Spirit Communication: The Soul's Path

Kevin Ryerson, Author, Stephanie Harolde, With Bantam Books $18.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-553-05388-3
Ryerson, a California medium, or trance channeler, claims to be the outlet through which the following spirit-entities speak: John, an apostle of Jesus; Aton-Re, adviser to Egyptian pharaoh Akhnaton; a Haitian herbalist named Obadiah; Tom MacPherson, an Irish pickpocket from Shakespearean England; oriental teacher Japu; et al. Their voices, as recorded in this hodgepodge, sound remarkably alike as they expound on love, the soul, soul mates, the law of karma, achieving an androgynous personality, past lives and so forth. With an assist form freelancer Harolde, Ryerson, who figures prominently in Shirley MacLaine's books, describes the mechanics of mediumship and outlines a theory of mind that accentuates the superconscious. His informally presented philosophy is a smorgasbord that draws freely from such sources as Buddhism, Edgar Cayce, Jung, the legend of Atlantis and Judeo-Christian tradition. (Sept.)
