Michael Grosso, PhD, is author of The Man Who Could Fly: St. Joseph of Copertino and the Mystery of Levitation. He also edited and wrote commentary for Wings of Ecstasy: Dominico Bernini’s Vita of St. Joseph of Copertino (1772). His other books include The Millennium Myth: Love and Death and the End of Time, Final Choice: Death or Transcendence?, Soulmaking: Uncommon Paths to Self Understanding and Smile of the Universe: Miracles in an Age of Disbelief.
Here he points out that numerous pathways exist by which individuals come into a dialogical relationship with what is sometimes called the subconscious, spirit, higher consciousness, or transcendent realty. He describes the southern USA practice of snake handling and drinking poisonous substances as one such example. The visions of Joan of Arc that led a teenage girl to command an army represent another example. The discussion also focuses on mediumship and channeling.
