Drawing on a profound knowledge of psychoanalysis and Jewish mysticism, Michael Eigen has written a meaningful and lively introduction to Kabbalah, particularly Lurianic Kabbalah, as it illuminates the psychoanalytic process.

Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis embraces the eternal invitation to walk the path of knowing, but not really knowing Kabbalah. Through it, Eigen­—a prolific author and respected psychoanalyst and educator­—plays a role akin to Maimonides, offering a twenty-first century Guide for the Perplexed. Based on several seminars in Kabbalah and psychoanalysis that Eigen offered under the auspices of the New York University Contemplative Studies Project, the book draws deeply on Eigen’s intensive scholarship, deep soul-searching and God-seeking, and eagerness to share his journey in order to assist others who also are on the path.
