As featured on Oprah’s “Super Soul Sunday,” the classic bestseller on a true case of past-life trauma and past-life therapy from author and psychotherapist Dr. Brian Weiss—now featuring a new afterword by the author.

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 love this book. Dr. Weiss did a excellent job of descriptively documenting his and Catherine's experiences. I felt as if I was in the room for each session. Thank you for overcoming your fears and apprehension Dr. Weiss, and blessing the world with this much needed knowledge. Peace and Light.more
it's an interesting piece coming thru someone who sees everything scientifically. more
Totally Unexpected!!! It feels as if I am starting to find explanations I never new I was looking for in the first place :) thank you more
Easy to read and gives hope.more
This is an excellent book. It is engaging and compelling to read. Necessary topic well dealt with. Don't know why people have so much trouble accepting what is true.more
Love the writing style. He goes quickly from one session to the next, while highlighting the importance learned during each. He doesn't talk too much about himself, or try to make himself "look good" for his ego. He relays the necessary info that we need to know, learn, apply, and share.
I wish he could be my therapist bc I'm very interested in my past lives.
I agree with basically everything this book says, as I too have begun experiencing intuitive abilities after opening my mind to learning new things, and trying my best to live as close to "God-like" in life, and I GUARANTEE once you do too, you'll just "know" things without knowing how, and you'll start to trust your intuition to guide you to higher knowledge.
5 stars for sure!more
This is an account by a psychiatrist with a scientific bent, who comes into contact with past-life material in a patient. It’s cautiously written, mildly interesting, and was of course a lot more revolutionary when it was first published back in 1988.more
Throughout my 50+ years, most especially as a younger person, the feeling of being an "old soul" shadowed me. After reading this book, I may - to a small extent - know why. Hope to read more from Dr. Weiss.more
I had the pleasure of attending Dr. Weiss's Regression Therapy Training at Omega Institute and I can tell you, Dr. Weiss is the real deal! His compassion and willingness to share his knowledge is a blessing. "Many Lives, Many Masters" is a great place to start but I suggest you work your way through all his books and experience his meditation CDs...you'll be in for an experience that will change your view on life and your relationships!more
A true story of a psychiatrist living in Miami, who takes a patient through past life regressions via hypnosis. She has led 86 previous lives. Through hypnosis she is cured of her numerous fears and while in deep trances reveals Master Spirits to the doctor. It is a spiritual journey for all -- the patient, the doctor and the reader.more
Dr Weiss (psychiatrist) records in detail his experiences with a young woman who seeks his expertise in overcoming severe fears and anxieties in her life. True story. After 18 months of unsucessful treatment, Weiss decides to try hypnosis to search her early childhood for traumas that may be causing her distress. Much to his surprise she goes back even further - to previous lives. Being well trained at Columbia and Yale in the scientific method of observation and discovery, he has a difficult time with this very personal experience. He finally gets to a point he can no longer NOT believe. Bottom line: the patient and doctor find the problems and cure the fears. But the experience is so much more than that for both of them.Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, this book is fascinating. And frankly, I don't find it offensive in any way. The views in this book are consistent with many faiths around the world. The excesses, rites, and man-made structures of all religions are stripped away to expose the "secrets" of life and death. This is a book to lessen anxiety and the fear of death. It aims to promote spiritualism and instill hope. It briefly outlines a path for evolving spirits and living in harmony... starting with do not kill and emphasizing balance. If you dare, read it and see what you think. Because you will think something!Recommended.more
Purchased for Erin from the recommendation of Tammy Cunningham. Very interesting and thought-provokign book.more
This one is a real page turner. Fascinating reading. I'll be looking for other work by Brian Weiss and looking up others that he himself has researched. By the way - where are the missing texts from the Bible that were deleted?more
It can be boring at times, but it is an interesting read. It comes up with possibilities of life, and after life. Part of the purpose of this book is to give hope to those facing the great curtain.more
Not sure what to make of this book. Certainly it was interesting and a quick read. But the content leaves me perplexed and certainly bears further research to determine the credibility of the author. Is this really a true case study of a patient? Or is the author writing a very convincing story and calling it true, as that would definitely help with book sales? If it is a true case story, I would like to hear some other psychologist's thoughts as to what might have been going on here. Certainly, if the veracity of the case study could be verified, it would/does raise some difficult questions about religions, reincarnation, and just who/what were the "Masters" talking to the author?more
I am always eager to learn something new or approach life from a new perspective. And this book certainly did the trick. "Many Lives, Many Masters" is an interesting account of a psychotherapist who discovered that under hypnosis his patient would share experiences from her previous lifetimes. During those sessions the patient shared some unique insights into life, death and reincarnation. It definitely sheds a new light on life when you think that everybody is here to learn their lessons and that no deed (good or bad) goes unoticed. The book is a quick read and it will capture your attention from the very first page.more
A disappointing read. The idea of reincarnation has been interested me since high school, when I read [There is a River], a fine book about Edgar Cayce (at least I thought it was fine when I was 17, multiple decades ago). This book is rather thin, although written by a man who (based on his bio) would seem to be bright and thoughtful. It lacks depth, repeats itself constantly although the book is very short, and offers little insight into the characters or the effects of the experience on their lives. It’s like reading a book cover, really.more
Interesting account of a psyacrists look into a woman's problems finding that they relate to her past lives. On some levels it's interesting and on others if you've read anything in this area it adds absolutely nothing extra. Full of messages from the "masters" telling you to live your life to the full and be nice to each other while trying to be the best person you can.more
