Kabbalah The Way: Using the Wisdom of Kabbalah for Spiritual Transformation and Fulfillment.. Kabbalah  is a set of esoteric teachings meant to explain the relationship between an unchanging, eternal and mysterious Ein Sof (no end) and the mortal and finite universe (his creation). While it is heavily used by some denominations, it is not a religious denomination in itself. Inside Judaism, it forms the foundations of mystical religious interpretation. Outside Judaism, its scriptures are read outside the traditional canons of organised religion.Click here for Kabbalah: Key To Your Inner Power (Mystical Paths of the World's Religions)
