Throughout the history of the Jewish esoteric tradition, humankind has been understood to play a pivotal role in the perfection of the cosmos, uniting the finite with the infinite in the perfection of divine personality. Working from an original synthesis of the major kabbalistic traditions of the cosmology derived from the Bible, the Zohar and the school of Isaac Luria, Leora Leet has erected a new framework for understanding the mechanism of the transformative spiritual work that enables the human soul to reach increasingly higher dimensions of consciousness. Leet first considers the false temptations of worldly power and pleasure that lead to the fall of the soul and then the means of it redemption. She develops a powerful meditative technique called the 'Transformative Moment', whose workings are exemplified by Jacob and Joseph. This technique allows the individual to progress through all the higher levels of the soul, even possibly to attain the miraculous powers of the spiritual masters. She further correlates the hierarchy of soul levels with Ezekiel's Throne vision to show the various paths the soul may travel toward self-realisation: sex, love, power, kwledge, holiness and unification.
Leonora Leet (1929-2004) received her Ph.D. from Yale University and was Professor of English at St. John's University. Her other books on the Kabbalah are The Universal Kabbalah, Renewing the Covenant, and The Secret Doctrine of the Kabbalah.
