By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 8 Sept. 2002
Format: Paperback
Symbols have always been used in the mystical tradition to express spiritual truths that cannot be properly expressed in words. The founders of the Qabalah created a particularly elegant system of symbols, numbers and the figure of the Tree of Life to convey their insights.
The word “skrying” means “to see” or “observe” and refers to the type of clairvoyance where use is made of mirrors, crystals, water in a bowl (like Galadriël in Lord of the Rings) or the tarot, to concentrate and focus psychic abilities in order to receive and interpret visions in the normal state of waking consciousness.
Regardie published this work in 1932 as an easy albeit comprehensive guide to the complex system of the Qabalah and to serve as a key to its symbolism. The primary symbol of this ancient Hebrew system is the tree of life that has been used for centuries as a means to study the nature of the cosmos and the qualities of the psyche.
With its emphasis on direct experience by meditating on the paths of wisdom, this is a most understandable introduction to the Qabalah. The editors have enhanced this classic work with their commentary, notes and a system of reference and have added practical material in the form of meditations, exercises, rituals and mantras.
Garden of Pomegranates is an excellent book for those interested in the working of the mind, in psychology, parapsychology and for practicians of the magical arts. This edition contains a glossary, bibliography and index. The text is enhanced by 52 beautiful illustrations and figures.

By A Customer on 21 April 1999
Format: Paperback
I have read and studied the Cicero's published works for many years and this book is simply superb. This expands and elaberates on Israel Regardie's original "A Garden of Pomegranates" without taking away from the author's true vision of his work. The book covers in depth the paths and spheres on the tree of life, along with the symbolism associated with them. If you have to get only one book on the cabala make it this one.

This book is the single best introduction to the Qabalah for Occultists and Magicians. It details the fundamentals of the Holy Qabalah in plain English. All of the information originally left out by Regardie has been provided by the Ciceros, who themselves have quite a name in the Occult books industry. Other great books to check out: Self Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition, The Middle Pillar (The Balance Between Mind and Magic), The Golden Dawn.

For the serious student this book is more than just a leasurely read. This is not just bedtime reading. This is part of a journey. It contains the elements of a new life!

I did not just buy it to read it but to study it. Expect to have your horizons broadened and your old wineskins changed! It is powerful and transforming.

Thank you for your hard work. I have since bought this as a gift for numerous others who are awakening. I recommended it to lots more...Make sure there is enough around as I know I will be ordering more of this book! It is a truly valuable resource.

I initially overlooked this book, but after coming back to it, I realized it is actually an exceptional book with an in-depth explanation of each sephira and the paths that connect them. The vision of each path discussed within explains the symbolism used in the golden dawn tradition and illuminates the various types of intelligence exhibited by the mind. Highly recommended if you want to gain knowledge on the tree of life.

I LOVED THIS BOOK SEVERAL YEARS AGO. Did not have time then to really study it, yet found it amazingly accurate for its lovely metaphoric symbolic launguage.
Now I have re-bought it & have the time to really study it I am certain I shall be able to open the curtain between the worlds & really get to know the 'upper worlds.'
Thankyou Cicero & Cicero for the excellent pathworkings, i am already getting results. I love your works, Self-Initiation into the GD system is a beautiful book well worth any true magus' or prietess' money & time. Time we all should devote to this work of manifesting the Divine in the everydayA Garden of Pomegranates world around us. God bless all who do so!
