Ascension is the ultimate goal in the world's esoteric traditions. It is the path of full union with the Soul, full victory over the limitations of physical existence; fully empowered service to God. Drawing on a fifteen-year study of the major esoteric schools, the author offers an understanding of ascension that is comprehensive, clear and practical; addressing such questions as: What is the Eternal Soul or "I AM" Self? What are the specific methods and practices by which we fully unite with it? What evidence and examples of ascension are there? Are we entering an era of global ascension?
