After an introduction about The Astral World, Tyson divides his work into two parts: Part One: History and Part Two: Practice. If you are interested on this book because of the practice, you can go ahead to Part Two. However, as the author suggest at the end of the introduction, you may want to take a look that the history. In my opinion, if you miss that part, you may be missing the most interesting part of this book. This is not to say that the practice section is bad, but this book is mainly a summary of history and a collection of techniques in a single volume.
Part One consists of nine chapters and cover the basis, starting with shamanism, going through spiritualism, crossing over Golden Dawn hermetics, presenting the CIA's remote viewing projects, and confronting UFO Abductions. This last chapter was the one that captured my attention, as I was very interested about Tyson's opinion on this subject and how he tied it to Astral Projection.
As I mention earlier, Part Two is not bad, but Part One captivated my interest more. Part Two guides us through several tools and techniques to bring about Astral Projection. Since I'm interested on Tarot and Runes a like, these chapters sealed the deal for me. In these chapters Tyson describes how to use Tarot Trumps or Runes as doorways to the Astral Worlds.
In all, I liked this book for what it is, an overview on Astral Projection history and techniques. It may not be as good as other books that tackle a specific ideology/technique, but that should not be a surprise.
This does not mean that out of body travel is not 'real' it simply means that Mind is bigger than you can think.
I've been astral travelling for many years and I can verify that his basic premise is sound. Thinking that you have to somehow squeeze yourself out of your physical body is a major obstacle that prevents you from experiencing the astral in its more subtle aspects. Imagination is the key (which is why the basic training of all magicians is in the imaginal realm).
The only weakness was a tendency to pad the book with too many examples. I would have liked more personal experiences, explaining how astral travel can be used to enhance one's spiritual and material development.
Sex and Light: How to Google your way to Godhood
Clear precise practices are shown as to how to work with his theories and perhaps find a better way to reach the astral realms for people who have had difficulties the other ways.
Would recommend to anyone who has a library of paranormal works and pracitices and happenings.
I particularly like his shamanic approach to achieving an OBE, and his focus on the importance of ritual. Ritual is something I've struggled with, but in reading this book I can understand the importance, and his methods are simple instead of extravagant.
This is a very well written, entertaining, and educational book that I believe will help many obtain OBE's. I think I've succeeded in a possible OBE through the Shamanic path, and have no doubt that Donald's methods are helping me in my journeys.
