View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Margaret Lumley Brown was an influential figure in Dion Fortune's Society of the Inner Light, and she took over many of Fortune's functions after the latter's death in 1946. She raised the arts of seership to an entirely new level and, with some justification, has been called the finest medium and psychic of the 20th century. Although she generally sought anonymity during her lifetime, her work provided much of the raw material for several of Gareth Knight's own books, most notably, The Secret Tradition in Arthurian Legend and A Practical Guide to Qabalistic Symbolism.

Here, gathered together by Gareth Knight for the first time in print, is a four-part record of the life and work of Margaret Lumley Brown. Part One presents the main biographical details of this fascinating figure, including the frightening way in which her natural psychism developed as a consequence of living in a haunted house. Part Two consists of articles written by her on such subjects as Dreams, Elementals, the Faery Kingdom, Healing and Atlantis. Part Three provides examples of her mediumship with trance addresses on topics as diverse as Elemental Contacts, Angels and Archangels, Greek and Egyptian gods, and the Holy Grail. Part Four is devoted to the occult side of poetry, with some examples of her own work.
