Secrets Revealed: Clairvoyance, Magic and the Reality of Spirits
This collection of essays and lectures by renowned theosophist and occultist C.W. Leadbeater provides an educated insider's view not only of clairvoyance and the power of the mind, but also of black magic and white magic, and the perseverance of the spirit after death. Both intellectual and spiritual, Leadbeater's writings attempt to not simply explain these difficult and controversial subjects, but provide context and guidance. Always stressing the importance of education and training in these areas, he raises them above the conventional wisdom that they are fanciful arts. Secrets Revealed is a must-read for anyone interested in a serious consideration of New Age spiritual practices. English clergyman turned spiritualist CHARLES WEBSTER LEADBEATER (1854-1934) was ordained as an Anglican priest, but later joined the prominent Theosophical Society and traveled to India to study alternative spiritual and occult practices, eventually settling into his life as a clairvoyant and author. His other works include Man Visible and Invisible and The Science of the Sacrament.
