In The Kabbalah of Light: Ancient Practices to Ignite the Imagination and Illuminate the Soul, Shainberg provides a step-by-step guide that helps one tap into the subconscious to activate powers of manifestation and creativity.
How can the ancient Jewish mystical traditions help us answer our most urgent questions and transform our lives today? In the Kabbalah of Light, Catherine Shainberg provides a step-by-step guide that helps readers tap into the subconscious to activate powers of manifestation and creativity using a practice passed down over eight centuries. The book, and Shainberg’s method, which she calls Saphire Imagery, is based on the first Kabbalah of Light, originated by Rabbi Isaac the Blind of Posquieres, France (1160 to 1235).
The Sheshets of Gerona, Italy, passed the Rabbi’s knowledge and practices in unbroken succession through the generations. Shainberg’s book draws on this ancient work to help readers discover their path to transformation. The Kabbalah of Light includes 159 short experiential exercises and practices to begin dialoguing with the subconscious through images. Through inner gazing, readers will access images, dreams, and imagination in new ways that serve as both a creative force and a direct path to transformation.
Beginning this productive dialogue with our inner world leads us to uncover our soul’s purpose and manifest our dreams in the outer world. Fast and simple, the practices can help readers discover their areas of “stuckness,” release past traumas and ancestral patterns, free the imagination, and open the way to the bliss promised by ancient traditions.
