(p.1) Introduction
Radiance from Halcyon

Paul Eli Ivey

University of Minnesota Press

Provides an overview of the content. Opening with the emergence of Theosophy in American religious life, Radiance tells the story of a small but significant utopian moment, beginning with an interest in progressive politics based in an understanding of the Iroquois League, led to the creation of an agrarian and artistic utopia on the Central Coast of California called Halcyon. The opening of a nature-cure sanatorium and the interest in electricity and vibration there and in the teachings and music emanating from the group, provided a creative atmosphere that encouraged the youth of the community to experiment, leading to lasting discoveries and inventions in applied physics and music.

Keywords:   Theosophical Society in America, Spiritualism, Temple of the People, Socialism, Occult science, American Esotericism, Health mysticism, Cooperative Commonwealth, Electropathy, Alternative medicine
