About the Author
Author and Award Winning Filmmaker Richard Martini has written and/or directed 9 indie films. A former free lance journalist for Variety, Inc.Com, Premiere and other magazines, a graduate of the Masters of Professional Writing Program at USC this is his debut non-fiction book on a topic that's been haunting him since the death of a soul mate. After a dream vision of visiting his friend in the Great Beyond, Martini went on a literary quest to find out what the prevailing science and philosophical opinions on the Afterlife are. He journeys into Tibetan Philosophy, makes documentaries in Tibet and India, and eventually is introduced to the work of the Newton Institute, founded by renowned author and hypnotherapist Dr. Michael Newton ("Journey of Souls"). The book contains interviews with numerous hypnotherapists who talk about past life regression and life between life therapy where they help patients examine their immortal identity. He documents some rather startling hypnotherapy sessions including his own, which confirms for him the research that Dr. Newton has pioneered. Touching upon quantum physics, near death experiences, the history of hypnosis and clairvoyant experiences, Martini connects them together with evidence that argues consciousness appears to exist outside of our physical selves, and is connected to our higher spiritual selves in an eternal, yet evolving manner. He discovers that life after death is a return to the source of all things, to the source of our existence, where we gather up the courage and fortitude to make another journey back to Earth with our loved ones, to examine another life where we can learn deep spiritual lessons. "We choose our parents, and together with our loved ones, choose what life we'll lead, whether difficult or not." He takes the reader through this remarkable journey in a clear, concise manner, making the trip enjoyable and easy to comprehend. As one critic put it to him recently, "This book isn't just fantastic, it's profoundly fantastic."
