Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is evidence of the claim that what we call "energy work" is a prescriptive and not a descriptive process, that it works with sensation and imagination, with aspects of the body that we are no longer used to feeling to enact deeper change. I am grateful to have received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for this review. Devi Stern has presented a system that weaves traditional Jewish elements with a New Age system of energy work to give an infinitely creative wellspring of potential a framework and filter. That is the value of this book: for someone who leans toward Kabbalah as a system, to the myth and mysticism of Judaism, there is a structure for interacting with the depths of the body on those terms. To those who do not lean toward the Kabbalah, there is still value in this book that it can give someone ways to think with energy work and personalizing it to a tradition they may work with, or to shape their practice to whatever their idiosyncrasies might be.
