"Embodied Kabbalah is a sumptuous offering for Jewish and non-Jewish seekers alike... Rabbi Matthew Ponak's edition is illustrative of the integrative approach of a new generation, and I celebrate the opportunity to include it in my studies and teaching."

- Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, PhD, author of Wounds into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma

"Kabbalah is a dense maze not to be entered into lightly. You need a guide steeped in Wisdom, and daring enough to turn into the unknown without assurance of finding a way out. Indeed, there may be no way out, only an ever-deepening way in. If you are up to the challenge, Matthew Ponak is the perfect guide and Embodied Kabbalah is a wonderful guidebook. Walk boldly. Step lightly."

- Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of Judaism Without Tribalism

"Inspiring, deeply moving, and illuminating...Rabbi Matthew Ponak makes the mysteries of Kabbalah accessible to beginners and advanced spiritual seekers alike. Drawing from traditional kabbalistic sources and commentaries, readers are inspired to join the conversation... to think symbolically, intuit 'meaning' in the mystery and experience the Transcendent in body, heart and soul..."

- Dr. Beth Hedva, author of Betrayal, Trust and Forgiveness

"An evolutionary text that heralds the dawn of a true age - one where transcendence and immanence are indistinguishable from each other. This is the path that will save us - the path of the wholly holy. It's all God, even the dust that falls from our awakening hearts. Highly recommended!"

- Jeff Brown, author of Grounded Spirituality and Soulshaping

"This is a work that I would be happy to give to spiritual seekers, confident that they will find inspiration and illumination that is yet grounded and balanced."

- Nehemia Polen, Professor of Jewish Thought at Hebrew College and author of Stop, Look, Listen: Celebrating Shabbos Through a Spiritual Lens

"Matthew Ponak's Embodied Kabbalah: Jewish Mysticism for All People is a treasure-trove of wisdom and insight... Readers of all stripes will enjoy this collection of spiritual practices and reflections from Jewish teachers across nearly a millenium!"

- Ariel Evan Mayse, Professor of Religious Studies, Stanford University, and Rabbi-in-Residence at Atiq: Jewish Maker Institute
