Anatomy of the Soul, the title itself indicates us the concepts of inner self and spirituality that the pious, righteous, investigator for spirituality based on Torah Kabbalah must learn, using the various tools that the holy tzaddik, Rabbi Nachman of Breslov taught us. It is often very difficult to realize the Divine service, absolutely; this book helped a lot one to develop and apply knowledge, without skipping steps and gain a better focus on each area we need to improve.

A remarkable and lucid explanation of Kabbalah was added with text written by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, of blessed memory. Also, many references comes from Reb Noson, the closest disciple of Rebbe Nachman, simplifying further we need to know about Jewish mysticism.

In Anatomy of the Soul have 4 pages of the classic "Tomer Devorah" of Rabbi Moshe Cordovero with details about the Ten Sefirot.

As the vast array of powerful forces that God provided to help man, Rebbe Nachman explains how we can perceive them and uses them, so we can work to have a beautiful vessel to be in connection with the Creator.

“The heart is the source of judgment. The practice of hitbodedut rectifies the heart; it establishes a proper sense of judgment within a person, while at the same time lessening his potential for evil (L.M. I, 59:2)” –– This is easy to learn to be a good person.

A book to nourish our soul, mind and body with the Wisdom of the Torah.
