David Goddards Tree of Sapphires offers students of the occult a working knowledge of the Qabalah, providing them with the key to unlocking the ancient and modern Western mystery traditions for themselves. Avoiding heavy theory about Qabalah, Goddard offers exercises, meditations, and visualizations, as well as a prayer book to help readers gain a full understanding and experience of the Qabalah and its Tree of Life, the root of all wisdom. He explains that the Qabalah is the root source of all Western mystery traditionsKabbalist, Rosicrucian and Sufias well as the more modern, classic Western systems, such as the tarot, alchemy, angelology, and ritual magick.
Tree of Sapphires is an experiential guidebook. "Qabalah of the West is a synthesis that is strong in its spiritual armory and rich in its mystical treasury," Goddard writes. "It has inherited many formulae and techniques that make it versatile and adaptable to most life situations and conditions. . . . Its roots draw from the primordial past but it has proven throughout history its adaptability to give to successive generations first-hand knowledge of the Levels of Existence. The Qabalah is a tried and tested way by which dedicated men and women may grow into their full potentialas consciously eternal and immortal beings." And with these meditations and exercises Goddard teaches us just how to do that.
