My parents won't allow me to go to the Kabbalah Center, so is there any online places I could learn more about Kabbalah?

If you can get it Don Michael Kraig's Modern Magic has a pretty good bit about it throughout the book.

The best book I know of to start learning about the Kabbalah is "The Chicken Qabalah of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford" by Lon Michael DuQuette. I presents the basics of the Kabbalah in both an easily understood and an entertaining manner. You can find the book on-line at http://www.illuminatiorderoto.com/resources/DuQuette- Chicken - Qabalah .pdf

I'd also suggest this website as a good resource: http://www.digital-brilliance.com/about/intro.php

If the fact that the spellings are often difficult is confusing, understand that the Hebrew language is phonetic which means that one can often find words spelled differently but with the same meaning. Kabbalah, Cabala, Quaballan are all the same thing.

DuQuette's book is the best introduction for Hermetic qabalah by far, however, his focus is primarily on the Hebrew letters. If it is Hermetic qabalah you are interested in "The Kabbalah of the Golden Dawn" by Pat Zalewski is a magnificent read.

Barring these options, Q.B.L. by Frater Achad is a great introduction and one can see where DuQuette drew some of his inspiration, this can be found here:

http://hermetic.com/achad/qbl/qbl-or-the-brides-reception.htm

The appendix is thought to be nonsense by most, but the rest is considered sound.

You also have Dion Fortune's in-depth classic, "The Mystical Qabalah" which can be found here:

http://illuminatiorderoto.com/resources/Dion-Fortune-Mystical-Qabala.pdf

And there is this video by Lon Milo Duquette which covers many of the concepts he has written about, however, the book is of course more indepth:

A kabbalah centre will most likely teach you jewish kabbalah which is more about the mystical interpretation of scripture. This is not the sort most magical practitioners get involved in because it is not practical knowledge really, more just theoretical. A good few books for this sort would be "The Bahir" and "Sepher Yetzirah" there are many translations but I prefer Aryeh Kaplan's. Then of course "The Zohar" but that is quite a read!

Thank you so much, everyone. I really appreciate it. I read the book Lark recommended me and I'm still confused as ever. I feel like I'm doing everything wrong.

Jumping from Witchcraft to Hoodoo to Kaballah in a month is a lot on the Brain,why don't You get a book on general Basics and focus on that and in the meantime study paths online
Until something clicks

I get You,I'm Exactly the same way
And like you I bounced around so much in the beginning
It set me back years of practice because I just kept reading,learning on and on,finally Dion Fortune in one of her books
Said beginners need to find one working system and stick with it u til they master it,then add on and move on
So that was what I did and that's how I became an actual practicing Mage and not just an avid reader.
