WILLIAM VON HOLST, editor of The New Planetary Reality: The Coming Avatara & the Nine Paths to Enlightenment by Imre Vallyon, holds a Masters of Arts in Art History and Philosophy from the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign. William met Imre Vallyon, who has been his exclusive teacher ever since, in 1986. Over the last 24 years, William has been on over forty month long retreats with Imre all over the world including New Zealand, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Canada and America. William has conducted many sessions on these retreats as well as teaching classes in Chicago, San Diego and the Bay Area. He has helped in the publishing of Imre Vallyon’s material as well. The true spiritual path is participating in an energy field; this is what Imre speaks about in his books and what he radiates on retreats. William has had the good fortune to experience this energy field.
