Overview

Mark Ireland's father was Dr. Richard Ireland, a renowned mid-twentieth-century psychic. While he honors his father's memory, Mark's own path follows a more conventional trajectory in pursuit of mainstream success - even while he recognizes that his life is becoming "comfortably numb." The unexpected death of his youngest son Brandon wrenches him out of his normal state and plunges him back into the world of his father - the world of psychics and mediums - in an attempt to contact the dead. This story of a father's unbearable loss and his journey to find where the dead go offers hope to the bereaved, and provides compelling evidence that death is not the end of our existence.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The death of his youngest son, Brandon, launched Mark Ireland on a fascinating quest to discover if we survive the death of our bodies by communicating with ancestors, persons who have gone before. For more than a century, many types of scientific inquiries have focused on after-death communications, and Mark studied all of them. He possesses the driving curiosity, open mind, and critical scholarship of a true explorer … [and] his candid, engaging writing style invites the reader to join him on his pursuit of knowledge and understanding of the afterlife.”—Donald E. Watson, MD, neuroscientist, psychiatrist, and author of Surviving Your Crises, Reviving Your Dreams "Not only heart-rending, intelligent, and well-written, but also a wonderful inspiration to anyone who has lost someone dear to them." —Tricia J Robertson; Hon Sec, former President, SSPR; DACE Tutor University of Glasgow; Hon Sec Prism“One of my favorites among the author’s many insights is his discovery that ‘It was time to re-think what it meant to be psychic.… Everyone is psychic.’ In my own academic research, I explore the apparent rift in our society between science and spirit. Mark’s metaphor of two wolves rings true for me: ‘Ours is a world that two wolves try to devour—the first is the wolf of skeptical science and religious fundamentalism (they are the same one). The second is the wolf of our cosmic connection, synchronicity, astral realms, and manifestation by intention. The wolf that dominates our life is the wolf we feed. I needed to feed the right wolf. I needed to lay it on the line from here on in.’ I volunteer to help Mark feed the wolf of synchronicity and connection. After you journey with Mark in this adventure through death, I expect you will want to join Mark also.”—Berney Williams, PhD, Dean of Graduate Studies, Energy Medicine University, and President of the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine"Mark Ireland is a moving writer who reaches out from the pages of his book and emotionally connects with his readers. He speaks not only from the perspective of a father who suffered the ultimate loss, but also as a man who inherited the ability to reconnect with those who've passed on. This book is a must read for anyone trying to comprehend life after death or wanting to learn how loss can create an even stronger bond between the living and those who live again."—Allison DuBois; Subject of NBC’s Medium; Author of Don't Kiss Them Good-Bye, We Are Their Heaven, And Secrets of the Monarch"As a survival of consciousness researcher and explorer, I found Mark Ireland’s book, Soul Shift, to be authentic, scientific in its approach, and very healing. I laughed, cried, and pondered the afterlife. Mark Ireland’s late father—the remarkable Dr. Richard Ireland, was a man of rare psychic and mediumistic talent. Richard Ireland participated in testing, counseled celebrities like Mae West, and Amanda Blake, and also prominent government leaders. This book is a must read." —Maria Talcott, Founding Member of the John E. Mack Institute in conjunction with John Mack, MD, Cambridge MA“Mark Ireland has done a superb job of bringing the unknown up from the depths of the Anima Mundi to the surface of human consciousness. This book impacted my soul, inspiring me to reach out to people once again. It also made me yearn for home.”—Cullen Dorn, author of The Hierophant of 100th Street

    A Must Read For Anyone Who Has Lost a Loved One

    Growing up I never gave death or the afterlife a whole lot of thought. Then came the horrific day of my sixteen-year old son's unexpected death. The thought of him sitting on a cloud looking down at me now seemed ridiculous. As his Mom, I had always known exactly where he was at all times and I didn't want this to change. I have no doubt that he is in his own Heaven and that he is happy, healthy and that he is with God. But I still wanted to know MORE! I began reading EVERTHING I could find about the afterlife. I was even given books on '7 Steps to Get over the Death of a Child'. These books for me were ludicrous. Many written by authors that had never lost a child or even been a parent. Believe me there is NO getting over the loss of your child! Then I found 'Soul Shift: Finding Where the Dead Go' by Mark Ireland. What an outstanding book! Mark's father was the famous psychic Dr. Richard Ireland. Having gone in a different direction than his Dad Mark decided to become a businessman. But after his son's Brandon unexpected death he began a journey to research his roots and many other possibilities to help him. This book blends science, faith and spirituality into one. I must say that of all the books I have read I loved this one best. Mark speaks from the heart as a father who has experienced this unbearable pain personally. His journey to find where the dead go offers hope and evidence that death is not the end of our existence. This book not only made me feel better, but it just make sense!

    2008's best 'Psychic' Book!!!

    The 'journey' begins with the loss of Mark's youngest son, Brandon. To his advantage, Mark Ireland knew just where to go for answers. His own father, Richard Ireland was a well known psychic-medium, who had appeared on The Jack Parr Show 'NKA The Tonight Show' and The Steve Allen Show. Yet for most of his life, Mark really had no need for what his own dad was well known for, again that of a psychic-medium. Upon the death of his son Brandon, Mark embarked upon a race in search of life after death. He wanted and needed answers, thus seeking out the wisdom and knowledge not only from some top U.S. Mediums, but from fraternal family members as well. Mark Ireland has written far beyond anyones expectations, with regards to the loss of a loved one. Religion, for most, teaches us very little if nothing, as to how we will FEEL, upon the death of someone close to us. Not only did I feel the words written in this book, it has left me 'begging' for more! And I'm looking forward to Mark's second book 'soon to come.'
