Charles Webster Leadbeater (1847-1934) was a Church of England clergyman until he joined the Theosophical Society in 1883. He spent some years in Sri Lanka working for the revival of Buddhism, and later became the Presiding Bishop of the Liberal Catholic Church, which seeks to combine the preservation of the Catholic sacraments with the widest measure of freedom of thought and interpretation of the scriptures. He was a highly developed clairvoyant and the author of over thirty books on the spiritual life and on the psychic nature of man. He unfolded and perfected his own psychic faculties under the guidance of his Adept teacher and in 1893 began his clairvoyant investigations, on occasion collaborating with Annie Besant, the second President of the Theosophical Society. His worldwide lectures presented a new viewpoint to thousands of people. Kurt Leland, an award-winning poet and composer and author of five nonfiction books, has been called one of the world’s foremost experts on out-of-body experiences by What Is Enlightenment magazine. He maintains an intuitive counseling practice called ‘Spiritual Orienteering’ in the Boston area. Orienteering is the art of finding our way through a physical landscape without a map, using only a compass. Spiritual Orienteering expands that definition to include finding our way through the landscapes of our emotional, mental, and spiritual lives. Anodea Judith is the author of Eastern Body, Western Mind, The Sevenfold Journey, and Wheels of Life. She lives in Novato, California.
