Life Beyond Death: The Nature of the Afterlife
By: David Fontana (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
David Fontana examines all the evidential material that has been accumulated about the afterlife. He looks at communications through mediums and witness accounts such as Near Death and Out of Body Experiences (NDEs and OBEs ) and compares them with the descriptions given in such mystical texts as "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" and "The Egyptian Book of the Dead".He explores the whole area of human consciousness and considers the question: if the body and the brain perish at death, what remains to survive? The non-physical nature of mind - the theory of 'subtle' bodies - astral, mental and emotional - could it be that there is a survival of memory, emotions and personality characteristics? He looks at the various descriptions of 'Paradise' - how it is portrayed in Western and Eastern traditions. And inevitably this leads to the contemplation of the meaning of existence - and what is meant by the union with the Divine. Do we create our own reality? What about the existence of infinite possibilities.
David Fontana is Distinguished Visiting Fellow to the University of Wales and Visiting Professor to the University of Algarve, Portugal. A fellow of the British Psychological Society, he has studied and taught meditation for over 25 years. He has written many highly regarded books on child psychology, dreams, meditation and psychological counselling.
