InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.
Here Jeff describes the British occultist, poet, and mountaineer Aleister Crowley (1875 - 1947) as an important counter-culture influence in the 1970s. Crowley was an early forerunner of the sexual revolution and promoted the use of both sex and various drugs in the context of magickal rituals. He believed himself to be the inaugurator of a new era for humanity in which individuals would seek to align their own free will with the will of the cosmos.
