Experiencing the Texts of Alice A. Bailey


This book is an edited and revised version of Isobel Blackthorn’s PhD dissertation The Texts of Alice A. Bailey: An inquiry into the role of esotericism in transforming consciousness.

I’m delighted to share my doctoral thesis on the mother of the New Age Alice Bailey now in book format. I’ve revised and improved some chapters, and I’ve kept the core chapters on Amelia Hewman the same. The result is a much more readable version.

The original PhD has been downloaded over 6,200 times via Western Sydney University’s library! That’s almost unheard of. Most PhDs get read at best ten times.

About Experiencing the Texts of Alice A. Bailey

Experiencing the Texts of Alice A. Bailey offers an in-depth exploration of the theosophical teachings that inspired the New Age. 

Adopting a holistic approach, Blackthorn delves into Bailey’s esoteric cosmology, explores the spiritual path, and tackles some of the more controversial aspects of the Bailey teachings. 

Profound and reflective, this book is perfect for students of the teachings and those interested in spiritual and esoteric teachings more broadly.
