A Most Unusual Life: Dora Van Gelder Kunz: Clairvoyant, Theosophist, Healer
Born on a sugar plantation in Java at the turn of the 20th century, psychic, alternative healer, and writer Dora van Gelder Kunz was to become one of the most unique and unforgettable women of her age.
This biography traces her life from her signs of clairvoyant ability in early childhood through her pioneering development, with Delores Krieger, of Therapeutic Touch; her presidency of the Theosophical Society in America; and, finally, her death at ninety-five.
Among her several seminal books in the genre of modern esoteric literature are "The Real World of Fairies, The Personal Aura," and "Spiritual Healing."
Those who knew Dora were captivated by her blunt honesty, tremendous perception, deep compassion, and infinite capacity for hilarity. As this book lovingly chronicles, hers was indeed a most unusual life.
"Dora van Gelder Kunz was a driving force in the worlds of alternative healing and Theosophy until her death in 1999. Dora had a privileged childhood, growing up on a plantation in Java, catered to by servants, yet isolated from other children. She ended her life in much simpler circumstances, having turned her attention to the practice of energetic healing and spirituality. She learned to meditate at the age of five and soon after began developing her clairvoyant abilities. She was a student of C. W. Leadbeater, and an associate of Krishnamurti and Geoffrey Hodson, to name just a few. At the forefront of what would eventually become the New Thought and New Age movements, her finely tuned mind and rational approach to the metaphysical world still sets the bar within the field. Best known for co-creating Therapeutic Touch with Delores Krieger, her influence in the early days of alternative healing far exceeds her notoriety. In addition to being an in-depth portrait of a woman who favored practicality and logical analysis over mysticism and phenomenon, this book is also a unique behind-the-scenes look into the early days of The Theosophical Society. Written by two people who knew her very well, it is a labor of love which demonstrates the same determination and attention to detail that was the hallmark of Dora van Gelder Kunz's work. It will speak to a broad range of your customers on many levels. Let them know that Kunz was especially fond of nurses and worked closely with them during her healings." --Anna Jedrziewski, "Retailing Insight" magazineshow more
