The Unlikely Occultist
Discover the fascinating life of Alice Bailey: a long-forgotten occultist widely regarded as the Mother of the New Age.
In 1931, Alice is preparing to give a speech at a Swiss summer school. Soon after, she is put on Hitler’s blacklist. What Alice doesn’t realise is the enormity of her influence to the world, and the real enemies who are much closer than she thinks.
A dynamic and complex figure, Alice Bailey’s reach was huge. She was influential among people and organisations of global power, including the United Nations. Yet today she is maligned by fundamentalist Christians, Theosophists, Jews, academics and, above all, by conspiracy theorists.
Are any of these groups justified in rejecting the unlikely occultist?
