Kabbalistic Healing: A Path to an Awakened Soul
A guidebook to using the Kabbalah to transform our consciousness in order to heal the body, mind, and spirit
• Describes a process of unification with God and the healing implications of that process for our daily life
• Introduces four kabbalistic universes that form a topographical map of reality
• Offers a unique perspective on human consciousness and the nature of existence from a leading modern kabbalist
Kabbalistic Healing shows how the Kabbalah--the Jewish mystical path to knowing reality--can kindle the central fire in our being so that we can unite with the divine. It describes the ultimate healing possible for the human soul: an awakening to our true nature that makes our former life seem as if we have been asleep. The Kabbalah is not an advanced study; it is the first study, because it speaks directly to our fundamental desire to know what life is about.
To Shulman, the Kabbalah is the living experience of our real self, the self that is always connected to God, the self that lives in God the way a fish lives in water. Kabbalistic Healing is about the process of unification, of joining with reality, and the implications of that process for daily life. It draws upon the author’s work at A Society of Souls, which promotes the belief that the ultimate form of healing is to create a unitive or nondual state of consciousness, integrating the healthy human ego into its proper relationship with transcendent reality. As we deepen our understanding of our true selves and enhance our ability to hold new states of consciousness, we are able not only to heal ourselves but to help heal others as well.
“This lucid book of deep healing is a brilliant contribution to the spiritual literature bridging Eastern and Western thought. Shulman’s bigger view unifies seeking and being-there, path and goal, transcendence and immanence, with the joy of a true master.”
—Lama Surya Das, founder of the Dzogchen Center and author of Awakening the Buddha Within)
“Jason Shulman brilliantly integrates a deep psychological component with a profound understanding of the non-dual, absolute unity of the Divine Nature in a way that raises the reader’s soul to the highest potential of awareness. While traditional teachings tend to demean the ego-self, Shulman shows us the importance of our gift of self-awareness and how to come to peace with ourselves. Thus he leads readers to evoke a healing from our sense of fractured separation into a wholeness of being that has compassion for who we are and what we are. This is a must-read for anyone who wishes to learn the essence of kabbalistic teachings in the hands of a master of spiritual and psychological development.” —Rabbi David A. Cooper, author of God Is a Verb
“Here is once and future wisdom as we meet the Jewish mystical tradition in its revelatory mapping of the nature of reality. Here too are practices that bring the reader closer to the nondual state of consciousness and awareness of the integral relationship between all things. Taken seriously, this profound work can only charge the spirit as it illumines the mind and heart.”
—Jean Houston, Ph.D., author of Jump Time: Shaping Your Future in a World of Radical Change)
“Jason Shulman is a true adept of the inner teachings. He offers a very sophisticated and dynamic account of what happens between the Kabbalah and the great, luminous transparency. To engage with Jason Shulman’s mind is to enter into the reality where true healing can occur.”
—Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, leader of the Jewish Renewal Movement
“Kabbalistic Healing is a great book about discovering wisdom within each of us. At a time when everyone in contemporary society is experiencing an information glut, what’s missing is a deeper understanding of life. Jason Shulman provides the reader with wisdom and insight for life’s journey.”

"I am very excited to say that this book has validated so much of what I have come to realize to be SO on my personal journey but never had the words to express it. It not only helped me identify core beliefs that kept me from receiving the Light it also helped me transend them. Healing is in the Knowing. This book has inspired me to inquire a bit further into Kabbalah and its teachings. If you are seeking answers I suggest you give it a read you may be amazed by how much you are already aware of."
