As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from the "space between lives," which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss' family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career.

I have been intrigued by past life therapies or the recently popular ‘regression’ therapies for psychological problems pertaining to phobias and anxiety situations. Having watched documentaries on the subject, I was recommended to read this book by a friend, who, like many others, suffers from a phobia which he believes, is related to his past life. Many Lives, Many Masters is a story, based on a true-life incident. It revolves around a well known psychiatrist, his patient, and the past-life therapy that helped change both their lives. Catherine was a 27-year old patient, who suffered from anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias. During the course of her treatment, the psychiatrist was in for surprise, at what unfolded at the therapy sessions that ensued. The happenings jolted him out of the conventional mode of treatment and he eventually came face to face with the concepts of reincarnation and the many tenets of Hinduism. Interestingly, I thought the tenets of Hinduism was taught and practiced only in India but was pleasantly surprised to see the impact it had on the entire therapy. The patient here is believed to have lived 86 lives in different regions of the world and could recall (through the regression therapy sessions) the names and physical appearances. She even remembered the reasons that led to her death. This book has been an eye-opener for me. Catherine's insight into the near death situations are so believable. I recommend this book to everyone who wishes to learn more about the highly evolved souls, the lessons we ought to learn in life, to set order and improve the life that we are going to live in the future. This has indeed been an awe-inspiring book by Dr. Brian Weiss.
