Show synopsis Distills a forty-year search for wisdom by one of the world's leading interpreters of the Jewish mystical tradition who shares with us the fundamental ideas and spiritual teachings of Kabbalah. In addition, Green explains how the ancient language of Kabbalah can be retooled to address the needs of our generation. Unlike other books on Kabbalah, he does this in a future-oriented context. Probing questions are designed to challenge -- and potentially change -- readers as they are encouraged to stretch to new ways of thinking with both heart and mind. -- How is the kabbalistic tradition relevant to today's seeker? -- Are the ancient and mysterious symbols of any value to us in our very different world? -- How should Kabbalah be re-fitted so that it might serve as an appropriate vehicle for a contemporary spiritual quest? -- Can this be done without destroying the soul of the tradition and while acknowledging today's reality? Written in a way that avoids overwhelming readers new to the subject or watering down the tradition to the point of trivialization, Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow will set seekers on a rewarding path to the wisdom Kabbalah has to offer -- for today and tomorrow.
