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 relates how, when he was in his early 20s, he became fascinated with the idea of spending a lengthy amount of time in solitary isolation. The inspiration for this was a magical grimoire call The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage. He made a study of accounts of people living alone. Eventually, he spent one week alone on Mount Shasta in northern California. This experience was important for character development.
