    Penczak has really done some amazing and in-depth research on this book. I have to say that his presentation of the ideas of Kabbalah are clear-cut and concise - Wiccan-friendly if ever there was such a thing for Kabbalistic concepts! As a ceremonialist, I feel that he has definitely spent the time and energy needed to even begin to scratch the surface of High Magick. His approach is well-tailored to the average person and the comprehensive correspondence lists for each Sephirah, alone, are worth Penczak has really done some amazing and in-depth research on this book.

As a ceremonialist, I feel that he has definitely spent the time and energy needed to even begin to scratch the surface of High Magick. His approach is well-tailored to the average person and the comprehensive correspondence lists for each Sephirah, alone, are worth the price of this book. It's a massive book! It's not something that can be picked up and sped through. The course is outlined so that each Sephirah brings a new lesson - and there are, of course, the 'Seeking of the Elemental Gifts' assignments which must be completed before the final 'initiation'. I did have only one real criticism. While Penczak presents many new concepts of High Magick to the reader (Low Magick practitioners - the target audience of his Temple of Witchcraft series), he fails to explain the significance and meaning of many of the details. He even says in the book that one should not attempt to omit things or re-write rituals unless he or she understands why and how every part of that ritual is the way that it is - well, he also fails to elaborate on many of the concepts that he presents...leaving those unfamiliar with the 'whys' and 'hows' of High Magick to merely guess why things are the way that they are and what they mean. I would encourage anyone reading this book to also research some of the concepts for themselves as they are presented. All in all, however - this is a splendid read and his best work to date in my opinion.

    I appreciate Chris Penczak's writing of this book. The opening chapters of this book highlight the commonality of magickal and witchcraft perspectives and the remainder offers a united approach to experiencing the Qabalah as a solitary practitioner. I used this book in tandem with a ritual group who did monthly rituals, progressing through the spheres. This was a great supplemental guide and has filled in a lot of holes in my ceremonial education. I appreciate Chris Penczak's writing of this book.

    Most of what's in here is better presented elsewhere, but the appendices have some excellent food for thought Most of what's in here is better presented elsewhere, but the appendices have some excellent food for thought
