Bodies of Fire, by Malvin Artley
Author Biography from Bodies of Fire:
Science, philosophy, religion and healing have always been Malvin Artley's great loves. Following completion of his undergraduate degree in physics, Malvin has worked in the industrial sector where he designs, builds, and provides technical support for state of the art manufacturing process equipment. His intimate familiarity with the exacting precision and tolerances demanded of computer controlled machinery afforded him the background and deeper skills to design and produce his own equipment which he uses for new healing technologies.

I was born and grew up in the US and was trained in physics at university, receiving an undergraduate degree in the subject and working afterward in the engineering sector. My primary focus over the past 25 years in my free time has been on the sciences as they express the hidden aspects of nature and with bridging work between the two. My special interests are the human subtle energy system, the chakras, or energy centers, physics and technology, astronomy and all aspects of Oriental occultism. Under the suggestion of one of my teachers, I have done extensive work with Chinese astrology and the cycles they use and it has been my passion to bring together the great Western and Oriental systems on such matters over the years. I have been a practising astrologer for more than 20 years and I am an accredited member of the American Federation of Astrologers. I have lectured on various aspects of esoteric studies and written numerous articles on the same aside from astrology with several non-profit organizations dedicated to the teaching of esoteric studies, most notably the University of the Seven Rays. I currently live in Adelaide, South Australia.
