Since ancient times, mankind has wrestled with the notion of life continuing after death. Tales of other worldly experiences and communications with the dead dot history books and mythology from every country in the world. Raymond Moody, author of Life after Life, paved the way for near death studies with his groundbreaking research. Dr. Moody, himself, offers an in-depth explanation of near death experiences and how he came to study near death experiences.
Personal experiences of those who have crossed over are just the beginning of the research. Ancient legends reveal ways that the living can communicate with the dead. Using a mirror, or other such reflective devices, people have had personal encounters with loved ones who have transitioned to the other side. Dr. Moody makes use of this technique to help heal grief-stricken clients and, with Project Hermes, to train a new generation of counselors assisting in the dying process.
