Hidden Treasure - Out of This World

Book coverOut of This World: Otherworldly Journeys from Gilgamesh to Albert Einstein by I. P. Couliano

From Homer to Dante to Swami Yogananda, from Hades to the Seventh Heaven to LSD trips, the late scholar of altered states takes us on a journey through the wild world of ecstatic visionary experiences as they've occurred throughout the ages and around the globe. More fascinating than their intriguing variety is the fact that they always seem to happen. No age, land, culture, or religious tradition has been without some of them.
