What happens after we die?
Author and award winning filmmaker Richard Martini explores startling new evidence for life after death, via the "life between lives," where we reportedly return to find our loved ones, soul mates and spiritual teachers. Based on the evidence of thousands of people who claim that under deep hypnosis, they saw and experienced the same basic things about the Afterlife, the author interviews hypnotherapists around the world trained in the method pioneered by Dr. Michael Newton, as well as examining actual between life sessions. He agrees to go on the same journey himself, with startling and candid results. Extensively researched, breathtaking in scope, "Flipside" takes the reader into new territory, exploring the various disciplines of past life regression, near death experiences, and between life exploration. In the words of author Gary Schwartz, Phd, once you've read "Flipside" "you'll never see the world in the same way again."
"Whats amazing about this research is that ANYONE can have the same experience, without nearly dying, but with the help of a trained hypnotherapist who knows the questions to ask. Its a profound concept, but I'm stating that anyone can have the same experience that Dr. Alexander had, and the good Dr. can return to that place if he wants to at anytime (without having to die to get there). Todd Burpos experience is no different than Dr. Alexanders - theyre both essentially the same, and can be replicated using this form of therapy.
"Ive been a student of what happens after we die my whole life - but I dont consider anyone an expert in this field, except Michael Newton whos been doing it longer than anyone. There are no universities that teach this research - so Im a pioneer like anyone else who examines it. It deserves to be studied in the University setting and Im doing my best to get them to consider it to be studied scientifically."
