Visionary Fiction embraces spiritual and esoteric wisdom, often from ancient sources, and makes it relevant for our modern life. These gems of wisdom are brought forth in story form and in a way that readers can experience the wisdom from within themselves. It emphasizes the future and envisions humanity’s transition into evolved consciousness. While there is a strong theme, it in no way proselytizes or preaches.
Visionary is a tone as well as a genre. The ‘visionary’ element can technically be present in any genre and set in any time.
Characteristic Features of Visionary Fiction:
- Growth of consciousness is the central theme of the story and drives the protagonist, and/or other important characters.
- Oftentimes uses reincarnation, dreams, visions, paranormal, psychic abilities, and other metaphysical plot devices
- Is universal in its worldview and scope
So in short, the emphasis is on our limitless human potential, where transformation and evolution are entirely possible.
