Michaelson has written a handbook on Kabbalah and health. It is a guidebook leading the reader along a path of trying to get to know God while at the same time getting to know your body. Michaelson’s premise is that much effort and thought has been dedicated to enriching the soul, all to the neglect of the body. In reality, claims the author, both are godly and both need nurturing. And when both body and soul get their requisite exercise, a person is able to attain new levels of spiritual fulfillment.
The author teaches the reader how to exercise, how to walk, and how to wash. He believes and proves that there is godliness in everything.
This book is filled with pithy quotes from Jewish tradition as well as from writers who are not Jewish and from non-Jewish traditions, quotes that underscore the points the author wishes to develop. By far the most exciting part of the book is Michaelson’s meditation techniques and his activities to help readers learn and advance their own spirituality.
