About the author:
Parallel to an international law career in Germany, Switzerland and the United States, Dr. Peter Fritz Walter (Pierre) focused upon fine art, cookery, astrology, musical performance, social sciences and humanities.

He started writing essays as an adolescent and received a high school award for creative writing and editorial work for the school magazine.

After finalizing his law diplomas, he graduated with an LL.M. in European Integration at Saarland University, Germany, and with a Doctor of Law title from University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 1987.

He then took courses in psychology at the University of Geneva and interviewed a number of psychotherapists in Lausanne and Geneva, Switzerland. His interest was intensified through a hypnotherapy with an Ericksonian American hypnotherapist in Lausanne. This led him to the recovery and healing of his inner child.

In 1986, he met the late French psychotherapist and child psychoanalyst Françoise Dolto (1908-1988) in Paris and interviewed her. A long correspondence followed up to their encounter which was considered by the curators of the Dolto Trust interesting enough to be published in a book alongside all of Dolto's other letter exchanges by Gallimard Publishers in Paris, in 2005.

After a second career as a corporate trainer and personal coach, Pierre retired as a full-time writer, philosopher and consultant.

His nonfiction books emphasize a systemic, holistic, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective, while his fiction works and short stories focus upon education, philosophy, perennial wisdom, and the poetic formulation of an integrative worldview.

Pierre is a German-French bilingual native speaker and writes English as his 4th language after German, Latin and French. He also reads source literature for his research works in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch. In addition, Pierre has notions of Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Japanese.

All of Pierre's books are hand-crafted and self-published, designed by the author. Pierre publishes via his Delaware company, Sirius-C Media Galaxy LLC, and under the imprints of IPUBLICA and SCM (Sirius-C Media).

Short Biography, Book Reviews, Quotes, and Comments

Authored by Peter Fritz Walter

'Charles Webster Leadbeater and the Inner Life' (Great Minds Series, Vol. 9) is a study about one of the greatest and most gifted clairvoyants the world has seen.

As Leadbeater's gift of clairvoyance is the center point of this study, two book reviews have been added that are of equal importance, Shafica Karagulla's study 'The Chakras' (1989) which was done in collaboration with Dora van Gelder, and Dora van Gelder's own first person report, 'The Real Life of Fairies' (1999). Both books were published by the Theosophical Publishing House in Wheaton (Quest Books) which also published all of Leadbeater's writings.

Clairvoyance is an extraordinary human gift, and according to the author of the present book, it should be recognized officially within modern science, for this would yield a wealth of information hitherto unknown to most of our scientists, while the lay public is perhaps more open to recognize such talents. In fact, polls in the United States have shown that 70% of the population believe in psychic powers, and only 30% are among the 'skeptics' which is quite a revealing fact.

Leadbeater was not born with it, but, as the short biography reveals, learnt is through a very developed yogic master from India. This was different for Dora van Gelder who was a natural clairvoyant from childhood, who had an extraordinary speciality.

The very reason why she published the book with Karagulla, an M.D., about the chakras, was that she had the unique ability to make a clairvoyant medical diagnosis, perhaps for the first time in modern history. While today such gifts are more widely known and accepted within our larger scientific paradigm, this was not the case yet at their lifetime.

The book comes with extensive book reviews and quotes, and comments, as well as illustrations.
