Bnei Baruch World Center For Kabbalah Studies. On-line lessons on the Lurianic Kabbalah, by the students of the early 20th century Lurianic teacher
Rabbi Yehudah Ashlag. You'll find abundant information on every aspect of this tradition of Kabbalah. Even has special music. A very large site, there is heaps of material here, all presented with quite a religious slant though. Even so, this is perhaps the best Orthodox Kabbalah site around
Some very interesting and detailed metaphysical material here - Ten Kabbalah Lessons - Part II
Note - some of this material is so obscure it is impossible to understand!!!! I would recommend perusing their Beginner's Guide to Kabbalah before going on to some of the harder stuff.

(admittedly, i am most interested in the hebrew and more orthodox insights into the subject, however i think to me it's quite obvious that at the core of kabbalah is a never-ending interpretation, even by anyone- a midrash that is balanced and filtered by the traditional. however, anyone with a beginning or advanced interest in what they deem "kabbalah" is welcome.)"

The Meru Foundation - presents one of those amazing paradigms which link up all kinds of disparate themes, scientific, religious, metaphysical... I quote
"The Meru Project is based on 25 years of research by Stan Tenen into the origin and nature of the Hebrew alphabet, and the mathematical structure underlying the sequence of letters of the Hebrew text of Genesis. The Project is sponsored by the Meru Foundation, a private nonprofit research and educational corporation founded in 1983."
Although not specifically Kabbalistic as such, the use of Hebrew Letters as keys to the structure of reality is a very kabbalistic idea.
Pi the Movie - a film about mathematics, Kabbalah, and the relationship between numbers and reality. This is a really nicely presented side. A lot of thought-provoking ideas here Buy the DVD!
Kabbalistic Cosmology and its parallels in the Big-Bang of Modern Physicsby Adam McLean - I remember reading this article in Adam McLean's excellent little magazine The Hermetic Journal (now available on CD-ROM), and it made a huge impression on me. Mainly because this paper approached the physics-mysticism synthesis not from the conventional standard New Age /New Paradigm "Tao of Physics" slant used so successfully by Frithjof Capra in his famous book of the same name, but from the rather more difficult, but also more fascinating, perspective of Lurianic Dramaturgy. The physics is a little dated (Alan Guth's Big Bang Inflation theory that was an exciting new development when the article was written has long since been superceded by more sophisticated developments) but the basics principles remain valid.
Kabbalah and the Tree of Life - some observations which relate to two different versions of the tree, here called the A and H shaped trees.
