Body, Mind & Spirit / Religion / Interfaith / Paranormal
An in-depth look at psychic, mediumistic and miraculous powers in the world’s great mystical and wisdom traditions, which uncovers key insights into various teachings and practices. Aspects of Yogic, Hindu, Buddhist, Judaic, Sufi, Islamic and Christian spirituality, including miraculous events in the life of Jesus, are discussed in four main chapters. The realisation of universal divine consciousness and its profound implications are also drawn upon, along with various categories of supernormal phenomena that have been documented in both ancient and modern times.
This is a thoroughly revised edition that includes two extensive appendices of questions and answers with the internationally renowned medium and former Benedictine monk Glyn Edwards, in which he eloquently reflected upon various interwoven facets of unfoldment. In all, a beneficial Interfaith book that draws on both original sources and contemporary understanding.
