Modern Theosophy and the Ancient Wisdom Tradition.
Praise for The Secret Gateway, portal to the wisdom of the inner self.
Edward Abdill simplifies the essence of Theosophy using the power and beauty of story. He points out that we need a very different kind of science – a “science of spirit” – to explore the inner world of consciousness. With sensitivity and insight, he opens a “secret gateway” to spiritual wisdom. I invite you to step through. If you do, chances are your life will never be the same.
– Christian de Quincey, Ph.D., Professor of Consciousness Studies, John F. Kennedy University; author, “Radical Nature and Radical Knowing”
Ed Abdill explains Theosophical principles with a masterful lucidity, reducing the metaphysics of space and time, causality, field theory, and the structures of consciousness into their most basic elements. The result is a rich experience for the beginner and the aficionado alike.
– Victoria LePage, author, “Shambhala: The Fascinating Truth Behind the Myth of Shangri-la
In an amazing tour de force, Edward Adbill guides us through the maze of Theosophical thought from the beginnings of manifestation to the work of every individual aspiring to ascend the spiritual path. He speaks directly to both intellect and heart in today´s language, with none of the jargon so often shrouding metaphysical ideas. Throughout, one feels Ed is speaking not just of abstract principles, but of a living philosophy, eminently useful in daily life. Here, indeed, is Theosophy for the twenty-first century!

Edward Abdill is a former director of the Theosophical Society in America and past president of the Theosophical Society in New York City, where he teaches. He lectures throughout the United States and internationally.
