Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 185327030X, Paperback)

First published in 1918 this masterpiece by one of the major figures in the western occult tradition discusses concepts that anticipated the modern human potential movement by half a century. Russell taught what we would call creative visualization and believed that the creative powers of imagination could become a passport to other worlds. This study of the true nature of visionary exploration will appeal to the artist and the poet as well as the mystic.
