2.0 out of 5 stars Flight of a day dreamer, 28 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flying without a Broom (Paperback)
The book starts with the history of astral projection, before describing the many astral places that one can visit. There is a special emphasis on healing.
However, it all seems second hand: there is very little of her personal experiences. I had the uncomfortable feeling that this was a book that drew mainly from other books. This is not a book that surprises. For example, there is a description of a visit to a Greek Temple. However, nothing that is written about this temple is not something that one could not have read about elsewhere from a history book. The ommission of any particular insights or surprises robs the book of vitality. Right through the book, I was wishing to hear of her own experiences, rather than generalized descriptions. The few anecdotes that are interesting come from fellow colleagues.
Also as another reviewer found, the author underestimates the practical aspects of astral travel. For the author, astral travel is almost as simple as closing ones eyes. Now I read some other books on Astral travel, where the authors give their personal experiences and nowhere is it as easy as made out in this book.
This superficial treatment of the mechanics of astral projection leads me to rather recommend Robert Peterson or William Buhlman.
