Love and the Afterlife:

How to Stay Connected to Your Human and Animal Loved Ones

Foreword by Laura Lynne Jackson

Even if you don’t believe in an afterlife, you are still connected to your departed loved ones. Drawing on Dr. Beischel’s groundbreaking research with psychic mediums and other studies focusing on communication across the veil, Love and the Afterlife provides evidence-based tips for optimizing your continued connection to your departed human and animal loved ones.

This book includes four sections: L.O.V.E. L is for Laying the Groundwork about love, death, and grief. O is for Optimizing our Ongoing connection to the Other Side with useful techniques you can use to facilitate communication. V is for Variations of After-Death Communication (ADC) including love in spontaneous, facilitated, assisted, and requested ADCs. E is for Ever After with practical steps for integrating the provided information into your life moving forward.

Complete with real-life stories and Dr. Beischel’s unique sense of humor and gift for translating research findings into plain, non-specialist language, Love and the Afterlife is a practical guide for anyone interested in exploring the meaningful but taboo topic of our eternal connections to those we’ve loved and lost.

Among Medium:

A Scientist’s Quest for Answers

Among Mediums (2013) is an accessible, bite-sized review of my (at that time) 10-year journey and the answers I discovered along the way. My writing is concise, non-technical, conversational, and entertaining. Larry Dossey, MD, has called me “a courageous, innovative pioneer” and found Among Mediums to be “science writing at its best.”
