Banyen's Description: 

Is there an afterlife, a God, heaven or hell? Will I be alone after I die? Will I feel peace or pain? At some point—after a loved one’s death, during a personal health scare, or even seeing a photo in the newspaper—we confront these most fundamental questions of existence. In this trailblazing exploration, Julia Assante probes these questions, approaching with scholarly precision such subjects as historical accounts, religion, near-death experiences, and after-death communication.

I hear my own experience echoed by those who have come back from near-death events. Struggling for words, they try to explain a light that is not light but something alive and aware and with which they merge... In my view, this knowing light is an aspect of All That Is that can best touch the hearts and souls of human beings.

She then offers convincing evidence for discarnate existence and communication with the dead. This communication, she writes, is not only possible but normal, and “you don’t have to be a saint, shaman, or medium to do it.” Contact with the dead liberates the living from fear, guilt, grief, and uncertainty and creates a transformative shift in our experience of existence.

Much of what is contained in these pages is hard at work challenging beliefs that impede independent awareness. This book is meant not only to stimulate your critical thinking but also to expand the range of questions you ask about the nature of the afterlife and, hence, of reality itself...

My own work as a medium and studies of positive and not-so-positive near-death experiences both show that if a person dies, clinically or permanently, with a fistful of unexamined, dogmatic assumptions, it can cause an array of complications i the immediate afterlife, whereas just a jot of open-mindedness leads to experiences that are full, deep, and transcendent.

“Some books transform lives. This one may transform a planet.” —Larry Dossey, author of The Science of Premonitions
