Authoring the Mystical and the Paranormal

An Interview with Jeffrey J. Kripal
Knowing that we were going to dedicate this issue to magic, mysticism and the paranormal, meant that I had to speak with Dr. Jeffrey Kripal. Jeffrey is the J. Newton Rayzor Chair in Philosophy and Religious Thought at Rice University in Houston, Texas. Through Jeffrey's books, I have found a profound co-creative vision of reality in which our paranormal and mystical experiences are writing themselves into existence by inspiring us to write about them. Over the past few years, Jeffrey has become an important mentor to me. Reading his books and our various conversations have had a deep impact on my understanding and teaching. It is a pleasure to share this written piece that was edited from one of our many recorded dialogues.
