About the Book
Visions of Atlantis: Reclaiming our Lost Ancient Legacy (2022)
People the world over have grappled with the story of Atlantis for millennia, and Visions of Atlantis provides a unique and compelling glimpse into what might have been. Clairvoyant impressions from Edgar Cayce, Rudolf Steiner, Barbara Hand Clow and others, as well as a novel cross-examination of Frederick Oliver's clairaudient 1886 text, A Dweller on Two Planets , supplement a concerted scientific, philosophical and historical investigation of humanity's antediluvian achievements and Atlantis' tragic demise.
At the same time, readers will see just how the story of Atlantis has evolved from the seminal account passed down by Plato almost 2,400 years ago into those of the present day, as we engage with some of its strongest proponents and harshest critics alike. More than just a dry catalog of Atlantean footnotes, Visions of Atlantis strikes at the core of the great divide between materialist reductionism and the frontiers of metaphysics, enjoining readers to reconsider some of their most deeply held beliefs about psychic phenomena, reincarnation, and the vast unknown past.
