VOLUME 3: The Thirty-Two Keys is a group of symbolic images that provide an overview of the non-emanationist interpretation of the Kabbalah based on sources that span eight centuries. The images support a set of contemplative exercises configured for a 288-day period and serve as an introduction to the greater path of mysticism in all its forms. Beyond its introductory role, The Thirty-Two Keys is a powerful tool for contemplation at any point on the path and is absolutely unique in the literature of the Western Esoteric Tradition. This second edition has profoundly refined the original material and extensively reworked both the text and the images to make the content clearer and more accessible than ever.
VOLUME 6: Black Aether: If we hold ourselves as separate observers of reality, we will never understand reality. Contemplative mysticism is like a wild beast that consumes itself upon the fires of its own life force. The labyrinth of impressions that constitute so-called “ordinary” life are incinerated whole as a single sacrificial offering as the mind confronts the endless expanse of its own confusions and pain. This becomes the great tikkun (repair) for a seemingly meaningless random universe based on cognitive error. Reality is then absorbed within the very space that presents it, familiarity passes into oblivion, and an astonishing secret nutrient becomes available to all those who seek it.
VOLUME 7: The Eneatych is the crowning jewel of the LFA series. The text contains three sections. The first offers the root practice of the system and gives complete instructions for its performance. This is a practice that conditions the mind but is established in the heart and begins the process of refining the philosopher’s stone (aspeklaria). The second provides an illustrated nine-fold set of kabbalistic themes (eneatych) through which the main points of the system can be studied and contemplated. This serves as a curriculum that can structure one’s ongoing inquiry. The third section is a discourse on mystical contemplation that gives a detailed kabbalistic analysis of each stage of the process. Many images and supporting diagrams are provided. The emphasis of this work is the crystallization of the philosopher’s stone. The alchemical stone is neither a physical substance nor a psychological state … it is a prism through which the infinite passes and reality is seen. The work is accomplished in the heart, which establishes the foundation stone of the holy temple, the pivot point of the axis mundi, the center of the universe, and the point from which the original tzimtzum contracted to the sides leaving a vacated space. This is the point from which all calculation and measurement commences, where conceptuality both begins and ends. This comprises a way of working for study and contemplation that can constitute an entire lifetime’s work.
