeff Goldblum. All types of people, Jews and non-Jews alike, are being drawn to Kabbalah, the Jewish mystical tradition that blends astrology, astral travel, numerology, physics, psychology, reincarnation, and magic. Aaron offers a simplified application of the esoteric teachings to modern situations."
—The Washington Post

"Studying with David Aaron, I never cease to be impressed with his ability to entertain and inspire while bringing to life the beautiful, ancient myseries of the Torah and Kabbalah."
—Kirk Douglas

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this religious self-help manual, David Aaron, who is the head of Jerusalem's Isrealight Institute as well as a rabbi and pianist, taps the great mystical power of the Kabbalah to offer insights into living everyday life with love and power. In a number of meditations on the Kabbalah and the spiritual life, Aaron teaches that "to embark on the spiritual path is to seek to explore the very depths of heart and soul to learn to receive their unified light." Aaron believes that the spiritual path is not a path apart from one's everyday life. The key to life, according to Aaron, is love, and he believes that love, once it is received, can motivate the world to acts of kindness and justice. Using illustrations from Torah and Kabbalah as well as anecdotes from his own life, Aaron recounts the path of Kabbalah to personal transformation. At the end of each chapter, he offers questions to guide reflection on the matters discussed in the chapter. While Aaron's meditations are grounded solidly in the Jewish Kabbalistic tradition, they are generic enough (e.g., "The essence of life is love") to appeal to a broad audience. (Sept.)
