Marcia L. Pickands is a remarkably versatile teacher with training in psychology, theology, ceremonial magic, and many other esoteric, metaphysical and magical topics. In addition to her twentynine years experience as a psychic and spiritual adviser, and her twentytwo years as a mother, she has worked as an archaeological technician, an historic artifact analyst, a New Age bookstore owner, a NeoPagan High Priestess, and a martial arts master and teacher. She is one of the two spiritual successors to the late William G. Gray, renowned author of many fine books on magic and the Western Inner Tradition. In addition, Ms. Pickands is the current Senior Master of the Guardians, a WarriorPriest Order dedicated to preserving, protecting, and promoting the Way of Light within this world by doing Good and averting Evil.

Simple exercises that not only start readers on a path of psychic self-mastery, but also demonstrate the power of the mind, and the necessity of training it. Pickands teaches how to recognize psychic disturbance and the procedures for defense, in both everyday and extraordinary situations. She stresses ethical considerations, and illustrates her points with real life situations.
