Rasputin's Spiritual Exercises is a rare book that is part of the world's largest collection of books on supernatural phenomenon, compiled by Charles Foster Hearse. It appears to be named after and/or written after Grigori Rasputin, the infamous early 20th century Russian mystic.
Ray Stantz once saw Hearse's collection on an episode of "Haunts of the Rich and Famous" and always wanted to see the books up close. He got his chance during a Ghost Hunter of the Year challenge. However, Ray's dream come true was interrupted when the ghost of Charles Foster Hearse appeared behind him.
- On page 22 of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters Issue #2, Rasputing's Spiritual Exercises makes a non-canon cameo as one of the books in Ray Stantz' locker.
