Kabbalah of Prayer — Sacred Sounds and the Soul’s Journey

Kabbalah of Prayer book cover

In this remarkable, groundbreaking book, Shulamit Elson writes with eloquence and authority about our soul’s journey, our place in the universe, and our relationship to God through prayer.

This is a practical book that gives individual exercises as well as offering help on meeting specific challenges, including spiritual struggles, feelings of meaninglessness, and harsh self-judgment, as well as illness, fear, and anxiety.

“No mystical tradition better explores the intersecting mysteries of human character and divine presence than the medieval Kabbalah and no writer offers a better primer in its contemporary practice and understanding than Shulamit Elson.”
Bruce Chilton, Director, Institute of Advanced Theology
Bernard Iddings Bell, Professor of Religion, Bard College

“Accessible as well as deeply engaging. This wonderful book is universal in its expression and appeal and is of value to followers of any spiritual path.”
Swami Atamarupananda, Ramakrishna Order, Vivekananda Retreat, Ridgely

“One of the clearest distillations of Jewish spiritual teaching I have ever read. Rather than shine light on Kabbalah from outside; Shulamit Elson shines a light that illuminates the Kabbalah from within.” Rabbi Jonathon Kligler.

Brooklyn Bodhisattvas ~ A Book of Visions and Kabballistic Poetry

Brooklyn Bodhisattvas – A Book of Visions and Kabballistic Poetry is a collection of 64 exceptional poems written by Shulamit Elson.

Shulamit’s poetry brings to written form the wisdom and enlightened vision of her spiritual teachings. (The title poem of this book is included in the anthology Broken Lands, published by New York University Press.)

“These poems are a joy to read. They bring you home, again and again, to truth you knew but forgot. They’re about living in what is true and real. The goal is daunting, and yet each poem is a refreshing, familiar taste of being there, a place one already knows. It’s not only possible but simple and within reach. Shulamit’s voice is, wise, aware, often dispassionate, funny. It hits dead center and then goes on. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”Anonymous

“Brooklyn Bodhisattvas has to have been composed by a Bodhisattva. It’s spiritually uplifting and visionary lines illuminate the place you have been lifted from. Magnificent!”Harold Akrongold
