InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.
Here he describes the active community of occultists with whom he associated in the early 1970s in Berkeley, California. One Berkeley student, Isaac Bonewits, wrote a book called “Real Magic”. Aleister Crowley’s writings were popular. Jeffrey describes a harrowing experience in which he invoked magical principles in order to correct an injustice. While his goal was accomplished, the process taught him not to play with lower forms of magick.
