Format: Paperback
those familiar with the subject of Quaballah will find the techniques used in this book very interesting. The mental techniques and symbolism are easy enough for the beginner to understand and for the some-what experienced to use as a stepping stone to look at things in a different way. Lack of familiarity with mystisism should not turn anyone away. The book is able to fill in alot of the blanks that some people may have on the subject.

I was quite surprized by the clear and concise manner in which the author presented his material. Nothing of this nature was available when I first began my own investigations (prior to WW II.) His methods are workable and I especially blessed him for reiterating several times that you must build your own version of the tree and his recommendations to use any tarot deck that suits your fancy. What a blessing that todays seekers have a book that cuts out all the rhetoric and goes directly to the point..I threw away my old Rider deck of tarot and am now using the Arthurian deck, which makes more sense to me as a grail seeker also....this deck is quite beautiful and struck a personal note....three cheers for Mr. Gray.

Format: Paperback
This book is a really good read. It is actually part the framework for the training of the Sangreal Sodality. There are questions at the end of each chapter to test your reading. William Gray goes through meditation techniques, pathworking, linking the tarot with the Tree of Life and the various philosophies associated with the tree of life. You won't waste your money with this book.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By J. W. Kennedy VINE VOICE on September 15, 2008
Format: Paperback
Structured something like a workbook, with questions at the end of each chapter. Mr. Gray's writing is intelligent and intelligible; he does not "dumb down" the subject matter but he does not talk "over the heads" of beginners. His tone comes across something like what I imagine as a classic English schoolmaster: knowledgeable, practical, stern but friendly, approachable, and trustworthy. I knew next to nothing about Qabala when I bought this book. Gray recommends that the student read a chapter and then let it soak in for a week or two before proceeding to the next one. I tried that initially, along with doing the exercises and answering the questions, but I got bogged down & distracted, and lost interest about 4 chapters in. Recently I picked the book up again and just read straight through it to get a "concept overview." This time I found it to be very fascinating and instructive, and I hope to return to it again later with a slightly improved understanding and do a slow pass through it according to Mr. Gray's recommendation.
I was able to catch Mr. Gray out on a few factual errors concerning linguistic history and word derivations (apparently not his strong suit.) For example, in adding "th" when assigning letters of the English alphabet to paths, he mistakenly calls the rune "thorn" by the name "eth" (in Old English, eth and thorn were two different letters with different origins, both representing the "th" sound) and furthermore, he tells us that "eth" (actually "thorn") was the origin of the modern letter Y, which is not the case at all (y was already in use as a letter in Anglo-Saxon / Old English. Substitution of Y for thorn as in "Ye Olde...

William Gray provides one of the best introductions to "practical" Qabalah in the Western Esoteric Tradition in this book. Covering nearly 400 pages, with diagrams, practical and theoretical advice, Gray will expose you to the foundations of the Western Esoteric Qabalah.

For those not familiar with these concepts, the Western Esoteric Qabalah is a method of providing a divine worldview, and doing so in such a way that meditation, ritual and searching are key components to the discipline. Exploring Hermetic, Orphic and Mystic paths to "understanding" the role of divinity in the world, Gray's book will provide a great deal of insight into this well established methodology of spiritual exploration.

He also is careful to note the allegorical elements of the work, and cautions the reader many times to not take certain elements of the work too literally, and that in many cases the mental state is far more important than the ritual or the "right" answer.

Each chapter ends with about 10 questions for the reader to review and answer for themselves. This question format allows the reader to synthesize the information in a way that brings forth the key chapter elements in a learning and mentoring style. All in all, if this is your cup of tea, pour yourself a cup of Gray.
