There are many whose talents, efforts, and generosity
have contributed to the creation of this
book. From its inception to its completion, I
have been fortunate to be assisted by the kind and dedicated
support of those many who gave so graciously and lovingly.
I am grateful to Dr. Valerie Hunt for her inspiration, for
providing me with the first opportunity to have my personal
experience of the chakras tested and corroborated scientifically,
and for her kind permission to include results of that research in
the text and Appendix of this volume; Lyle Brady for his critical
evaluation and valuable suggestions; and Terry Oleson for his
support. I wish to thank Gloria Orenstein and Karen Segal for
their astute observations and critiques and for sharing their scholarship
with me; Orville McKinley, M.D. for contributing his
knowledge of Navaho ceremony and teachings; Maria Bauer Hall
for sharing her convictions and the insights of work that has
spanned nearly half a century; Grace Fogg at ARE, Michael King
at the Theosophical Publishing House, and Rebecca Lang at the
Liverpool Museum for their kind and prompt assistance; and
Jaime Dunaway for his critical eye and enthusiastic encouragement.

I also gratefully acknowledge Charlotte Kaiser for her drawings,
and Debbie West and Paulette Kelly for their willingness
to do whatever was needed to prepare this manuscript for publication.
I am grateful to my researchers, Stephanie Roth, Shelby
Hammit, and Jeanne Farrens, for their long hours and excellent
abilities; to Kristen McCall, who cheerfully and tirelessly transcribed
over three thousand pages of lecture material; and to Ken
Weintrub for generously assisting me to hear my words as others
will when they read this book. I wish to further express my
gratitude to Robert E. Williams for his time and beautiful photographic
contributions; my deep appreciation to Susan Rothschild,
who can work miracles with light and a camera; and
grateful acknowledgment to Karen Haskin for her generosity, her
remarkable talent, and her exquisite illustrations. I am profoundly
grateful to Margie M. Smith for her computer drawings,
for her technical assistance, and, most especially, for having traveled
the path before me and for possessing the expertise to have
brought this book to publication.
I extend heartfelt appreciation to my editorial staff, Maria
Bartolotta, Susan Brown, and Jeanne Farrens for their dedication,
talents, and generosity, and sincerest gratitude to them for their
continued support, affection, and friendship. I would like especially
to acknowledge Jeanne Farrens, for her love of both language
and healing; her encouragement and commitment, more
than that of any other, assisted me in completing this work.
Finally, to those who lovingly supported me throughout this project,
and to all who patiently waited for this book, thank you.

The Ancient and Modern Mystery
In my twenty years as a healer and teacher, the one
question I can count on every new student to ask
is "What's a aura?" From antiquity there has been
a myriad of literary and pictorial descriptions of the aura. Sometimes
it has been depicted as a luminous radiation surrounding
the body. Frequently, it has been pictured as a kind of light around
the head—which some religious traditions call a halo. Most of
us are familiar with paintings of haloed Christian saints. In earlier
Chinese and Japanese art, a single and sometimes a triple halo
surrounds the head of images of the bodhisattva or Buddha. In
ancient Egyptian culture, the aura was often depicted as wings
enfolding the body. In Native American tradition, the radiant
aura of the buffalo has given rise to the legend of the white buffalo.
When Matthew (17:2) describes the transfiguration of Christ, he
says that Jesus's face "did shine as the sun," and "his raiment
was white as the light." Luke (9:29) adds that Jesus's raiment
was "glistering." This is a Biblical description of Christ's aura,
which the Apostles Peter, James, and John were able to see when
they were taken by their Master to a mountain just prior to his
People who are able to see auras have often reported seeing
a kind of luminous radiation surrounding an individual, usually
consisting of one or sometimes several colors. We now know that
the aura, or auric field, relates to the electromagnetic field, which
emanates from all matter. This field of energy, which usually
extends five or six inches around the body, is outside the range
of normal vision and in what is sometimes termed the realm of
psychic sight. But even those who can't see the aura can still
have an experience of it. The aura is what keeps us from bumping
our shopping carts into one another in the supermarket. It's what
allows us to sense another's presence in a darkened room, and
it's what makes someone turn to look at us across a crowded
