Leet: The Universal Kabbalah (2004)
The Backyard Professor’s blog entry on cool video about sound and creation (and rice and a metal sheet) re-introduced me to Leonora Leets. She has four Kabbalah books out, of which I already listed the first two earlier:
- The Secret Doctrine of the Kabbalah: Recovering the Key to Hebraic Sacred Science
- Renewing the Covenant: A Kabbalistic Guide to Jewish Spirituality
- The Kabbalah of the Soul: The Transformative Psychology and Practices of Jewish Mysticism (March 25, 2003)
- The Universal Kabbalah (September 29, 2004)
Regarding her latest, the Amazon.com reviews are not helpful. They either praise her (including Rabbi Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi, whose opinion I value) or trash her, saying that it is mostly geometry. The publisher’s description is more informative though: [The book p]resents a new understanding of the laws of cosmic manifestation through the sacred geometry of the Sabbath Star diagram. It sees to be an analysis of the Mogen David through (the history of) Kabbalah and its application to other principles.
