CLIMBING THE TREE OF LIFE
A Manual of Practical Magickal Qabalah
By David Rankine


Qabalah is a dynamic system of esoteric philosophy that underlies most of the modern magickal traditions. It explores the nature of divinity, the universe, the human soul, creation, the function of life and a whole range of other philosophical and metaphysical subjects. The Qabalah offers the opportunity to follow a well-defined and multi-layered map of magickal ritual, consciousness expansion, self-integration and balance.

Subjects covered in this book include
– The Development of the Qabalah through History
– The Sephiroth, their symbols and temples
– The Divisions of the Tree of Life, including the Pillars, Worlds and Triads
– The Tetragrammaton or Unpronounceable Name of God
– The Shekinah and the Divine Feminine in Qabalah
– The Parts of the Human Soul and Qabalistic Doctrines on Reincarnation
– Qabalistic Ritual and Ritual Techniques
– Meditations on many aspects of the Tree of Life
– Applying Qabalah in Daily Life.
