From the bestselling author of Life After Life and
pioneer researcher and leading authority on near-death experiences
comes Paranormal, an intimate look at a lifetime spent
fearlessly wrestling with humankind''s most important and
What happens when we die?
Paranormal begins with a harrowing account of Moody''s
suicide attempt-due to an undiagnosed illness that led him into
depression-and proceeds to explore his lifelong fascination with
life beyond our bodies. Moody traces the roots of his obsession
with the point of death and how, at age twenty-three, he launched
the entirely new medical field of near-death studies. He went on to
explore the world of past lives and possible reincarnation before
stumbling into the fascinating realm of facilitated visions.
Moody''s rural research center, Theater of the Mind, dramatically
advances paranormal research by melding ancient and modern
techniques to arouse many of the transformative elements of the
near-death experience in people who are still living.
After more than four decades of studying death and the
possibility of an afterlife, Moody still sees endless promise in
the fringes of psychological sciences, where he continues to seek
answers to what happens to our souls after death.
