The worst thing for me is that I want to believe, but guys and books like this are what steal away any belief in it. This organization was created by Armenian teacher and philosopher Georges Gurdjieff, and is based on the idea that man is not fully conscious, but that there are methods that can change this. Furthermore the author finishes the book with a mind numbingly dull chapter about his belief in the special nature of "the triad". Indeed one gets the impression that the more weird things about Whitley Strieber's life surface, the more Strieber looks like an unreliable narrator or at the least a person with an unusually weak mental barrier between fantasy and reality.

Freidman (Basil Hoffman), he describes the visitors while watching a salamander frolic in the physician's aquarium. The accounts of the various visitations are fascinating, especially with regard to the 'old, female, crane-fly' type alien, and the writing creates some eerie and peculiar ideas in the reader's mind. The book was later made into a film directed by Philippe Mora and starring Christopher Walken as Strieber and Lindsay Crouse as his wife, Anne. In consequence, I began to look for and read Strieber's novels, planning to obtain Communion after getting a sense of the workings of his imagination.His copy was a hardcover and he had removed the dust jacket probably at the request of his mother so all we actually saw was a white book with the word "Communion" on the side. This book, which fundamentally changed the way we understand close encounters and alien abductions, is presented here with a new introduction by the author. The author subscribes to no particular interpretation of what has been happening to him or of what has been behind it. I will deal first with what I remember of December 26, 1985, and then with what was subsequently jogged into memory concerning October 4, 1985.

Our cabin is very hidden and quiet, part of a small group of cabins scattered across an area served by a private dirt road, which itself branches off a little-used country road that leads to an old town that isn't even mentioned on many maps. Although I am pretty much an outcast and a pariah when it comes to the mainstream, I lead a blessed life and consider myself the luckiest of the lucky. If for no other reason that you read this book because you are curious about just learning about new things, I highly recommend.Having personally witnessed 3 UFO sightings from the mid 60's, to the last one in August of 1970, his story both reminds me (and frightens me) of how close I was to my 3rd UFO sighting! More telling is the fact that most sightings and experiences have occurred at the rise of communism. Unfortunately The Secret School is book 4 or 5 in this series so I thought I'd read it from the start. The way that they have a "hive mind" and the similar jumpsuits, and even the asiatic looks of the visitors can all seem to be projected fears of communism during the Cold War. The way this was written could at times be hard to follow and I didn't find that it had a very good flow to it.

Communion is the iconic classic in which Whitley Strieber describes his 1985 close encounter experiences.On December 26th, 1985, Whitley Strieber was woken in his isolated cabin in upstate New York, he saw a creature in his bedroom. He founded the Communion Foundation in 1989 to assist in establishing a productive relationship with alien beings. He also examines the mixed reception accorded to Communion both by the mainstream media and within the UFO community.

He looked us dead in the eyes individually and said "it's not the communion you're thinking" and walked away with his book to hide under a tree. Frankly, I’m skeptical about hypnosis, and when a book relies so heavily upon it, I feel a little cheated.After reading his descriptions, hypnosis transcripts and polygraph results, I'm definitely convinced that something happened to him and his family. No wonder I had nightmares back then, but for some reason I am fascinated by the experiences of others.
