C. M. Mayo is a literary journalist, novelist, memoirist, short story writer, and noted literary translator of contemporary Mexican fiction and poetry. Her books include Metaphysical Odyssey into the Mexican Revolution: Francisco I. Madero and His Secret Book, Spiritist Manual; The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire; Mexico: A Traveler’s Literary Companion; Miraculous Air; and Sky Over El Nido.

Here she describes the difficulties Francisco Madero faced in ruling Mexico after the 1910 Revolution. Some enemies opposed him because he was a spiritist. Others, both on the right and left, felt dissatisfied with his policies. At the end of his life, when faced with a coup d'état, he demonstrated enormous courage in the face of death. This would be consistent with his spiritist beliefs.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He serves as dean of transformational psychology at the University of Philosophical Research. He teaches parapsychology for ministers in training with the Centers for Spiritual Living through the Holmes Institute. He has served as vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, and is the recipient of its Pathfinder Award for outstanding contributions to the field of human consciousness. He is also past-president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people are encouraged to cultivate and apply their inner, intuitive abilities.
