Books on Saphire® Imagery

Acclaimed books on Saphire® Imagery and DreamBirth® by Catherine Shainberg.

Free Book Excerpts

From the Kabbalah of Light, Catherine Shainberg’s newest book released in July 2022 and  as excerpted in Eden Magazine.

Kabbalah of dreaming is also called the Kabbalah of Light or Saphire. Saphire is unique among other forms of Kabbalah in that it limits its practice to the imagination and visualizations to access higher levels of consciousness.”
