Scores of books have been written on the chakras - the psycho-energetic centers distributed along the spine, perceived clairvoyantly as wheels of light. Based on the teachings of Indian Tantra, the chakras have been used for centuries as focal points for healing, meditation, and achieving a gamut of physical. emotional, and spiritual benefits - from improved health to ultimate enlightenment.

Contemporary yoga teachers, energy healers, psychics, and self-help devotees think of the chakra system as thousands of years old. Yet the most common version in use in the West today came together as recently as 1977, the result of an unintentional, century-long collaboration between esotericists, clairvoyants, scholars of Indian philosophy, mythologists, psychologists, yogis, and energy healers.

Never before has the story been told of how the Western chakra system developed from its roots in Indian tantra, through Blavatsky to Leadbeater, Steiner to Alice Bailey, Jung to Joseph Campbell, Ramakrishna to Aurobindo, and Esalen to Shirley MacLaine and Barbara Brennan.

Kurt Leland  has written on astral projection, near-death experiences, and the transcendent possibilities of music. He is a National Lecturer for the Theosophical Society America, and a classical musician and composer. He maintains a consulting and teaching practice called 'Spiritual Orienteering'.
