"The Cube of Space Workbook" seeks to make the Cube a symbol that illuminates the esoteric meaning of the Hebrew alphabet and the Major Arcana of the Tarot more accessible to students of the Qabalah and Tarot. As author Joy Nur worked with this symbol, she found correspondences with directional attributions in a variety of traditions. This workbook is designed to deepen the student s understanding of the Tarot Keys and discover practical ways to apply the insights revealed by a study of the structure of the Cube of Space. As the cube is a symbol of three-dimensional reality and Tarot images are archetypal symbols for human states of consciousness, study of this symbol also sheds light on the human condition and the workings of the mind. The directional attributions also relate to cycles of life and give clues about the universal desire for a return to the Source of our being and the search for the meaning of life. While this workbook is designed to offer readers the opportunity to make their own discoveries, Nur s brief commentary on each view of the Cube of Space offers seed ideas for contemplation that come from her own meditative efforts. The author presents the book as a useful meditation tool, expounding on the teachings of Paul Foster Case, The founder of Builders of the Adytum, a western mystery school. The workbook is well-written, the author keeps the text understandable and to the point, and it comes in a handy and portable format. RECOMMENDED by The U.S. Review of Books"
