A unique and humorous -- and also practical -- approach to the increasingly popular study of Qabalah. This is a seriously funny book! Traditional Qabalistic (or Cabalistic, or, indeed, Kabbalistic -- read this book to find out what the difference is...we know you've always wondered) sources tend to be a bit, er, dry. DuQuette spices up the Qabalah and makes it come alive, restoring the joy of learning the fundamentals of this admittedly arcane system by using simple, amusing anecdotes and metaphors. This account, written psuedepigraphically (fictitiously attributed to a supposed authority), allows DuQuette as Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford to soar to outrageous heights and, when necessary, stand apart from the silliness to highlight the golden eggs of Qabalistic wisdom nested therein. Sure to be a revelation to those who think that learning about the Qabalah needs to be tedious and serious, DuQuette shows that great truths can be transmitted through the medium of laughter. * A Dilettante's Guide to What You Do and Do Not Need to Know to Become a Qabalist .

From the Publisher:

“A Dilettante’s Guide to What You Do and Do Not Need to Know to Become a Qabalist”, The Chicken Qabalah purports to be the teachings of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford, who in reality is an alter ego of Lon Milo Duquette’s. Fed up with “authorities” in this burgeoning occult field who waste readers’ time with such pointless (if impressive) tasks as ‘counting the Nostril Hairs of God’, Lon’s very funny and very practical Chicken Qabalah empowers the would-be Qabalist to remember and distinguish between what is important in Qabalah—i.e., the idea of Unity—and what is not—i.e., almost everything else. Along the way, readers will giggle themselves silly through this truly funny book, and discover at its end that they have learned more Qabalah by accident than they ever would by studied intent. If one had to select just one of the treasures this book offers to encapsulate its message, it might be this: “...[W]e are not Qabalists to prove the Bible is holy—we are Qabalists because everything is holy. Look hard enough at anything and you will eventually see everything! Right now—right where you are, God is talking to you from the pages of the Bible, the Koran, the Vedas—from the funny papers, billboards, street signs, ticket stubs, and automobile license plates.” Lon Milo Duquette, always an edifying delight to read, is the author of The Magick of Thelema, The Tarot of Ceremonial Magick, Angels, Demons and Gods of the New Millennium, and the autobiographical My Life With the Spirits.

About the Author:

His previous publications include Magick of Thelema, The Tarot of Ceremonial Magick, Angels, Demons & Gods of the New Millennium, and the humorous, biographical My Life with the Spirits.
