Description

In the last fifty years in the West, there have been a number of pioneering new approaches for accessing realms of consciousness that are traditionally considered the deepest spiritual mysteries. In this book Dr. Metzner discuss the experience of birth and of prenatal life, the unconscious psychic imprints of the conception event, the soul's choosing of a human incarnation and the connection with familial ancestors. He also discusses the experience of death of the physical body and the soul's life in the intermediate realms before choosing rebirth into another life. He draws on empirical observations from psychedelic experiences, meditation, shamanic journeys, near-death experiences, deep altered state hypnotherapy, states induced by special breathing practices and findings from the experiential practices of his alchemical divination workshops.show more

Flap copy

In this book I will be discussing the experience of life before birth, and the experience of life after death of the physical body. Doing so transcends the assumed boundaries of the Western worldview of scientific materialism. Mainstream medicine and psychology do not believe there is any prenatal experience to talk about and the mainstream agnostic worldview assumes that we can say nothing about life after death. Nevertheless, in the last fifty years in the West, there have been a number of new pioneering approaches for accessing these realms of consciousness that are at some remove from the presumed ordinary time-space reality. As a radical empiricist in the tradition of William James, I do not exclude any experiences or observations from consideration, just because we can't account for them within the existing paradigms of reality. I prefer the approach of suspending my commitment to a particular paradigm, in order to consider the observations presented, my own and those of others, with impartiality. Inevitably, our reports and interpretations of subjective experience are bound up with our pre-existing worldviews and models of reality. Even in our ordinary, functional waking state it is not always a simple matter to distinguish what I am seeing (observation) from what I think about what I am seeing (interpretation).show more
