This new topic takes up a discussion started in the Glastonbury Tor thread regarding occult defence, and part of the most recent posts from that thread are repeated below. In addition to the more specific protection of the country during the 2nd World War, Dion Fortune generally placed considerable importance on the need for occult defence, and ‘Psychic Self Defence’ remains one of her most popular books. Is its advice still as relevant today? Do we still have the same need to maintain occult or psychic defence? Are our methods of doing so still the same as 80 years ago, or do we need to re-think them?
