The Mystical Qabalah is one of Dion Fortune’s most well-known works. Bringing together traditional Jewish thought with both Eastern and Western philosophy, and insights from esoteric Christianity, this was one of the first books to present the Western Mysteries to readers in a clear and comprehensive manner. This classic text sets out the principles of the Kabbalah, its symbolism; its relationship to Tarot, Alchemy and other facets of western occultism, and shows its practical applications in, for example, a lucid discussion of pathworkings and how to build them. Anyone approaching the Kabbalah and its prominence within the Western Mystery Tradition and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn will find The Mystical Qabalah of immense value, providing the reader with a detailed account of the Tree of Life and the Sephiroth. This edition contains additional, supplementary material by Dion Fortune and other members of the Society of the Inner Light.
