The God-Powered Life:
Awakening to Your Divine Purpose by Rabbi David Aaron
You are an individual expression of God. That’s the teaching of the ancient Jewish mystical tradition. Rabbi David Aaron shows that when we truly connect to our inner self, that fact becomes wonderfully obvious. Each of us has a divine mission in life, he teaches, and when we understand this, we are empowered to take control of our life; to use our creative powers more fully; and give more to others, our community, and the world. In The God-Powered Life , the author looks at how to: find the courage to be who we truly are rather than who others want us to be, find a connection to the divine within ourselves, manifest that divine presence in our dealing with others and during tumultuous times, gain a clearer understanding of ourselves and our purpose in life by using the ten Sephirot, or attributes of God.

Living A Joyous Life:
The True Spirit of Jewish Practice by Rabbi David Aaron
Secular and religious Jews alike will find wisdom and inspiration in Rabbi David Aaron’s new book in which he reveals the joy that living a Jewish life can bring. With his characteristic humor and enthusiasm, Rabbi Aaron looks at key, and often misunderstood, aspects of Jewish practice—our relationship with God, Torah study, prayer, living the commandments, celebrating the Sabbath and keeping kosher — and shows us how they enable us to access and express the godliness within us. Celebrating Shabbat, for example, reminds us that we are created in the image of God, empowered with free choice and intention; studying the Torah releases our chen , or inner beauty and grace, and observing kosher laws helps keep us in touch with our human sensitivity. Rabbi Aaron clarifies why many Jews today feel disconnected from their heritage. He invites readers who have lost touch with their Jewish roots to “unpack their spiritual baggage” and discover the true spirit of Judaism. Rabbi Aaron is one of the most dynamic and accessible teachers of Kabbalah and Jewish wisdom today, and this book is a warm invitation to anyone struggling to find fresh meaning in Jewish practice.
“With his trademark common sense and extraordinary range of poignant and telling anecdotes, Rabbi David Aaron presents a Jewish vision that can guide one to a life of holiness and joy.” —Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of A Code of Jewish Ethics and Jewish Literacy
“In Living a Joyous Life we discover that understanding the depths of Judaism and Jewish tradition empowers each of us to achieve our fullest potential, opening the unique divine force we all harbor; in essence, to become godlike. Ultimately, we – as God’s partners – attain the potential to complete God’s creation, the perfection of the world. Now that’s empowerment!” —Dr. Gerald Schroeder, author of Genesis and the Big Bang, The Science of God, and The Hidden Face of God
Inviting God In: Celebrating the Soul-Meaning of the Jewish Holy Days
(Shambhala Pocket Classics) by Rabbi David Aaron
It’s not about how to celebrate; it’s about why! New book explains how the Jewish holidays can revitalize our personal relationship with God. This warm, inspiring look at the holidays from Rabbi David Aaron—one of the most dynamic and accessible teachers of Jewish thought today—shows us how each holy day can empower us to recognize God’s loving presence in our lives every day. Holidays are not the same as vacations, Aaron points out. Vacations allow us to escape our everyday lives, but holidays are a time to connect, to remember that which we take for granted. Aaron suggests that each holiday can be thought of as a “date” with God: a time to strengthen our bond with the divine, and to reinforce our awareness of God’s love for us.
“David Aaron has so much common sense and wisdom about life, and a style that just draws you in with his combination of unexpected, but compelling, anecdotes and insights. Inviting God In has a lot to teach all of us, about God and about ourselves.”—Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of Jewish Literacy
The Secret Life of G-d: Discovering the Divine Within You
by Rabbi David Aaron
According to one ancient sage, “Kabbalah is not the path to paradise but the path to paradox.” Yet Rabbi Aaron untangles enough of that paradox to leave us with a much clearer picture of paradise. He takes the existential and makes it tangible; his answers of “yes” to either/or questions somehow make sense, and at the end of the day, his love for and delight in the study of kabbalah is contagious… -Publishers’ Weekly How much does our perception of God really matter? Many of us aren’t conscious of our image of a “higher power.” For some of us, that unspoken image is a judgmental Parent or an exacting Old Man in the Sky. For others, God is an imaginary friend who is there to fix problems after we create them. Rabbi David Aaron, an inspiring and gentle guide, can help you discover a mature, new understanding of God and lead you to discover the wellspring of Divinity within you. By drawing on teachings of Kabbalah that were secret for millennia, he helps you to reclaim the power you’ve given away to negative images of God or passive images of yourself. These mystical secrets of Judaism can offer reassuring guidance, meaning, and purpose to the lives of people of all faiths. In the journey to discovering God’s secret life you will:
- Awaken to your life’s deepest purpose
- Know that you matter and that every thing you feel and do is important to God
- Delight in a deeper connection to your true inner self, God, and others
- Learn to experience God’s infinite love for you
- Rise to new heights, cope with challenges, and make courageous choices
- Achieve true peace of mind and freedom from anxiety
Rabbi Aaron shares these profound ancient teachings in simple, everyday language with a touch of wit and humor. Rich in personal stories and anecdotes, his examples from daily life help us tap the transformational power hidden within and illuminate the surprising paradoxes of spiritual growth. Awakened to finally experience a personal connection to God, we are at last able to receive God’s love unconditionally and discover our ultimate identity, divine purpose, and true happiness.

Kabbalah Works: Secrets for Purposeful Living (Your Coach in a Box)
by Rabbi David Aaron
The pursuit of this deeply meaningful aspect of the Bible is fast-entering the cultural mainstream as celebrities including Madonna, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears embrace its divine inspiration. Rabbi David Aaron is a Kabbalistic master, a translator of the sacred secrets of Kabbalah into modern everyday language. Kabbalah is not a religion or an independent tradition; rather it is an integral part of the divine revelation communicated to the prophet Moses and recorded in the Bible. The Kabbalah reveals the basic truths at the core of our existence, empowering us to discover our purpose, awaken our passion for life and tap into the unlimited resource of power. The Kabbalah sheds light on the seemingly unanswerable questions of our lives, such as: Who is G-d and what does He want from us? What is secret to happiness? How do we achieve fulfillment? How do we find true love? Why is there evil and suffering in the world? What is our ultimate purpose here on Earth? Rabbi David Aaron, author of Endless Light, Seeing G-d and The Secret Life of G-d, is one of the most popular and accessible teachers of Kabbalah. In his first audio-only program, KABBALAH WORKS (Gildan Audio; 5 CDs/approx. 4 hours; $19.98 US/$26.98 Canada ), he shares the timeless teachings of the Kabbalah which had been kept secret for millennia. Listeners of all faiths are inspired and transformed by the profundity and clarity of this divine wisdom. According to Rabbi Aaron: “‘Kabbalah’ literally means ‘receptivity.’ Indeed, it is the art of learning to receive. For example: when you are offered a gift, do not take it; instead, make of yourself a space that can receive it. Kabbalah is not only about getting more out of life; it is about receiving life as a gift. It is about the art of receiving life’s gifts of love, spiritual growth, awareness, creativity, freedom, inner peace, happiness, and holiness.” Speaking with the warmth, humor and inimitable style that draw sell-out crowds to his seminars and retreats, Rabbi Aaron makes the powerful wisdom of the Kabbalah vital, practical and accessible. He reveals how the teachings of the Kabbalah can guide modern-day listeners to lives of purpose, passion and power, and speaks about the issues that listeners care about, including:
• How Beliefs Make or Break Our Lives
• The Transformational Joy of Self-Awareness
• Connecting To The Divine
• The Power of Service
• The Gift of Eternal Life, and more.
In KABBALAH WORKS, Rabbi Aaron shares his insights from and interpretations of the mystical wellspring of Kabbalah and reveals how to illuminate your life, embrace a mature connection to G-d, and discover the path to a more fulfilling, purposeful life.
