I just read this book prior to attending one of Dr. Weiss' workshops. The book presents further affirmations of past lives, near death experiences and the value of regression therapy. In addition, he documents case studies of progression therapy and offers a balanced presentation of the technique. Dr. Weiss's books, while offering the spirituality that we all yearn for, also offers solid validation of these experiences for us few skeptics. I recommend all of Dr. Weiss' books, especially to newcomers seeking answers in a balanced setting to these topics of reincarnation, NDEs and the "next life".
I always enjoy for the most part hearing the author's own words as it tells me sometimes what is important to the author and helps me determine the authenticity of the work. I felt a sense of wonder from Alexander in his retelling and an authenticity to his experience.I am a believer but a skeptical one of the the other side. Alexander had everything to lose writing such a book and I suspect his professional stature has been battered with this retelling of his experiences. When someone puts his/her reputation on the line, when someone challenges his/her own accepted beliefs, when someone steps outside of his/her own comfort zone and risks ridicule and rejection, it lends credence for me to the telling of their "truth". Eban Alexander does all of these here.The story is an easy listen and at times seems almost magical in its retelling but then would not a visit to the "other side" be magical to anyone? I enjoyed the book and it further enhanced my efforts to explore this "other side", its existence and its experiences. I found a certain synchroncity with other NDE experiences but again it had surprises.
This book does not answer all your questions; but it does offer a glimpse of his experiences and creates even more questions, at least for me, to explore.I highly recommend it.
