About the Author

Mark H Pritchard was born in Wales and now lives in Australia. He writes with the name of his spiritual inner Being - Belzebuub. He is the founder and coordinator of the global metaphysical school Gnosticweb. His courses in Astral Travel and Dreams, Searching Within, Journey to Enlightenment and Advanced Esoteric Investigation are currently attended by thousands of people.

He has been teaching groups of people to Astral project since 1990, conducting lectures, study groups, and Internet courses. Now in this book he draws upon years of extensive experience, bringing together powerful and proven techniques to enable others to gain their own out-of-body-experiences and explore the hidden side of life.


More About the Author

Belzebuub (pronounced Bel-se-boob) is a contemporary mystic and esoteric teacher who imparts the powerful and timeless keys of esoteric knowledge and transformation, explained in a clear and objective way for today's mystical seekers.

He was born Mark H Pritchard in the UK and teaches with his spiritual name Belzebuub. From the age of eight he began reading spiritual texts, and as a child had psychic abilities and numerous paranormal encounters: "Many years ago, I decided that the most important thing for me to do in my life was to find truth and the spiritual. I had experiences that indicated there was more to life than I had been taught to believe, so I decided to dedicate myself to this search."

After searching through various spiritual schools and teachers, at the age of twenty-six he discovered profound esoteric teachings that described the path to enlightenment in a complete and whole form. Belzebuub learnt the powerful practices and techniques which mystics throughout the world and through the ages had used to awaken. He studied and practiced these over two decades to achieve a remarkable mystical transformation. Today he shares what he has learnt as a source of immense living wisdom and guidance.

In 1990 he founded and started teaching at study centers and retreats across the world. In 2000 websites were created with a series of online courses titled Astral Travel and Dreams, Searching Within, and Esoteric Wisdom in which his teachings were given as free downloadable pdfs. Attended by tens of thousands of people in over 100 different countries, they became the most popular courses of their kind on the internet at the time.

He is the author of a number of books on out-of-body experiences, dreams, self-knowledge, and awakening including A Course in Astral Travel and Dreams which became a bestseller in its genre--and has appeared on over 60 radio and television programs internationally.

In his teaching spirituality is an objective personal search in which the experience and attainment of divinity occurs within the individual. His message is of the timeless journey to enlightenment which has been written down in sacred texts, etched on the walls of temples, and taught from guru to disciple since humanity first existed.

Titles by Belzebuub:
Gazing into the Eternal: Reflections Upon a Deeper Purpose to Living
A Course in Astral Travel and Dreams: A Reference to the Out-of-Body Experience
The Peace of the Spirit Within: A Guide to Transform Your Life

Customer Reviews

Highly recommended to anyone who wants practical techniques rather than lots of theory.
David Gardner
It's truly amazing when you get it right and can verify all the things said about the Astral for yourself.
Jordan
What is great about this book is that it doesn't just teach you techniques for astral projection.

"A Course in Astral Travel and Dreams" by Belzebuub is a hands-on approach to spiritual awakening. In an extremely clear and concise fashion, the author lays out definitions of the various spiritual dimensions and encourages every reader with step-by-step exercises to consciously leave their bodies at night.

The book is broken down into nine week sessions. In each chapter, Belzebuub explains the topic (such as what astral travel and dreams actually are), then includes a question and answer section from actual students in previous courses. The Q&A adds an interactive component to the book, giving the reader the answer to his own questions without actually having to ask them. I found this part particularly useful as it answered questions raised in my mind throughout the chapter. There is some repetition in the author's answers, but the patient reader will forgive him for that. It serves to reinforce the simplicity of the exercise. An additional section follows the Q&A which outlines the exercise of the week. The author offers practical Web link references such as the sound of the mantra the reader should repeat, thereby enhancing the entire reading experience.

"A Course in Astral Travel and Dreams" should be taken as an augmentation to the free online course offered at [...] I imagine most readers would lose confidence without the interaction of a group setting as it is extremely difficult to follow through with the exercises without guided support. The book offers novice astral travellers a chance to taste a new dimension and raise their awareness to a level they never knew existed before reading the book.

This is not your typical out-of-body experience book. It challenges the reader to probe the spiritual realm in a methodical and purposeful way.

I had tried many times with many different techniques to project and failed again and again. I could barely even remember my dreams and I was about to give up when I found this guide and thought I had nothing left to lose. I was very skeptical because I thought that astral projection was just a figment of people's imaginations, and so I was surprised and excited to find that after trying these practices I started to get success and experience the astral for myself!

This guide gave me what other websites and books about astral travel did not. It gave me down-to-earth, practical and very effective techniques to explore astral travel and lucid dreaming. Through allowing me to get experiences, it also showed me that there is so much more there is to life than what we can experience through our five senses; so much information and potential that can really enhance your existence.

One of the best things I found about this book is that you're not just expected to believe what is written, but you're encouraged to go out and investigate for yourself, and then shown how to do this. And then it's just up to you to follow the course and do the exercises and experience Astral Travel for yourself!

Highly recommended to anyone who wants practical techniques rather than lots of theory. And don't give up if you've never managed to experience the astral, I hadn't no matter how many times I tried until I found this guide. And the second edition is even better than the first!

To many amazing experiences!

I came across the techniques in this book in the form of a free on-line course at [...] I subsequently purchased this book as a handy reference to go back to.

This book is very different from any of the other books I have looked at. It leaves the theory at a minimum and cuts straight to the chase, which is how to actually experience the astral plane! What is great about this book is that it doesn't just teach you techniques for astral projection. Rather, if you follow it like it suggests, it helps you understand how to develop the discipline and concentration needed to consistently experience the astral, which believe it or not, is something anyone can do if they actually apply them self to it.

Using the techniques in this book and practicing in a disciplined way, in only three or so years I have been able to have literally hundreds of out of body experiences, and experience the astral on a very regular basis, whereas before I came across this information I had never experienced anything like that in my entire life.

What is given in this book can truly change your life if you are willing to put in the effort to unlock it.

This course on Astral Travel and Dreams has been the best thing I've found to date. After searching the net frantically looking for information on how to consciously leave my body, I found this course. Although I managed to get out and have a rather hazy experience prior to doing it, it wasn't till I applied myself to the techniques on it - and specifically on -it- - that I began to have clear and amazing Astral experiences. It is very good, clear and down-to-earth, with techniques that work. And a book that comes with a free interactive online course too? It has my vote!

Format: Hardcover
A very interesting and informative book - I don't think I could have learned to Astral project without these methods. The step-by-step approach did a lot to de-mystify the process, and made Astral projection seem very possible to experience. There's also a lot of useful advice and Q&A in the book that has inspired me to keep trying to improve my abilities.

The steps are quite straightforward and explained in plain English - making the techniques work is an individual thing, but I've found they do work very well with effort. It has been quite incredible to experience being out of my physical body, and to explore another dimension. The experience out there is really magical - it's the kind of thing that changes your whole worldview. There's a lot more to life than I once imagined.

If you're looking to gain some experience in the Astral, you'd be hard pressed to find a better book.
