I. GRAPHIC ESSAYS (Vol. 1)

58 Pages of Graphic Essays and Posters, in Full Color
This volume of The Alphabet in Genesis series includes full color versions of the illustrations in the Greyscale Edition volumes. Several new graphic pages are included for the first time.

Includes the Meditation Mandala, The Genesis Gate
Our meditation mandala, The Genesis Gate, and instructions for using it are included. Created by Stan Tenen in 1978 as a means of drawing the Hebrew letters, it is published here for the first time. This deceptively simple pattern of circles enables everyone who works at it to begin to explore the Pardes meditation in Genesis for themselves, safely and at their own pace.
