Date: April 2015
Duration: 6 hours 47 minutes
Claire Bidwell Smith follows TheRules of Inheritance with After This-anexploration of the afterlife that is part personal and part prescriptive, aninvitation on a journey into the unknown.
In her therapy practice specializing in grief, Smith confronts thequandary of what happens next. In a dynamic five-part structure, she answers theunanswerable questions-Will I ever see my parents again? Can my parents see menow, even though they are gone? Will I remain connected to my own daughterswhen I die?-for herself and for all of us. Chronicling our steps along the paththat bridges this world and the next, she undergoes past-life regressions, sessions with mediums and psychics, and immerses herself in the ceremonies oforganized religion and the rigors of scientific experimentation.
After This is unique in the powerof the personal that underlies the book's message: what we believe about whathappens next affects everything about how we live-and love-right now.
