The Royal Road, by Stephan HoellerThe Fool's Pilgrimage: Kabbalistic Meditations on the Tarot by Stephan A. Hoeller

Just released in a beautiful new edition after thirty years in print, this is truly a classic! (Note that the title of the first edition was slightly different: The Royal Road: A Manual of Kabalistic Meditations on the Tarot.)  This little book provides an excellent introduction both to Kabbalah and to the use of Tarot imagery in guided meditations upon the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. You will find few better introductions to Tarot or Kabbalah. Also included with this fine new edition is a CD with the author reading the Meditations. Highly Recommended! Buy the Book
