The issue of death haunts most human beings, quite unnecessarily. It is widely thought that no one has ever returned from the dead to tell us what to expect, but this itself is a false leap into ignorance and doubt. We have repeatedly been given ample clues about death throughout the ages and this book by Dion Fortune is one of the best. The author was a trained esotericist with practical experience in clinical psychology. She was able to use her clairevoyant skills to observe the withdrawal of the spiritual connection from the physical body at the time of death, and track it as it refocused its consciousness at more subtle, refined but very much alive levels of being. She was also able to use her skills of past-life recall to remember having died, and been reborn, many, many times over thousands of years. She has poured the insight she gained from this research into this profound book, Through the Gates of Death.

About the Author:

Dion Fortune is the pen name of Violet Firth, one of the most mysterious and significant figures of the British esoteric tradition of the early twentieth century. Born in Llandudno, Wales, in 1890, she exhibited strong psychic tendencies even as a child. She decided at an early age to pursue a career in nursing, which led her to an interest in human psychology. She became an early Freudian, but soon saw the limitations of psychoanalysis and pursued the deeper implications of human psychology in occult and magical traditions. Raised on Christian Science, she gravitated first toward Theosophy and then to the Order of the Golden Dawn, where she became an initiate and received the hieratic name of Deo Non Fortuna, which eventually became her pen name, Dion Fortune. In 1922, she formed her own esoteric society, The Society of the Inner Light. Dion Fortune s legacy is her writings, both fiction and nonfiction. In nonfiction, her books Psychic Self-Defence, The Mystical Qabalah, Through the Gates of Death, and Esoteric Philosophy of Love and Marriage still stand, 75 years later, as the premier statements on their respective subjects.
