Format: Paperback
I read this book, and thought, yep I can relate to that..and that...and that!
Geoff (or Tareth) as he is now known, is an amazing spiritual ambassador, and a grounded common sense, no airs bloke! This book is his story, telling a warts and all tale of the transformation he went through after dying as a child then being resusitated, to discover that he had healing, and alchemical abilities.
He then continues in sharing his views on life, spirituality and the rest.
I wont fill you in any more, but if you get a chance, read this book, you will not be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Geoff's personal history gives a lovely and colourful insight into his life experiences. The ideas and "new view" of our lives, our planet and our universe are both disturbing and potential reassuring. He tackles many questions that I have asked over the course of my life and my personal development and can only hope his next book is to follow soon.

the messenger 10 Dec. 1999
By deepak - Published on
Format: Paperback
Geoff Boltwood is an extraordinary healer, teacher and loving intermediary of 'The Source'. He has travelled to many countries to set up centres of light. When he was five, he died of nephritis. But it was a short death, one that deposited him back on life's shores. During his death experience Boltwood was filled with an energy which he later called 'The Source Energy' or 'Tareth'. It is this energy that he's now trying to distribute to people like himself.
Boltwood has been successfully tested and filmed for his psychic and healing abilities. During healing sessions he is able to materialise vibhutis of aromatic oils and crystals (some people also call him Sai Baba of the West). Boltwood recommends the use of crystals during meditations, so that a link is formed between The Source and the planet Earth. At times the crystals that he produces are also known to emit music.
According to Boltwood, Tareth has the key to interpret major changes occurring on the planet. People who wish to make a commitment to spiritual development at a deep level can connect to this energy to understand their true self and also to unlock the secrets that are buried in the sands of time. Those who are open to the energy of change are the ones who get to be reborn.
The most important thing to do, says Boltwood, is to connect your mind to the infinite mind. This does not mean that the infinite mind starts controlling you, it works more like a parent minding his many children, each according to his own personality and destiny. The infinite mind is envisaged as a stream that flows out from The Source, but it is only infinite when viewed from the vortex. The vortex is a creative force that has created everything within itself - it contains infinite potential, in that it can be realised in all life forms, as well as all in other dimensions of existence.
The Source is a point of this infinite being. Our future, reasons the originator of The Source, depends not on any god or The Source for that matter but on our cooperation with The Source. Meaning, man is his own saviour. The work of Geoff Boltwood is to show the way, to change perceptions, to show what is possible, what is available without compulsion or submission.
Tareth, explains Boltwood, does not represent a person but an individualised form. It is The Source Energy that is implanted in all dimensions of the vortex. And this is a multidimensional link that gives to those, who have Source Energy, the ability to change people. One of the purposes of Boltwood's Tareth Centres is healing, which according to Boltwood is the most powerful, caring and loving force that can change people. Geoff can also go into other dimensions or bilocate i.e. he can be in two places at the same time. When bilocation occurs Boltwood becomes translucent, his body less dense and still, although he retains consciousness at these times.
In the Boltwood scheme of things, future humans will be able to bilocate at will due to their natural state of lightness. He also foresees a change in the energy of the planet, a reduction of population and total self-empowerment of mankind in the nest 200-300 years. And what's more, there'll be no catastrophes, no ominous prophecies, but only choices.

Geoff as a healer 25 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was diagnosed at the age of 29 with a brain tumor. The cancer was so terrible that I was given a very poor prognosis. Through much research, I found Geoff Boltwood in Glastonbury, England. He and I had a healing session that was too phenominal for words.
I'm here five years later and healthier than I've ever been. Besides Geoff as a gentle, compassionate person, the book is great!

Worth to read! 18 Aug. 2013
By Cindy la Fleur - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was an very awesome experience to read! A special way, you get the insight what can happen when spiritual energy is shifted on an "higher" level. You read about a development of an honest healer, with scientific related exploration. He has an amazing gift- to materialize different things. He also writes about his time in spiritualists churches, what he has experienced there, without to be trapped in those belief - systems, it is just a step in his own development. Also occult stuff he is able to show the way how he perceives this. What happen when it happens and what is the real basis of this perception. I don't know, if you ever asked yourself, are spirits in the unseen world out there and do they the wired stuff to floating tables and whatever else in spiritual stuff can happen... When you want to know, what is our reality like - he can tell, because is is not bonded to the reality like the most of us. Dimensions/parallel worlds with their own realities are reachable for him, the knowledge beyond this dimensions. To the source outside our reality / dimension "box". His explanations to this "outside box" thinking are really mindboggling, it shifts the readers own thinking. It is up to your own, to think, if that migh be true to you or not, much more important is to reflect on his thought, reflect on new deeply seated questions. I am sure, it boggles your reality you get a new impression of that what everyone calls own reality or matrix. It is an adventure to read!

A Wonderful Experience 4 Mar. 2013
By T. W. - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read his book after it was published and was so impressed I decided to travel to the UK to see the author in person.
I had the honor of meeting Geoff Boltwood 8-8-01 in Glastonbury. The healing session was wonderful and I would highly recommend a session with him if possible. He is such a kind soul and the book is a must read.
