The Afterlife & the Roots of Theosophy

Most religions say that the soul goes somewhere after death. But solid evidence is tough to find, and despite some credible research, the results have been inconclusive so far.

My own research began many years ago in Vermont, as I looked for answers to the mystery surrounding a family of 19th Century mediums and the people who were attracted to their “ghost shop.” In the end, I wrote Spirits of Desire, a novel based on events surrounding the initial meeting of Helena Blavatsky and Henry Olcott, founders of the Theosophy movement. This four-part essay discusses various theories about ghosts and the afterlife, and offers several excerpts from the book.
