My Qabalistic knowledge comes mostly from McGregor Mathers 'Kabbalah Unveiled', Gareth Knights 'Practical Guide to Qabalistic Symbolism', the woks of Crowley, Manchester Central Libraries transalated Sepher Zohar (only tiny bits of dipping in there!), and my own workings. At the tiem there wasn't much more available.
In studying Kabalah, a number of texts are, in my personal view, essential, and many others are just plain great.
Any texts by G. Scholem will provide a solid historical foundation (even if some of his views are not universally accepted, and if he himself would undoubtedly alter some given some more recent studies). He virtually singlehandedly placed the subject as something worthy of investigation in academic circles.
Books by Moshe Idel are also of exceedingly high value.
And, of course, Aryeh Kaplan, especially his translation and commentary on the Bahir and the Sefer Yetzirah - each essential reading.
I would also commend Halevi (Warren Kenton)'s works, though not in the same way as I would the above.
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

foriamhim: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
