Lightning Flash of Alef Volume 3: The Thirty-Two Keys
This is a proper introduction to the system that also provides an opportunity for the training of contemplative skills. Originally written in 2019, The Thirty-Two Keys offers a diagrammatic overview of the path. An array of diagrams is presented as a set of 32 contemplation cards accompanying the book, and each image is analyzed in a separate chapter. The cards are utilized in three basic exercises. The text was entirely re-written in 2022 and printed as a larger second edition.
The Thirty-Two Keys, the third volume from the Lightning Flash of Alef series, 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 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. The second edition of The Thirty-Two Keys is presented in an 8x10 format to match most other volumes in the series. The contemplation cards have also been enhanced to improve the visual impact.
