“The problem of past life experiences, reincarnation, and karma is becoming increasingly important in modern psychology and psychotherapy. Christopher Bache’s Lifecycles is a gold mine of information on the subject and a highly creative synthesis of traditional concepts and observations from contemporary consciousness research.”–Stanislav Grof, M.D., author of The Adventure of Self Discovery

“Bache, a postmodern philosopher sensitive to ancient wisdom, helps us see that any genuine encounter with our past lives is part of the soul’s quest to know our divine origins and higher purpose on earth.”–Roger Woolger, author of Other Lives, Other Selves

“[Lifecycles] has set a model of elegance in thinking about the area of past lives and clarity in presenting conceptualizations. Bache’s discussion [of karma] provides an invaluable underpinning for conceptualizing the parameters of past-life therapy. He becomes the eloquent spokesman of regression therapy as it is today–or as it will be tomorrow.”–Winafred Lucas, author of Regression Therapy

“Dr. Bache combines fascinating case histories that will be convincing to many and, to all but the obtusely prejudiced, at least plausible. I gladly recommend this book both to the serious inquirer and to the already persuaded.”–Geddes MacGregor, author of Reincarnation in Christianity and Images of Afterlife

Unique in scope, Lifecycles combines the best scientific testimonies about reincarnation with philosophically sound yet accessible arguments about its implications. Lifecycles is the first book to both describe the dynamics of rebirth and explore the ramifications of adopting a reincarnationist perspective. The book begins with a masterful synthesis of recent findings from consciousness research and near-death studies. It includes the work of such eminent therapists and scholars as Stanislav Grof and Dr. Ian Stevenson, and critically surveys the most compelling evidence for rebirth. Lifecycles emphasizes the lessons for self-awareness and spiritual growth inherent in a reincarnationist world view, showing us how we can reconnect with the order, intelligence, and beauty of the universe around us.
