jeffrey mishlove


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 his early years in Berkeley in which he developed many friends who practiced witchcraft and other occult and esoteric arts. In 1970, Professor Frank X. Barron, shared a story with him about a witch — and encouraged him to study parapsychology. He discusses the tension between witchcraft and the Judeo-Christian culture with its various prohibitions. He also describes a major paradigm-shift in western culture with regard to witchcraft.
