Qabalah is a dynamic system of esoteric philosophy that underlies most of the modern magickal traditions. It explores the nature of divinity, the niverse, the human soul, creation, the function of life and a whole range of other philosophical and metaphysical subjects. The Qabalah offers the opportunity to follow a well-defined and multi-layered map of magickal ritual, consciousness expansion, self-integration and balance.

Subjects covered in this book include: – The Development of the Qabalah through History – The Sephiroth, their symbols and temples – The Divisions of the Tree of Life, including the Pillars, Worlds and Triads – The Tetragrammaton or Unpronounceable Name of God – The Shekinah and the Divine Feminine in Qabalah – The Parts of the Human Soul and Qabalistic Doctrines on Reincarnation – Qabalistic Ritual and Ritual Techniques – Meditations on many aspects of the Tree of Life – Applying Qabalah in Daily Life.

Extracts from Reviews

“My friend suggested this book, Climbing the Tree of Life, and I have thanked him heartily. It is a concise, readable and engaging book on a very hard topic to approach, which covered not only the topics I wanted to investigate, but also suggested other related topics that I would otherwise have ignored. As an initiate of OTO I know this is a book which will serve me well for many years both for quick reference and deeper insights. I am much obliged to the author.” J. Sef Salem, Amazon Reviewer

“Qabalah, or Kabballah or whichever way you choose to spell it continued to be a painful experience for me until I bought and read this book. Rankine’s take on it shows that he has done his research, but not only through books and journals, through hard work in the system itself.
The book gives all the theory you could ever hope for. It gives practical examples and exercises and it gives insights that I could only vaguely glimpse in other books on the subject.”  Jonathan LVX, Amazon Reviewer

“The GD, the OTO, SOL and too many more to mention – all teach and study the Qabalah. It has and continues to be a very important part of the work we do and the way we perceive symbolism in our ceremonies and meditations. Rankine has offered us many exciting books to date, but none to the standard of this volume. Excellent work.” Little Blue Flame, Amazon Reviewer

“This book provides the reader with a solid basis in Western Mystery Qabalah. In many ways it could be called a “work book” in addition to a “manual” and although it is a primer, it contains far more than just the basics. Its a manual as it provides the information and the mechanics on how the qabalah fits together, its a workbook as it also provides the reader with many excellent exercises and meditations. Its a solid primer on the subject as it contains all the basics, but it is also much more as it contains some rarely seen qoutations from sources other than the obvious.” Mermo Frager, Amazon Reviewer

“This book is a great reference, though. It has some interesting Gematria and some good observations on the Mystical Titles for each Sephirah. If you are thinking about buying this book, go ahead; you won’t be disappointed.”  Steven Hasting, Amazon Reviewer

“Let me start off by saying that I have many books on the Qabalah. For a time, I had all but given up on truly understanding what QBL is really all about. The books I had read previously were full of the usual you come to expect, but no insightful information that actually moved beyond rote associations and attributes — until this fabulous book!” Evie, Amazon Reviewer

“Having read several of Mr. Rankine’s books in the past, I was expecting yet another intelligently-written, solid book on Qabalah. I found it in this book. Mr. Rankine gives complete correspondences for each Sephirah, and although he differs from many traditional writers vis a vis certain attributions, he explains his reasons cogently.” Dawnie, Amazon Reviewer
