Book Synopsis

Many people study and practice the Kabbalah for years. The concepts can certainly help people spiritually, and some people also use Kabbalah concepts as the basis for making talismans and doing other forms of magick.

But there is another aspect of the Kabbalah that is frequently overlooked: making it relevant to your daily life. We don't need to design and charge talismans daily. What we do need is our health. And on the occasions when were not well, we need ways to return to health. Does the Kabbalah have any solutions to this daily need? Indeed it does!

In Kabbalah for Health & Wellness, Mark Stavish provides a unique look at the Kabbalah that dispenses with unwieldy complications and cuts to the core of the matter. The result is an excellent resource for beginning to advanced Kabbalists as well as energy healers.

Based on Tradition Easy to Use

This work is firmly based on Kabbalistic traditions and sources, but it is presented so clearly that anyone can use it. It is filled with exercises, rituals and techniques you can use to enhance your health and aid in healing others. It begins with Kabbalistic techniques of prayer, meditation and ritual, fully explaining each, including their similarities and differences. You'll learn how to effectively use these three basic techniques.

Then you'll learn how to actually put such things as the famed Tree of Life to practical use as a means to balance the body's energies, for it is in balance that you will find health.

Another rarely used key to Kabbalistic healing is the Hebrew alphabet. Unique diagrams show where the letters are associated with the body and the energy paths within the body. Techniques aregiven showing you how to visualize the letter on the associated body part for healing. For example, the letter Ayin is associated with the liver and the Samekh with the stomach. The techniques shared reveal how you can use this information to help yourself or work on healing others.

Pathworking and Healing

One of the crowning features of Kabbalistic practice is Pathworking astrally traveling through the Tree of Life. But what good is this practice? A simple chart illustrates the associations between the paths, astrology and parts of the body. The 29th path is associated with Pisces, the legs and feet. Work on this path for healing problems in this area. For problems with the back, work on the 20th path which is associated with Virgo. Each path is described and methods of doing pathworking for healing are given.
