Leonora Leet (1929-2004) received her Ph.D. from Yale University and was Professor of English at St. John's University. She is the author of The Universal Kabbalah, The Kabbalah of the Soul,Renewing the Covenant, and The Secret Doctrine of the Kabbalah.
Leet has erected a new framework for understanding the mechanism of the transformative spiritual work that enables the human soul to reach higher dimensions of consciousness. She develops a technique called "the Transformative Moment," that allows the individual to progress through all the higher levels of the soul.
Leonora Leet describes three ancient covenants associated with a particular spiritual practice: the Patriarchal Covenant with Father Isaac's practice of meditation; The Sinai Covenant of Holiness with the observance of the Sabbath, and the Moab Covenant of Love with the practice of prayer. This ladder of practices can enable one to ascend to ever higher levels of mystical realization.
The Secret Doctrine of the Kabbalah resurrects this ancient body of knowledge to reveal eternal truths that profoundly impact contemporary spirituality. Experimental methods of practicing Hebraic sacred science are explored that explain, as never before, the meaning of the cosmological diagram of the entire Western esoteric tradition--the kabbalistic Tree of Life.
This landmark work by an innovative modern Kabbalist develops a scientific model for kabbalistic cosmology and soul psychology. Derived from the kabbalistic diagram of the Tree of Life and the author’s own Sabbath Star diagram, this universal model encodes the laws of all cosmic manifestation, giving a mathematical basis to many aspects of this mystical tradition and providing a new synthesis of science and spirituality that may well write a new chapter to the Kabbalah.
