Almost everyone has had dreams of flying or falling. It’s a common and universal experience. For centuries mystics have maintained that such dreams are more than dreams. They referred to this ‘dream’ environment the Astral World and the experience, Astral Projection. Today modern researchers are starting to sound like these ancient occultists when speculating upon the powers of the human senses to transcend the limits of the body. There is perhaps no aspect of magick and mysticism that is more fascinating and important then these out of body experiences (OBEs), and one of the finest introductions to this amazing subject is Swami Panchadasi’s (William Walker Atkinson) classic,“The Astral World”.

Product Details

Meet the Author

William Walker Atkinson was an attorney, merchant, publisher, and author, as well as an occultist and an American pioneer of the New Thought movement. Atkinson was a prolific writer, and his many books achieved wide circulation among New Thought devotees and occult practitioners. He published under several pen names, including Magus Incognito, Theodore Sheldon, Theron Q. Dumont, Swami Panchadasi, Yogi Ramacharaka, Swami Bhakta Vishita, and probably other names not identified at present. He is also popularly held to be one (if not all) of the Three Initiates who anonymously authored The Kybalion.
His work primarily focused on occultism, divination, psychic reality, and mankind's nature, or, what Atkinson called: "New Psychology" or "New Thought". Titles include Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World, and Practical Psychomancy and Crystal Gazing: A Course of Lessons on the Psychic Phenomena of Distant Sensing, Clairvoyance, Psychometry, and Crystal Gazing.

He is also gifted singer songwriter and recording artist whose material continues to inspire and provoke.

Since 1975 he as been a national and international governing officer of Ordo Templi Orientis, one of the most influential magical societies of the 20th Century. He is currently the O.T.O.’s United States Deputy Grand Master. He is an internationally recognized authority on tarot and western ceremonial magick.

DuQuette appears occasionally on television and radio as a guest expert on subjects involving the occult, and is arguably the most visible spokesperson for the arcane sciences. He is a contributor to the Magical Egypt DVD series and a host on the new series, The Great Work.
