Be honest: When you hear the word, "Qabala," what comes to mind? Hermetic Qabala is a spiritual framework for understanding ourselves and the universe, using a glyph called the Tree of Life. It has tons of practical, magickal uses, but it's not uncommon for someone to take a quick look at Qabala and decide it isn't for them, for any number of reasons. Many people see Qabala as an antiquated spiritual tool bogged down with undesirable concepts like patriarchy, hierarchy, and monotheism. But I'm one of those weirdos who started digging into Qabala early in my Pagan spiritual journey, and then just couldn't stop.

What are "Pathworkings?" Within the organizations where I trained, the term has quite a specific meaning, and that is a fantasy journey, a journey in the imagination, that has been crafted along Archetypal themes to achieve specific result. Although the term is often used interchangeably with "fantasy journey," I am using it here for a specific form of fantasy journey. I came across a saying of an unknown originator. I state it thus: "The Tourists see and do what they came to see and do; and they experience. The Travelers see what is there; and they realize." And why did I tell you this? From my point of view, fantasy journeys are set up to lead you to an inner place where you can ...
