Book Review: The Seth Material

For those new to the ideas of spiritualism, looking for a spiritual teacher, or just even a new voice and perspective with which to view their lives, I can easily recommend The Seth Material. It’s a fascinating narrative and look at an intimate phenomenon that helped, well, “launch the new age.” Seth stands as one of the most renowned psychic personalities since he first started talking.
