Publisher's Summary

Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan has translated Sefer Yetzirah, the oldest and most mysterious of all kabbalistic texts, and now brings its theoretical, meditative, and magical implications to light. He expounds on the dynamics of the spiritual domain, the worlds of the Sefirot, souls, and angels. When properly understood, Sefer Yetzirah becomes the instruction manual for a very special type of meditation meant to strengthen concentration and to aid the development of telekinetic and telepathic powers.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Practice is a stretch

Very dull with little added value provided by the author. Just a rehash of existing material. Very disappointing.

Excellent

If only more of Kaplan's works were made available! I have one of his books in hardcopy that I would listen to many times if I had it on audio.

Don’t waste your Audible credit

There is no cohesive story in this book. It is comprised of recitations of fragmented teachings from various sources and it reads like a dissertation on history of Kabbalah rather than like a practical manual.
If this book is written to even further obscure the secrets of Kabbalah, the author has fully succeeded in that mission.

Great explanation and instructions.

I enjoyed the audio book so much, I purchased the revised version of the hard copy of the book. I wondered if the audio 🤔 book will later be revised too? I so much enjoy the brakedown of each word, meaning, purpose, and step by step instructions.

No sound.

How do I get a refund on this?

No sound whatsoever. I checked my volume, audio. Other audio books played just fine.
