The Astral World: Magical Antiquarian, A Weiser Books Collection

Front Cover

Master of modern occultism, Lon Milo DuQuette, (author of Enochian Vision Magick

and

The Magick of Aleister Crowley

) introduces the newest Weiser Books Collection – The Magical Antiquarian Curiosity Shoppe. Culled from material long unavailable to the general public, DuQuette curates this essential new digital library with the eye of a scholar and the insight of an initiate.

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”.

About the author (2012)

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.
