Recently, as a bit of a change of pace, I wrote a foreword for the Cornerstone Book Publishers edition of The Astral Plane by C.W. Leadbeater. Leadbeater was a fascinating figure, originally a young English minister, who became one of the leaders, along with Helena Blavatsky and Annie Besant, of the Theosophy Society towards the end of the nineteenth century. In The Astral Plane, Leadbeater gives a rather matter-of-fact roadmap through the Astral Plame, a place he describes as the closest spiritual dimension to our physical sphere. It’s a fascinating and enlightening read for anyone even remotely interested in esoteric studies.
