Journey into the underlying themes of J.K Rowling's fantastically successful Harry Potter series. Drawing from her unique background and personal experiences, the author provides original insights into the mysticism, magic and symbolism within the world of Harry Potter. Dr. Geo Trevarthen has painstakingly researched the Potter craze, going far beyond the normal criteria and into a world of real magic and its shamanic past. She reveals the origins of many of the elements found within the novels. Dr. Trevarthen developed and teaches the course on Harry Potter at the University of Edinburgh.
