Does anyone know of a good English translation of Etz Chayim by the Arizal?

  • Do you have any reason to suspect this exists? – Double AA Feb 22 '15 at 16:47
  • I found one book from Amazon.com on the palace of Adam kadmon, link below. There is also the translation of shaar hagilgulim no chabads website. But the full etz chaim i havent seen anywhere.amazon.com/Tree-Life-Chayyim-Introduction-Kabbalah/dp/… – Levi Feb 22 '15 at 18:21

You can purchase an English version of the sefer here. It also includes some explanation of difficult passages and a clear introduction introducing the basics of kabbalah.

I am not certain if it contains everything that is in the original Sefer Etz Chayim by Chayim Vital, but it is a good start nonetheless. I have read the book, but I have never read the original ספר עץ חיים so I cannot vouch for its accuracy in that regard.
