Madame Blavatsky: The Mother of Modern Spirituality


Madame Blavatsky: The Mother of Modern Spirituality

“This biography is superb, and immense fun from beginning to end. Reading it, you are constantly reminded how hugely influential Blavatsky has been on our own time, and pleased at her sheer outrageousness and joie de vivre. Reading Gary Lachman’s book left me aching for more lives lived with such daring, such drama and such pleasure.”  – Universal Heart Book Club 
“Dense and exhaustive, a valiant attempt to capture the essence of a life that defies simple retelling.”
—Kirkus Reviews
Because of Blavatsky’s involvement with the Spiritualist movement in America in the latter half of the 19th Century, Lachman’s account of her life also adds clarity to the murky waters which mixed and matched spiritualism and occultism during that time. His history of the spiritualist movement and secret societies during the time that Blavatsky was involved with them is a valuable contribution, in and of itself, to esoteric history. This is a must read for any one with a serious interest in Western esoteric spirituality.”
