A great book that discusses various forms of classical, generic meditation, as well as traditional Jewish meditation. Kaplan not only provides background, but in many instances describes what to do at the basic level. He shows that one can get much more from the classic Jewish prayers than just "saying the words" to say them. If you are seeking to look beyond the simple meaning of the prayers and want to connect in a more spiritual way, this book is a terrific start.

Love it!!! I'm in a twelve steps program where meditation plays an important role in recovery. Being Jewish I didn't feel comfortable with the Buddhist or Zen Methods, so, after some research I got into this book... I was truly amazed with the clarity, precision and knowledge that Kaplan writes!!!
The first five chapter expound the basic principles of every meditation system ( Kaplan seems to be really knowledgeable about Eastern techniques too). The practical guide for the Jewish method really starts in Chapter 6...I already started meditating and am really excited about it!!!

This book is unbelievable. Every single time I read it I am astounded at the wonderful insights and depth included. Even when the author gives a simple example, there is tremendous depth to be found for those willing to take the time to delve deep enough to find it.

I cannot believe more people have not read this book given the rampant interest in mystsim in the Jewish world, often miss-channeled through non-Jewish sources. This is an extremely authentic source on both Judaism and Kaballah and a must read for every Jew who whishes to understand the history of the religion and how to better connect to The Creator through growth, introspection, and even prayer.

I truly enjoy reading this book. It provides a lot of good insight into various ways of meditating. It uses examples of different types of meditation and their purpose. It helps guild you alone the way to reach a much deeper meditation state, what to expect when you arrive their, and more important how to get back.

This books is good for the beginner or the more advanced. It definitely lays the ground work for a wonderful journey into the world of meditation. Deep meditation is not something to take lightly but if you are looking for a way to achieve better results I would recommend reading this book.

I've been a fan of Aryeh Kaplen's work for quite some time and I was not disappointed.

The book is beautifully written by a brilliant and unique scholar, but I felt too intimidated to actually try what he was suggesting. I will read it again some time, and perhaps then I will understand it more and try the techniques Rav Kaplan describes. It is a very deep study and a overwhelming to put into practice.

I have researched various meditation techniques and can say that this one is not very different from any other technique. The meditation technique is basically the same wherever you look. It is just tweaked for the particular culture/religion that is using mediation. As a practical guide, I found it to be useful and helpful in executing a "Jewish" oriented meditation.

I can't say enough good things about Kaplan's work. I first read Meditation and Kabbalah in graduate school and was very enamored by the content and Kaplan's writing style. At the time I had no idea that he had written so much in such a short time. This is a short book, easy to read but deep and meaningful in content. If you are interested in Kabbalah, Jewish Mysticism or Meditation in General I highly recommend this book and others written by Kaplan.
I am not Jewish, I happened upon this book and I read it because it had to do with meditation. I'm very glad I did. I meditate every day, 30 minutes each morning and evening. I wanted to learn more about meditation and I got what I wanted from this book and a whole lot more. I learned so much about meditation and it's role in Jewish history. I found it so interesting and really enjoyed the journey. I think this book is wonderful for everyone. It doesn't matter your religion. This is a very spiritual, enlightening and significant book for both avid meditators and those just beginning a practice. I would recommend this to anyone interested in meditation or wanting to learn more about Jewish history and traditions. It is extremely interesting and informative.
