C.W. Leadbeater (1847-1934) has contributed to world thought mostly through is work as a clairvoyante. He was an anglican priest when he came in touch with H.P. Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society. During Blavatsky's life he was the recipient of a few Mahatma-letters. These influenced him to go to India.

This was the start of a long career in the Theosophical Society. While he remains well known and influential in his work on clairvoyance with for instance his book The Chakras, he also contributed through finding Jiddu Krishnamurti and writing on the function of the Sacrements in the Liberal Catholic Church, to name just a few subjects.
