After finding herself the subject of a powerful psychic attack, Dion Fortune wrote this detailed instruction manual in the 1930's for safeguarding yourself against pararmal malevolence. Fortune explores the elusive psychic element in mental illness and, more importantly, details the methods, motives and physical aspects of psychic attack and how to overcome this energy. The revised edition of this New Age classic includes an index and an additional explanatory te for contemporary readers. Chapters include: Signs of a Psychic Attack, Vampirism, Hauntings, The Psychic Element in Mental Disturbance and Methods of Defense.
Dion Fortune (1891-1946), founder of The Society of the Inner Light, a Society for the study of Metaphysical Religion, Mysticism and Esoteric Psychology, is recognised as one of the most luminous figures of 20th century esoteric thought. A prolific writer, pioneering psychologist and powerful psychic, she dedicated her life to the revival of the Western Mystery Tradition. She was also a member of the Order of the Golden Dawn, whose members included at various times such people as A.E. Waite, Aleister Crowley and W. B. Yeats.
