I am, I have to confess, completed mystified by mysticism – or, at least, its appeal. Still, there’s no doubt that certain mystical traditions have a long and relatively respectable pedigree. Probably that’s quite true of the Kabbalah, but not, I suspect, in the way apparently practiced by Madonna and other showbiz types.

“Models Jerry Hall and Naomi Campbell both wear the red bracelets the Kabbalah recommends to ward off negativity”

Oh, good heavens.

“Kabbalah products are sold, including skincare treatments at around GBP 50 each and Kabbalah mineral water with ‘centuries of wisdom in every drop’.


Middle Ages redux or Madonna deals with middle age? You decide. It sounds like complete bunkum to me.
