At its core this book provides a programme of progressive meditations and exercises designed to aid the student's psycho-spiritual development. It is clear, lucid and readable, demonstrating the author's ability and enthusiasm as a teacher. As readers we are never bombarded with abstruse theorums or tongue twisting terminologies. The emphasis is on actual experience through work. There is no quick fix in relation to awakening and directing the Secret Fire. The book enlarges and expands on material found in Dr. Regardie's classics 'The Middle Pillar' and 'The One Year Manual'and re-invigorates the student of Hermetic Kabbalah at all levels.

A Balanced System of Development 21 Feb. 2007
By Time Keeper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kabbalah for Health and Wellness is similar in many ways to The Kabbalistic Handbook for the Practicing Magician by Joseph Lisiewski. I say this because even a cursory reading of it shows that the two are philosophically similar. In what looks like his second book, Mark Stavish gives a take on Kabbalah that is simple, direct, and above all, practical, just as is Lisiewski's book. The material explores how to work with the basic ideas presented in the Sepher Yetzirah: the Cube of Space, the Tree of Life, fundamental associations, and basic Path Working. In addition, he rounds out his presentation with the Middle Pillar exercise, making it relevant to his system of thought and expereince. And all this to emphasize the essential necessity of being able to demonstrate the usefulness of these ideas in the material world. Like Lisiewski's book too, Stavish insists that too many works on Kabbalah are concerned with spiritual fantasies at the expense of real world benefits - making our lives healthier, happier, and more useful. He further advocates that healing physical and psychological illnesses is one of the most direct, concrete, and simple ways anyone can begin to prove to themselves and others the reality of magic. In other words, he gives ways in which the efficacy of magic can be demonstrated. Stavish's emphasis on 'subconscious synthesis' ("subjective synthesis" as Lisiewski calls it in his three books) and developing a personal attunement to the tradition one is working in rather than simply layering it on a mish-mash of ill conceived New Age clap-trap, is something everyone needs to hear and understand if they want to make real progress in their WORK.

My recommendation: get this books, study it carefully, and apply what it says. In fact, if you think of it, get Lisiewski's too. Both are intensely practical books that WORK. You won't be sorry you did.

An infinitely practical vade mecum for Kabbalistic healing work 3 Mar. 2007
By Powwowdoctor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kabbalah for Health & Wellness

From the Foreward by Colleen Deatsman:

"Mark Stavish is a fine teacher and an excellent writer. He breathes new life into the dry pages of ancient wisdom and finds ways to frame the antiquated in such a way that it is instantly useful to practitioners in the twenty-first century."

This is an excellent book for those who want to pursue a healing way based solidly upon Western Kabbalistic methods. As Deatsman writes, Stavish takes otherwise dry, obscure archaic theories and writings and lifts them out of the realm of the obtuse.

The healing methods presented in this book are very down to earth and come with enough detailed explanations so that the would-be practitioner will know why s/he is to do a certain thing, or not. However, the explanations, thankfully, do not run into overkill, that would otherwise make one's eyes glaze over.

Kabbalah is not a simple subject. And somehow Stavish finds a way of making this body of complex material accessible to the average person. That's an effort which cannot be sneezed at, as anyone who has tried to tackle the material of the Zohar can attest. What's more, taking such raw Kabbalistic material and trying to find practical ways in which to apply it is rather difficult without a scholar/mage at one's elbow.

Consider this work as the next best thing to having a well seasoned adept at your side.

All of Mark Stavish's writings are imbued with a sense of humility, compassion, and service to his fellow man (and woman!). It is rare to see all of these traits combined with genuine scholarly aptitude and a clear, unobtuse writing style.

An excellent book and a unique book in this area. 22 Feb. 2010
By Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I first opened and read the book. I was struck by the uniqueness of this book. It is the only book I know of that focusses in any depth using the Kabbalah for healing only. While there are a massive amounts of kabbalah books on path working for groups for the sole purpose of intiation, etc. This book uses the kabbalah in a much needed approach for promoting healing on every level. It provides a strong frame work of lessons which builds upon each other in order to prepare the student for using the kabbalah in a practical way for healing. It lays out each path of the tree of life and what type of healing can be gained from each one. The only book besides this one that approaches the Kabbalah from a "what the paths can do" from a practical level and very superficial perspective on healing is the book called "Magical States of Consciousness by Melita Denning and Osborne Phillips" which is out of print. Stavish gives in depth information on what level of the enegetic body interacts with each other during the healing process. He talks about the kabbalah's cube of space, how to use the hebrew letters within the energy body to promote healing, etc. I can't love this book enough. I highly recommend it.

Remarkable! 8 Oct. 2013
By P. Mcgaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have many books, and to say this is one of ,if not the favorite, is a lot to say. Normally when I get a book on spirituality it lacks the exercises and practicality to take me out of the armchair scholar category. Not so with this book. It includes exercises from start to finish that are simple,interesting, appealing and practical. For instance, he gives a purification practice and explains that to do a spiritual practice without first purifying yourself is like pouring clean water into a dirty vessel. Without a purification practice, you would become cleaner over time, but it really is like taking the scenic route to enlightenment. It slows you down quite a bit. Mark includes a wealth of information about healing using the Hebrew letters. It's worth the price for that information alone. I can't think of a single other book with such a practical application. Finally, it's easier to progress beyond the armchair scholar phase!
This could be the last spiritual book you'll ever need.
