On this complete audio study course, Rabbi Cooper synthesizes this uniquely-preserved wisdom with original kabbalistic teachings on the sephirot - the mystical structures that underpin all of reality - the Ohr Ein Sof - the original light of creation - and midrash - the teaching stories.
Complete with meditations developed by Rabbi Cooper during six years of work and research in the Old City of Jerusalem, The Mystical Kabbalah is the perfect introduction to this time-honored system for spiritual growth and self-discovery.

I have read many books on Kabbalah which wound up as a door stop in my study because of the failure of the author to deliver a smooth transition to explain the abstract principals of Kabbalah. Finally an audio book that breathes understanding into these abstract principles! Rabbi David A. Cooper brings an intuitive narrative style that promotes full understanding of the abstract material contained in Kabbalah with very easy to understand tales and examples that explain these Kabbalistic principals. For a better understanding on the discussions of the Ten Sefirot peek into the book at a book store. The meditations narrated by the author were very calming and visual which were helpful in attaining a better understanding of the different levels of consciousness.
Rabbi David Cooper is a great teacher. This audio presentation on Kabbalah is fanastic and teaches at many different levels. You can listen over and over again and find new treasures each time. This is one of the Best audio Books I have ever purchased. It is my favorite.
I am a Clinical Medical Hypnotherapist with specialities in Auto Immune, PTSD, ADHD, Cancer, and Autism. I focus on very difficult cases.
I purchased this book with high expectations; however, those expectations really were not met. What I expected was a teaching of the Kabbalah, however, what I received in this books was a rehash of information that I had already learned though many other sources. If the reader (listener) of this book had no knowledge of Jewish mysticism, they might find it interesting; however, without such knowledge, I fear the reader (listener) would become bored, and most likely wouldn't finish this book.
The narrator did a good job, it was presented in a very basic and simplistic way that is steeped in long stories to illustrate the most basic concepts that most people already know.
I didn't find one
Most likely not. Rabbi Cooper may be a wonderful teacher and speaker in person; however, his style of talking and teaching really doesn't come though well on a audible book.
Wonderful topic and I could see the topic being made into a lecture series but I couldn't find "entertainment value" to a general audience.
The speaker in the book is so in awe of the information he is passing on to us that he sometimes uses "whalespeak". The Rabbi is a good storyteller though, and I enjoyed listening and also the meditations. The storyteller has given me knew insights on old matters.
Don't meditate while driving in the car I would say.
I had hoped for information on the history and philosophy of the Kabbalah but this was more of a lecture on new age mysticism from a Jewish background. It is not very informative unless you are looking for another form of meditation.
This is Ezekiel my Service Dog. We Listen to books and go on walks, work in the Garden and Lawn together. We Like Thrillers / Mystery
This is Liberal New Age Medation Lecture. This is not what I was looking for. I had hoped for information on the history and philosophy of the Kabbalah. It is not very informative unless you are looking for another form of meditation. David offers no new insight to the Kabbalah or G_D.
good book very informative and easy to follow. it has helped ansewr a lot on the subject but also raises reason for further inquiry. very good exposure piece as well.
