Publisher's Summary

Dr. Brian Weiss is a highly respected psychiatrist from the mainstream of the medical establishment. Catherine is one of his most difficult cases, a 27-year-old woman racked by phobias and anxieties. In the course of Catherine's treatment, Dr. Weiss makes a startling discovery. Under hypnosis, she recollects, in vivid detail, events from past lives ranging from the prehistoric times and ancient Egypt to the 20th century and the fires of World War II. Encouraging Catherine to relive her most painful experiences, even her moments of death, Dr. Weiss steers her toward recovery, while his own life is dramatically changed forever.

In Many Lives, Many Masters, Dr. Weiss tells the true story of Catherine, her many existences, her remarkable therapy sessions, and the vision she revealed of the human mind and soul.

Stimulating and Thought Provoking

I watched Dr. Brian Weiss on the most recent Oprah show with Dr. Oz on past regression and hypnosis. I wanted to understand and know more about Dr. Weiss and this audio delivered. This audiobook is the beginning story on how it all began and the revelations that he and his patient found in their sessions. For two true skeptical doctors and Oprah to be changed by this information is worth a listen. If anything, it really makes you "think" about life and lives you might have lived and how they might be effecting you now. Riveting to ponder.

it's incomplete!!

Has Many Lives, Many Masters turned you off from other books in this genre?

it turned me off because it was read edited. the original text is 16 chapters long, I even tried to read the original book to follow the audio...impossible! the audio skips many paragraphs and chapters.

How could the performance have been better?

read the whole book! you charge me more than the paperback? the decent thing would be to read it all

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

it is a really good book, only amputated!

Many Lives, Many Masters

If you're curious about past lives or life after death, this book is a good choice.

The author, Brian Weiss, M.D. is as conservative as they come. A graduate of Columbia University with an M.D. from Yale University school of Medicine, he has taught at many universities. Dr. Weiss was the chairman of the Department Of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai Medical Center and has authored numerous scientific papers. He's not the sort of fellow you'd expected to cure your ills by regressing you to a past life.

Dr. Weiss risked his professional standing - and perhaps his career- by publishing his accounts of these experiences. He believes in reincarnation and I believe him. I had an opportunity to interview Dr. Weiss for a television series and found him and his credentials to be authentic. I highly recommend "Many Lives, Many Masters" as well as his other books.

I always knew...

For 35 yrs. as a pastor’s daughter I knew there was something more God wanted from us. I stumbled upon this book and it has changed my life... I can't possibly put into words how life changing this has been for me. I will never look at life the same again. It led me to so many answers I have spent my whole life looking for. It made me look at all the hurtful, painful things in my past as a blessing I never in a million years expected so much healing from one book. I shared this with everyone in my family, all my friends, co-workers.. I just gave it to them and let them listen to it.

I feel as if I couldn't possibly do it justice with just the words in this review. I wish everyone in this world could feel the peace I feel in my life right now.

Get this book!!! It will be the greatest one hour and twenty eight minutes of your life. I personally listened to it around fourteen times to date.

God Bless you and your family Mr. Weiss and thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this with me and my family. Because, of you our life will never be the same.

Thank GOD!! and Bless YOU!!!

Where it all started for me

I saw Dr.Weiss on the Ophra show a number of years ago.. I found him to be very believable, honest, and down to earth.. Listening to him was like hearing things I'd always believed in, but never said out loud because I never knew anyone else who believed these things..

I immediatly ordered this book and read it, which led me his other books, and then on to many, many other books on the subject, as well as other spiritual books and meditations.

Dr. Weiss narrates this book and I simply love the man's voice. He's kind, understanding and easy to listen to, not to mention the subject matter is fascinating.

This is his first book, and written about a patient he had who came in for therapy because she had so many fears in life.. After many, many sessions that did not seem to be helping, he hypnotised her, and she started talking about past lives... He was very doubtful until, through her, he was given a message about his father and a son who had passed away in infancy, things no one could have known..

I've always been a person searching for answers and not able to just take someone else's truth and make it my own.. It's nice to have books like these to help expand your mind and break down the walls of the boxes people end up in...

If you are on a spiritual journey, or just beginning to ask yourself questions about what really happens after death, this is a great place to start.

horrible abridged version of a wonderful book.

the guts have been ripped out of this inspiring story, and Dr. Weiss, the author, is the narrator. why would he agree to such a travesty?

I selected this book to listen while cleaning house. Didn't get to the cleaning. Sat quietly and soaked in the message. Life-changing.

A great listen!

I really enjoyed this listen, it gave me a different take on many of the same things you read about a possible afterlife and this author delves in a little deeper to find answers.

Everyone in search for the truth that they intuitively know in their hearts should listen to this. Everything comes when they are supposed to. To listen over and over again as a life manual. Thank you!

Excellent!

I got this book after listening to 'Through Time into Healing' but it really didn't matter. In this book Weiss focuses on Catherine, his breakthrough patient, through which he learned all about past lives and what happens when we die. I loved this book because not only does he tell us what happens with his patient but he dually focuses on the impact of these discoveries on him and how they affected his life day to day and overall. The book is short. I was left thirsty for more. This is a good thing because there is no fancy narrative or unnecessary padding - just the facts as he saw/sees them....told in a most empathic and friendly way. I would highly recommend this book for the curious scientist and anyone interested in finding out about past lives.

Enlightening

Although my mother had previously informed me of most things said on this book, and she was the one who urged me to read this, I found that I have gained more knowledge than I could have gained if I had not read this. It is very interesting, and it has made me realise and focus on what I really need to do.
Very helpful and enlightening.
