CLIMBING THE TREE OF LIFE: A Manual of Practical Magickal Qabalah
[Second Edition, Revised & Expanded, 2022]
By David Rankine

Qabalah is a dynamic system of esoteric philosophy that 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. Qabalah offers a challenge to anyone who chooses to practice it, for it presents a path to the infinite, which unfolds conditioning and challenges views, whilst at the same time reinforcing all of the best qualities in the student.

The success of Qabalah is demonstrated by the effectiveness of its practices, and the way that it has come to permeate so much of modern magical practice.  It provides a panoramic worldview and one can practice Qabalah with or without including ritual practice in your life. As with all other aspects of Qabalah, the choice of how you climb the Tree of Life is up to you.

  • The history and development of Qabalah
  • The Tree of Life: The Four Worlds, Sephiroth, Three Pillars, Triads and Seven Palaces
