Trainee Golem Builder
This blog is about how to build a golem; a creature formed of clay and brought to life through the power of Divine names combined with the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The blog started in October 2010 after a conversation with a friend about how spiritual development could benefit from project management good practices. Rather than blog about spiritual development in general it was decided to focus on a specific goal, that of building a golem. The content of the blog combines examples of good practices and techniques in project management for self-development, in particular for advancing in understanding of Jewish mysticism and Kabbalah (esoteric Jewish studies). The blog tracks the author's journey in learning more about the general headings in Jewish esoteric thought called "Workings of the Chariot" and "Workings of Creation". These are two obscure schools of study about the vision of the seven Heavens by the prophet Ezekiel and the power of Divine names respectively.
