KABBALAH AND THE POWER OF DREAMING: Awakening the Visionary Life

Catherine Shainberg, Author . Inner Traditions $14.95 (205p) ISBN 978-1-59477-047-0

Shainberg, a Ph.D. in psychology and student of the renowned Kabbalist Colette Aboulker- Muscat, offers not so much a book about the Kabbalah as one from the very essence of the traditional Jewish mystical text. Through our dreams, she teaches, we strive for the oneness that lies at the heart of Kabbalah—indeed at the heart of most religions. This universal search for wholeness becomes Shainberg's primary theme, making this a book for anyone seeking a deeper sense of self. Her personal story of spiritual quest and her references to a life that, at times, was less than ideal make up most of the fascinating introduction. Her candor quickly establishes a trust between author and reader, drawing readers in just enough to take a chance on the esoteric practice of unlocking dreams. Her premise, though simple in theory, requires much devotion in practice but little in the way of physical equipment—merely an armchair and a handful of notebooks. Throughout, Shainberg presents a gentle guide to techniques for merging our present conscious selves with the past and future contained within our subconscious. The result: a more unified, creative, complete individual. Like Julia Cameron in The Artist's Way , Shainberg offers the tools to ignite a deep-seated creativity, one that feeds not only the mind, but the soul. (Apr.)
