What is Qabala?

Qabala is a framework for understanding and experiencing “life, the universe, and everything”—to quote sci-fi author Douglas Adams, wildly out of context. It is a tool for elevating one’s consciousness, for deepening one’s understanding of oneself, and for discovering and embracing the whole of manifested and unmanifested reality. Learn more.

More about the book

A fresh look at Hermetic Qabala, this book highlights the inherent queer and non-binary nature of this powerful mystical system as well as the innate inclusivity of its practice. Author Enfys J. Book explains the basics of Qabala in an easy-to-understand way, making it a powerful spiritual tool for any practitioner to enjoy.

While walking you through the Tree of Life and its ten spheres (Sephiroth), Enfys offers a variety of pathworkings, exercises, and spells to deepen your understanding. Through these magickal workings and the modernization of outdated language, this book encourages all readers to expand their viewpoint of Qabala. It welcomes queer people to see themselves in this esoteric practice and invites teachers to update their lesson plans by making them friendlier and more accessible to all.

Christopher Penczak, author of over 20 books on magic and mysticism and founder of the Temple of Witchcraft tradition, writes the Foreword of the book.

Praise for Queer Qabala

A quote from Mat Auryn, Best-selling author of "Psychic Witch": "A much-needed bold and provocative work, asserting and highlighting the queer nature of the Hermetic Qabala and the inclusivity of divinity." Next to the quote is the cover of the book "Queer Qabala: Nonbinary, Genderfluid, Omnisexual Mysticism & Magick" by Enfys J. Book, Foreword by Christopher Penczak. The cover art features an artistically-stylized rainbow-gradient tree.

Book’s fresh perspectives unveil the magical potential the Qabala holds for the queer practitioner.

Mat Auryn, best-selling author of Psychic Witch
A quote from Ivo Dominguez, Jr., author of "Four Elements of the Wise: Working with the Magickal Powers of Earth, Air, Water, Fire": "Enfys carefully removes layers of misconceptions to reveal the truth that Qabala contains everyone and everything, including all that is yet to be discovered or defined. This book is not just for queer people, it is for everyone." Next to the quote is the cover of the book "Queer Qabala: Nonbinary, Genderfluid, Omnisexual Mysticism & Magick" by Enfys J.

Enfys carefully removes layers of misconceptions to reveal the truth that the Qabala contains everyone and everything, including all that is yet to be discovered or defined. This book is not just for queer people, it is for everyone. If you are a seeker of the mysteries and on the path of spiritual evolution, the material in this book is indispensable because it opens new realms of thought.

Book’s exploration of the queerness inherent in this Hermetic descendant of Jewish mystical tradition is nothing short of revelatory.

Misha Magdalene, author of Outside the Charmed Circle: Exploring Gender & Sexuality in Magical Practice
A quote from Jack Chanek, author of "Qabalah for Wiccans" and "Tarot for Real Life": "Enfys J. Book brings all the vitality and joy of queer culture to this book, combining serious magical reflection with a vibrant celebration of the diversity in human gender, sex, and sexuality. 'Queer Qabala' shows us not only that Qabalah can be welcoming to queer magical practitioners, but that it already is."

Jack Chanek, author of Qabala for Wiccans

Someone has finally written this book! Thank you, Enfys J. Book, for being the one to guide us through the mists of binary vision that cloud so much of our current worldview. The Qabala is queer. Trees and individuals and life itself are queer. Magic is deeply queer. Queer Qabala sweetly reminds us that magic is personal, it is relational, and a Tree of Life that has ten distinct aspects, and works in triads and triple pillars, can never be confined to the rigidity of binary genders or sexualities. As Enfys reminds us: this is a system that seeks to describe the universe, so let’s allow it to reflect the diversity of those who approach it, and recognise its true depth and breadth.

Jane Meredith, author of Falling through the Tree of Life: Embodied Kabbalah

A fresh perspective to the understanding of Hermetic Qabalah, it is an invitation to all magickal practitioners to explore, redefine and ultimately claim the studies of Qabalah as a system that is universal in its application and inclusive in its use. Journaling exercises, ritual and more provide the practical application of clear and concise foundations of the basics of Qabalistic theory, making the wisdom of the Hermetic Tree accessible to anyone. A timely writing that brings the ancient wisdom of Qabalah into the dynamics of modern spirituality.”

Robin Fennelly, author of Poetry of the Spheres: Qabalah

Led by a friendly and shrewd voice and filled with challenging but accessible practices, Queer Qabala strikes a beautiful balance of powerful intellect and fun. Sensitive and deeply intentional, Queer Qabala revels in the glory of the gorgeous strangeness inherent in existing outside the typical box. Enfys Book is a warm and kind guide through a complex system, providing an exceptional and deeply needed resource for modern Pagan practitioners.

What is so revolutionary about this book is that it doesn’t project a queer sensibility onto an existing, oppressive paradigm, but instead explores the inherent (and traditional!) queerness of the Qabalah, offering a lens that is at once both traditional as well as relevant to an evolving consciousness. Besides being an extremely important book for the queer occultist, this is also a sound introduction to the Qabalah in general, offering practitioners a greater understanding of the Tree of Life and how to work with it toward the betterment of their lives. Destined to become a staple for the queer occultist.

Incredibly clear, beautifully written explanation of the Hermetic Qabala and its inherent queerness, written with style and wit by an expert in the subject.

Yvonne Aburrow, author of All Acts of Love and Pleasure: Inclusive Wicca

Enfys skillfully challenges long-standing assumptions and redefines an ancient system to bring it in line with the realities of the modern world. Their revisioning of the spheres and paths of the Hermetic Qabala to reveal its inherent inclusivity and remove limiting gender assignments is a much-needed change…Enfys offers many rituals and exercises that bring the Qabala’s wisdom alive within us. If you’ve avoided learning or working with the Qabala because you didn’t feel like you fit within its patriarchal limits, read this book.
