Glaskin, G(erald) M(arcus) (1923– )
Australian novelist who has experimented with the ‘‘Christos
experience,’’ a method of inducing altered states of consciousness.
Born December 16, 1923, in Perth, Western Australia,
Glaskin traveled widely. During World War II, he served in
the Australian navy and air force. He began to write short stories
and articles at age 18 in a military hospital.
After the war he worked as a stockbroker in Singapore for
ten years, then returned to Perth in 1959 as a full-time writer.
Beginning with A World of Our Own (1955), Glaskin wrote a
number of novels and other books, as well as several dramas.
His writing has brought him numerous honors in his homeland.
He first encountered the Christos experience through a
group at Mahogany Creek, Western Australia, who published
several volumes of a magazine titled Open Mind. In his first
Christos experience, Glaskin appeared to be transported to a
life in ancient Egypt. In his 1976 book Worlds Within, he describes
the techniques for inducing the Christos experience.
Glaskin wrote three books dealing with the Christos experience
Windows of the Mind Discovering Your Past and Future Lives
through Massage and Mental Exercise (1974), Worlds Within Probing
the Christos Experiment and A Door to Eternity Proving the
Christos Experiment (1979).
