Adam and the Kabbalistic Tree.

York Beach, Maine: Samuel Weiser, (1997). Reprint. Softcover. Octavo. 334pp. Glossy printed card covers. Index, b&w illustrations, glossary. Z'ev ben Shimon Halevi (Warren Kenton) is from an English Sephardic family and has spent over forty years studing the Kabbalah, in particular the Toledano Tradition, that developed in early medieval Spain and France (taking it's name from the Spanish city of Toledo). From the publisher: "Adam and the Kabbalistic Tree is a study of human beings as seen by contemporary Kabbalists. After a brief exposition of the Tree of Life, the mystical tool of Kabbalah, the author sets out in modern terms how eternal principles operate throughout the four Worlds present in a human being. Beginning with the body, the process and laws of biology are related Kabbalistically, so that students can see the connection between body and psyche. This is followed by a deatiled study of the anatomy of the psyche, the ancient and modern approaches to which prepare the reader for an examination of the Soul. The latter part of the book is concerned with the awakening of the Soul and its growing consciousness of the upper Kabbalistic Worlds of Creation and Emanation. The conclusion describes human progress into the realm of the Spirit of the Presence of the Divine." Spine slightly faded, otherwise, a tight, unmarked near Fine copy. Item #69927
