Cosmic & Mystical

by Robert Crookall 

Hardcover, 192 pp. 

"This work is concerned with cosmic and
mystical experiences, the 'highest' and most
significant of which we are capable."

"Human mystical experiences are here considered,
for the first time, in relation to the correlation
suggested in the author's first book The Supreme
, according to which, in addition to the familiar physical body (which provides 'normal' experiences, along with instinct, emotion and
reason), humans also possess a 'super-physical' Soul Body (with telepathy and clairvoyance) and a transcendent Spiritual Body (with cosmic and mystical experiences)."

The Study and Practice of Astral Projection The Study and Practice
of Astral Projection

by Robert Crookall
Paperback, 241pp.

"...the most comprehensive, systematic, objective and potentially epochal treatise yet to be published on the subject..." - Professor Hornell Hart, Duke University"

"The largest collections of accounts of astral projection have been amassed by Robert Crookall. In his many books. . . he has presented hundreds of cases....The implication of Crookall's argument is that there is an astral body, a vehicle of vitality and a silver cord, and that we survive death to live on a higher plane. He believed that insofar as such a thing could be proved, the many cases he had collected proved the existence of our other bodies." Out of Body Experience FAQ
