I am a long time meditator, but have been doing a Buddhist type of meditation for some time now, and felt the need to explore meditations that would help me to connect to God. Kabbalah strives to do just that. I'm not Jewish, but come from a Christian background. At any rate, the author apparently felt a lot like I do at one point, having gotten a lot from eastern meditation but also feeling that she would like to be connecting to the God she worships more closely. She has been teaching Jewish meditation now for quite some time and speaks from a place of authority. Her descriptions of how to do the meditations are very clear and easy to follow. Some of them, if you are a seeker, you may have been doing already without knowing they were official forms of meditation. That is to say, many of these meditations are ways of praying that you may or may not have used. But at any rate, all these meditations are definitely going to help you to realize the presence of God in your life and in your soul. Incidentally, if you want a little more in depth description of the theories or beliefs of Kabbalah, this book is not for that purpose. This is a book of practice, practice you can do without really understanding every little detail of the Kabbalist school of thought. Basically if you're any kind of monotheist, if you believe in one true living God, and you want to try to become closer to that Source, then you should benefit from these meditations. The unknown details are relatively unimportant. But if you're interested in those Kabbalistic details, see my book recommendation.
