Reincarnation/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer questions related to karma, reincarnation, and life after death, according to the teachings of yoga as taught by Paramhansa Yogananda (master of yoga and author of Autobiography of a Yogi). Yogananda's teachings on these subjects are straightforward, accessible, and helpful to people of any background.

Experience in the area

I am an ordained minister and the author of several books on reincarnation, including The Reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln, Walking with William of Normandy, and Blessed Lanfranc. I have studied yoga philosophy and reincarnation for the past forty years, and I've lectured on these subjects in America and in Europe.

2012-11-15 Loss & Reincarnation:

Dear Wendy,    I am so sorry about your loss. Perhaps even more so than usual, as I just lost my own mother last week.    I don't know if I can be of that much assistance to you, as you are further along

2011-10-08 My Birth Dream.:
