In this unique compendium of knowledge from modern science, the Torah and from human experience, the author helps us take the dare and exposes us to ideas and images of the afterlife as we know them. He brings together a variety of sources, stories and anecdotal evidence that will give the reader the courage to taste what awaits us next.
In so doing, he shows us, in a most convincing way, that our lives don't end at death - in fact, we live on in a continuum of life.
The basic premise of this eye-opening book is that we need to study the afterlife as early as possible and not wait until one reaches their golden years or becomes seriously ill. There is much value in the reading of eye-witness accounts of near-death experiences, becoming aware of what kabbalah has to teach, and by learning the powerful words of the Talmud. The sooner we can internalize these concepts, the faster we will get on course toward living a happier and more fulfilling life here in this world.
Dr. Bernie D. Kastner's research has focused on new therapeutic approaches in dealing with death anxiety, end-of-life issues, and bereavement with particular emphasis on personal growth and healing.
"Dr. Kastner has produced a totally unique synthesis of authentic Torah philosophy that includes rich mystical tradition, ground-breaking scientific and medical research, and most importantly, solid advice to help live life to the fullest by overcoming the fear of death."
