Afterlives: Firsthand Accounts of Twenty Notable People

If you could speak with any deceased person, who would it be? What would you ask them? These are the questions author and channeler Joanne Helfrich was faced with when many no-longer-physical authors were willing—even eager—to speak through her from their afterlives. But how would she choose who came through? What would they say?

AFTERLIVES is a startling collection of afterlife accounts from some of the most extraordinary people of our times: Anthony Bourdain, Hunter S. Thompson, Ayn Rand, Martin Luther King, Jr., John Barron (former slaver), Thomas Paine, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, Hildegard von Bingen, Paramahansa Yogananda, J.D. Salinger, George Harrison, Douglas Adams, James Baldwin, Kurt Vonnegut, Aldous Huxley, Robin Williams, and Jane Roberts, author of the Seth Material.

The authors reflect on their lives, describe their afterlife experiences, comment on world events, and share their stunning perspectives on the nature of reality.

In addition to providing wisdom and timely commentary, the book:

  • Supports postmodern scientific views that consciousness is primary
  • Endorses religious doctrines of the existence of God, spiritual beings, and eternal life of the human soul
  • Celebrates physical life and the afterlife
  • Discourages suicide; since “we go as we are,” there’s no better time to resolve our issues than now
  • Encourages us to connect with our own Divinity

AFTERLIVES is evidence that there is life after death, that we are surrounded by helpful spiritual energies, and that life is precious and limitless.

This book contains some of the most important and meaningful communications from the afterlife that have ever appeared in print and is as such required reading for all open-minded people in our time.”
– David Lorimer, Science, Consciousness and Ultimate Reality

“Joanne Helfrich’s book is the result of some astonishing channeling of the dead. The communications are wonderful—witty, full of insights and of wisdom. Terrific reading.”
– Prof. Lance St. John Butler, Chairman of the Arthur Conan Doyle Centre
