comment Mystical Practices within Kabbalah: Is There a “Ceremony of Remembrance”?
sure. just keep in mind that without a proper learning seder in talmud, you won't get far with these practices and may even become "strange". talmud study is needed like bread. see this audio by Rav Nissan Kaplan ravkaplan.dafyomireview.com/cdd/mussar/5769-Mussar/…

highly recommended. see also meditation and the bible by Aryeh Kaplan afterwards. and also the fourth gate of shaarei kedusha but that has scary stuff... rabbi kaplan's other books probably have alot more but those are the ones i know.

comment Neviyim and Kesuvim are Torah Shebiksav?
they also existed before sinai. we find the patriarchs darshaned them such as after the birth of yosef, yaakov decided to leave lavan as rashi brings down there.

comment Jewish alternative to a Christian self-help book
how about miriam adahan books? best is to stay away from non-jewish books as they contain a taaruvot of other junk and you cannot be sure where it will lead you.

comment Why were there so many killings by Jews in the Old Testament?
@ShimonbM i answered the question by showing its premise is false. what is morally repugnant about it? I stand by my view that what is morally repugnant is to be merciful to the cruel. in fact, this is stated in the talmud. [Comment edited by moderator]

@Shmuel "the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are justice: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He" deut. 32:4 who are we to judge God's ways?
