C. W. Leadbeater
Charles Webster Leadbeater was a British mystic and clairvoyant of the early 20th century who is credited with discovering Jiddu Krishnamurti.
Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854-1934) was a prolific theosophist, mystic and clairvoyant who, through his research and writings, introduced an accessible means of understanding concepts such as karma and reincarnation. Born to Anglican parents in 1854, his family were clergyman from a young age, leading him to be quite studious in spirituality.
He joined the Theosophical Society at 17, living in India for 25 years and traveling around the world to lecture on his spiritual studies. Many regard his greatest work as “The Inner Life” which offers readers a greater insight into esoteric movements from Hinduism to Christian mysticism. Ultimately, C.W. Leadbeater became one of the pioneer’s in bridging the gap between spiritual teachings and everyday life up until his death in 1934.
