The Unlikely Occultist by Isobel Blackthorn

A Biographical Novel of Alice A. Bailey

Discover the fascinating life of Alice Bailey: a long-forgotten occultist widely regarded as the Mother Of The New Age.

The unlikely occultist

Back in 1931, Alice is preparing to give a speech at a Swiss summer school. Soon after, she is put on Hitler's blacklist. What Alice doesn't realize is the enormity of her influence to the world, and the real enemies who are much closer than she thinks.

A dynamic and complex figure, Alice Bailey’s reach was huge. She was influential among people and organizations of global power, including the United Nations. Yet today she is maligned by fundamentalist Christians, Theosophists, Jews, academics and above all, by conspiracy theorists.

Are any of these groups justified in rejecting the unlikely occultist?


“Blackthorn’s exploration of Alice Bailey’s life and work provides a unique and intimate insight into Bailey’s life and the times in which she lived. For anyone seeking to explore the roots of Bailey’s influence on the New Age movement as well as her unsought role as the bête noire of the conspiracy scene, there’s no better place to begin.” - Aaron John Gulyas, associate professor and author of Conspiracy Theories
