Brooklyn: David Smith, 2020. Limited Edition. A FINE PREMIUM CLOTH VOLUME, sewn, blocked in red foil, with custom end papers, and French fold dust jacket. With 32 Cards [5 X 7], in custom illustrated box. Book includes thirty-six original images. The material in the “Thirty-Two Keys” is a Kabbalistic system of contemplation. This offer includes a book of interpretation and practice, together with, a set thirty-two symbolic image cards. This work offers a structural overview of the path of contemplative mysticism based on Smith’s interpretation of the Kabbalah, and if you are familiar with the publications, “The Sacrificial Universe” and “The Blazing Dew of Stars”, then you will know how complex and extraordinary are the ideas. The new volume provides a rare opportunity to experience Kabbalistic material as one works through a set of daily exercises. The content is configured for a 288-day training period, using a system that is a true amalgam of sources that spans more than eight centuries, but unified as a single vision. A most interesting tool for the study and practice that is unique in the Western Esoteric Tradition. 192 pages. Octavo. (Item ID: DS-32K)
