49 Gates of Light is a seven-week course for exploring the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. This is not just another book "about" kabbalah. It's a set of 50 daily experiential lessons, designed to help you apply the principles in your own life. Each day, you will have a Hebrew mantra to chant, a story or teaching to study, and something active for you to do. The lessons are color coded to correspond to the Rainbow, the Seven Days of Creation, the Tree diagram, the Omer, and the pattern on the B'nai Or prayer shawl designed by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. This makes it very easy to learn the Tree of Life diagram and see how it connects with the world around you. Although this book is designed to go with the "Omer" period on the Jewish calendar (the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot, the Feast of Weeks), it can be used anytime, as a set of personal lessons on Kabbalah.
