Astral projection is the classic term for what today is more commonly called out-of-body experience or OBE. In this fascinating volume, Robert Bruce has drawn on his lifetime's experience not only traveling in the astral dimension, but teaching others to do so.

Astral Dynamics provides, all in one package, a personal narrative, a "how-to," a troubleshooting guide, and a the

Every now and then I would have spontanious astral projections. They were very real and very vivid, and the experiences that I had were amazing. I wanted to know more, I NEEDED to know more, but the information from most of the articles I read weren't enough, weren't supporting my experiences enough. That all changed as soon as I read this book.

Robert Bruce explores the more deeper aspects of astral projection, and while there are some things I may disagree with, or find a better way of doing,

Bruce's book on out-of-body experience is the best I've read over the years, and I've read quite a few. All of my out-of-body experiences were not under my control; I had many in childhood and one big one in my late teens. The world has never seemed quite the same; or rather, I feel like I've been let in on a big mystery. For most people, being conscious is an embodied experience. When you're out of the body, however, you see yourself as a coherent, plasma-like field and can go through walls, do ...more

A pretty good read, I was more than surprised. If I had anything critical to add it would be that some of his subjective experiences have been portrayed as the norm, and they might very well be the norm but we have no way of knowing until some well administered, documented and accepted experiments have been performed. It was very refreshing to read about things I was unable to explain that I had experienced as more common than I once believed.

His language was well thought out for such an abnorma
A brilliant easy to understand guide for astral travel/OBE. It lifts the lid on a topic that has intrigued thousands. For me this is a very useful reference book. For anyone who would like to expand their ability to lucidly have OBE/astral travel then this book will provide an exceptional framework in which to operate and "launch" from.
This is one of the most exhaustive books on the subject of Astral Projection. Even if you don't believe such a phenomenon exists, you certainly will believe that this man has experienced SOMETHING extraordinary. Something I read, and re-read frequently...
واسه کسایی که تو مکاتبی مثله اکنکار تحقیق میکنن یا حتی به این مکاتب اعتقاد دارن خوندنه این کتاب توصیه میشه
این کتاب اثبات میکنه روش های دیگه ای واسه درک وجود روح و خروج از جسم وجود داره
راه های عملی !
A really good book on astral projection. Gives some cosmology, for lack of a better term, and practices to try out.
Quote by Bruce: "It is my considered opinion that when you have an OBE, a dream or a lucid dream, you are not actually moving outside the boundaries of your own mind, because your mind has no boundaries or limits (apart from your own beliefs)." This is not a typical new age book in which a guru claims he knows everything. It feels like he wants to teach you -everything- about OBE without being arrogant. There are some things which I don't agree with but I don't mind, it's still one of the best O ...more

"The compilation of information tihat Robert provides on energy work, mastering astral projection and practicing psychic self-defense can enhance any earthly spiritual journey. This book is packed solid with information about spiritual journey's outside of the body and a vast array of spiritual experiences that focus on understanding and working with energy and the spiritual realms." ~Dulcinea Contreras
The best manual out there for developing the ability to astral travel as well as lucid dream. An incredibly detailed set of practical meditations to strengthen the body of light to prepare for its exit, as well as guide book for interpreting the material found once outside the body. The most modern and effective method.

Recommends it for: Everyone interested in metaphysics
An outstanding introduction to a world accessible by all, easily explained & using western words to describe complex Eastern terms, this book is essential reading for those interested in this area. A landmark piece of work.
Great book if you are into metaphysics. I don't agree with everything in this book, but I enjoyed it and I know the author (actually, I have a signed copy of the book). I got to know Bruce online before he got big.
